My Video Encoding Profiles

I use them to encode videos for YouTube and kind of archive. Videos are not that important, so they can be a bit blurry.

Currently I prefer VP9+Opus or Vorbis. Trying to evade patented codecs with crazy politics. AV-1+Opus also make sense. H264+AAC and high profile are classic.

4:4:4 subsampling is important for recordings of text, games can handle 4:2:0.

I’ll just throw it there and later maybe add more info.

Kdenlive profile, easy to extract ffmpeg arguments:



To convert extracted Blu-ray (legally bought of course) with makemkv to MKV including subtitles:

bash ffmpeg -i bluray:"." -analyzeduration 2147483647 -probesize 2147483647 -scodec ass -acodec flac -vcodec copy out.mkv

This probably won’t work:

bash for i in *.m2ts; do ffmpeg -i $i -analyzeduration 2147483647 -probesize 2147483647 -scodec copy -acodec flac -vcodec copy $(basename $i .m2ts).mkv; done

I kind of lost other profiles, will add them later.
