I am not using this for Gallery 2, but hopefully someone can help. I got a lot of good information from this forum when trying to install ffmpeg.
If I do:
It converts the video perfectly, same quality of the file (Hence 'sameq'). But... It increases the file size by 400% in the outputted Flash video. It turns a 10MB video file to a 40MB FLV file.
Now, I've messed around with the bit rate settings, like:
It sure does decrease the video size, but the quality is crap. Even if I bump it up to 2000, it makes little difference. I've tried going through FFMPEG's documentation and looking for things I can use to increase the quality, but most of the things I really don't understand.
What are the 'optimal' settings for FFMPEG, to produce a quality close to the original, but still keeping size in mind?
