    Question ffmpeg defaults


    Hey guys,

    I'm running FFMPEG 0.10.5.

    When I use libx264 to create MKV files, FFMPEG defaults to a quantizer value of 28.

    I'd prefer to use a quantizer of 23 but can't find a configuration file in which to adjust that value.

    Does anyone know what value to put where for FFMPEG on Linux (Gentoo, amd64, Kernel 3.6.4) and where FFMPEG looks for it's default configuration values? I'm happy to set it system-wide, or per-user.

    Cheers,

    Kirk

    Hello and welcome!

    Check out the ffmpeg man page:
    Code:
    man ffmpeg
    and look for the section titled Preset files. Under there, it explains about where files (e.g., $HOME/.ffmpeg) are read upon start-up. You may be able to put your settings there.

    Heh, yeah. You think that's big, try the gcc man page some time (warning: don't attempt man gcc on a relic PC or you may crash).

    Btw, if this issue has been resolved for you, you can mark this thread as Solved using the Thread Tools link at the top of the page.
