    ffmpeg - webm to xvid


    Hi there,

    I have a *.webm file downloaded from YT. The file is of very good quality 1280x768 and 1000fps.

    I need to convert the file to any format that will allow for exactly the same quality.

    Reason: kdenlive does not support webm, it will accept the clip but then it will crash or behave funny.

    Here is what I was already trying:

    ffmpeg -y -i TheProblemOfEvil.webm -f webm -vcodec libvpx -acodec libvorbis -r 1000 -sameq OUTPUT.webm

    The results of the above command were not to encouraging. Any fast motion on the screen results in a bunch of colorfull rectangles.

    Any suggestion highly appreciated.

    I don't know the considerable ffmpeg fu required for this kind of conversion, but I can tell you the eRightSoft's SUPER is pretty good with most video formats I throw at it. btw, good luck finding the download link!

    It is Windows only software as far as I know, but that is one of the reasons I still have Windows...
