My tutorial How to Encode with FFmpeg 5.0 is up on Streaming Media.com.
By way of background, on January 17, 2022, FFmpeg released FFmpeg 5.0, called Lorentz. To celebrate and to help introduce new users to the power and ease of FFmpeg, I created this entry-level tutorial for single and two-pass encoding with FFmpeg.
You’ll learn basics like:
- Choosing the codec
- Setting the I-frame interval
- Choosing a bitrate control technique and controlling bitrate
- How to use two-pass encoding
- How to produce AAC audio.
