Lesson of the Week: Computing VMAF with FFmpeg

This lesson teaches you how to compute VMAF with FFmpeg. It includes a download link to a specially compiled version of FFmpeg that can compute VMAF and to a zipped file that contains the batch files and input/output files shown in the lesson.

I’m adding it as a lesson to my course Computing and Using Video Quality Metrics.


If you’re encoding with FFmpeg, this lesson will make it simple to build quality checks right into your encoding strings.¬†Here are separate links.
