FFmpeg H.264 Constant Bitrate (CBR) Encoding

Example command using a single-frame VBV: ffmpeg -i <input> -r 25 -c:v libx264 -x264opts nal-hrd=cbr:force-cfr=1 -b:v 2500k -minrate 2500k -maxrate 2500k -bufsize 100k output.ts where: nal-hrd=cbr set the hypothetical reference decoder (HRD) to CBR and pack the bitstream to the specified bitrate force-cfr=1 force constant framerate timestamp generation -b:v the video bitrate -minrate -maxrate same … Continue reading FFmpeg H.264 Constant Bitrate (CBR) Encoding
