it actually is but admittedly a bit hidden in 5.4 "Main Options"
(output,per-stream)’‘-qscale[:stream_specifier] q (output,per-stream)’
Use fixed quality scale (VBR). The meaning of q is codec-dependent.
This is something that would probably be best documented for new users
in a kind of how-to document because it is one of the more important
ones to know but as always, someone must volunteer to write and
maintain such a document. But I would guess that it is in one of the
documents that you find when googling around. Problem with those is
that many of them are outdated or plain wrong :-(. ffmpeg is such a
powerful and fast-evolving tool that writing and maintaining
comprehensive docs is a lot of work but documentation has improved _a
lot_ in the past 2 years.
