I will start using FFV1 to archive video for a museum and I will like to know what's the best settings to get smaller files. I will use version 3 with checksums. From the few tests I did I found that those settings were the best for smaller files:
- coder 1
- context 0
- g 1
- slices 4
I really don't know what to think about context size. Somewhere else I saw that large context create smaller files. But in my tests that was the inverse.
I also tried 2 pass without any success. The final file were exactly the same size as the one created with 1 pass. And the log of the 2 pass was filled only with 0 except for the last number that was something like 843?
