I've been using -ofps 15 or -ofps 25 on some videos. A change between
both didn't seem to affect much (filesize, quality, dis-aligment between
video and audio, ...). Is there a generally recommended setting/procedure?
You said that ffmpeg outputs a proper rate. With which command? Would I
then use mencoder with that ofps and get the "best possible" framerate?
Does that work/make sense for other formats as well? My problem is that
I need to transcode a large variety of formats to FLV and have one
And if I find a proper rate with ffmpeg: What's the advantage/difference
instead of using ffmpeg completely? I thought that mencoder with it's
win32-codec-support supports more formats than ffmpeg does etc.
