I am using FFmbc (a FFmpeg derivative) to transcode some video files to H264 (in a mov wrapper).
I want to specify baseline profile (to reduce CPU usage) but can't figure out how. There doesn't seem to be a simple option to specify this - I understand the profile is derived from whatever options I have specified.
However most examples are for FFmpeg and FFmbc rejects them.
The suggestion to use "-flags2 +bpyramid+wpred+mixed_refs-dct8x8" gives the errors:
[NULL @ 0x101093600] [Eval @ 0x7fff5fbfce20] Undefined constant or missing '(' in 'bpyramid' [NULL @ 0x101093600] Unable to parse option value "bpyramid+wpred+mixed_refs-dct8x8" [NULL @ 0x101093600] Error setting option flags2 to value +bpyramid+wpred+mixed_refs-dct8x8.
What am I missing here?
