I would like to learn a lot about Transcoding video files with FFMPEG from any format to mp4 (hH264/AAC) format. We have a large repository of video files ranging from 1 MB to 2 GB of various formats like mkv,mp4,avi,wmv,mov,m4a etc including both HD and SD.
After converting we will be uploading the files to a CDN from where we stream it through JW player.
So, the goal here was to attain a maximum quality with reasonable file size and has to stream faster.
I am planning to use FFMPEG for transcoding.
Please point me to the articles where I could learn about efficient transcoding.
