I asked on the ffmpeg-users mailing list, and it was suggested that I add -brand 3gp6 to my encoding command. This achieved the result in mediainfo that I was looking for. However, it remains to be seen whether this really reaches the same compatibility with older hardware that YouTube's 3GP files have. I don't have any old hardware to test with, lol. ...

A standard for WAV is 48K / 16 bit mono, or stereo if there's ambiance or presence you'd like to preserve. The last two parameters are a consequence of those choices and you can calculate them based on your selection. Then any compression you might apply afterward will have a good starting basis. If all you're after is intelligibility, a lower sample rate ...

Why would you want your videos in the .3gp container to begin with? Its a very irrelevant format nowadays, there is practically no device that supports the 3gp container but not MP4 at the same time. Its nothing but a close derivative of MP4, they are very similar container formats holding the same codec. If you want to support a lot of devices using h264 in ...

Just to add a bit to AJ Henderson correct answer. You do can compress in a lossless way with h264, this is the lossless predictive profile and is achieved by encoding with a CRF setting of 0. Though while you get lossless h264 compression that way you will endup with a larger file than your source file. Lossy compression cant be done twice without loosing ...

You have a misunderstanding of how compression works. In all but a few specialized types of lossy compression, when you compress something a second time, even in a much higher quality level than previous encodings, you still lose additional quality. Using a slower encoding from the same original source with constant quality will often produce a smaller ...

-preset Use the slowest preset that is fast enough that it does not drop frames. You can see if ffmpeg is dropping frames in the console output (if I recall correctly). Presets are: ultrafast, superfast, veryfast, faster, fast, medium, slow, slower, veryslow. -crf Use the highest -crf value that still provides an acceptable quality level. Range is 0-51. 0 ...

You specify a preset and a quality value at the same time and by that overriding the preset. I would also recommend you don't encode with ffmpeg while capturing as this would be pretty slow on most PCs. The "error" in your ffmpeg commandline is the option -crf 1. CRF is a quality setting of x264 and the lower the value the higher the bitrate of the video ...
