Which params I can use to obtain a transcode all-i based? No B and P frames?

I know that this is not efficient for compression purposes but this is not my case now.

I guess i have to fiddle a bit with -x264-params or -x265-params but I don't know the switches to do it :)


For H264

ffmpeg -i input -c:v libx264 -intra output

For H265, seems no alias or preset has been set yet

ffmpeg -i input -c:v libx265 -x265-params frame-threads=4:keyint=1:ref=1:no-open-gop=1:weightp=0:weightb=0:cutree=0:rc-lookahead=0:bframes=0:scenecut=0:b-adapt=0:repeat-headers=1 output

H265 code stolenborrowed from here.

  • The commands for h265 can be used for h264 as well including some tuning ? Also, can I use frame-threads=1 instead of 4 ? Thanks :) – user3450548 Nov 22 '15 at 10:01
  • Should be no problem, on both counts. – Gyan Nov 22 '15 at 10:08
  • Thank you :) Also I was wondering if repeat-headers=1 is really necessary. – user3450548 Nov 22 '15 at 11:01
