How can encode video with images like these help me ffmpeg ?

  • It's unclear what you're asking. Do you want to know how to stack multiple images horizontally and then overlay another image on top?

1 Answer 1


To overlay a half-sized version of a video in the center of an image, use

ffmpeg -loop 1 -i image -i video
-filter_complex "[1]scale=iw/2:-1[ovrl];
-map "[v]" -map 1:a -c:v libx264 -c:a copy output.mp4

To frame the video:

ffmpeg -loop 1 -i image -i video loop 1 -i frame
-filter_complex "[1]scale=iw/2:-1[ovrl];
-map "[v]" -map 1:a -c:v libx264 -c:a copy output.mp4

If you composite the frame onto the background image beforehand, in ffmpeg or elsewhere, you can just use that resultant image with the first command. Of course, you'll lose freedom of movement for the video overlay.
