I have many tapes that I want to encode with some current, compact codec. this is the output from ffprobe:
[dv @ 0x5642a174c5a0] Estimating duration from bitrate, this may be inaccurate Input #0, dv, from 'dvgrab-001.dv': Metadata: timecode : 00:15:14;26 Duration: 00:00:46.88, start: 0.000000, bitrate: 28771 kb/s Stream #0:0: Video: dvvideo, yuv411p, 720x480 [SAR 8:9 DAR 4:3], 25000 kb/s, 29.97 fps, 29.97 tbr, 29.97 tbn, 29.97 tbc Stream #0:1: Audio: pcm_s16le, 32000 Hz, stereo, s16, 1024 kb/s Stream #0:2: Audio: pcm_s16le, 32000 Hz, stereo, s16, 1024 kb/s
which video codec from ffmpeg is recommended? output should be watched on a smart TV with 16:9 physical, but I do not expect result will be wide.
