I am finally using FFMPEG after using programs like Virtualdub2 but I do need some clarity with some of the commands. Do not get me wrong, the resources that some people sent to me do help but I do some clarity on some of the commands. When you are inputting a video to convert another video, do need to type out the file location or just the video file?
That's a very general question, you will have to ask for a specific command if you want help since ffmpeg has a loooooot of options. But you can use the following command to get help:
-h -- print basic options -h long -- print more options -h full -- print all options (including all format and codec specific options, very long) -h type=name -- print all options for the named decoder/encoder/demuxer/muxer/filter/bsf/protocol See man ffmpeg for detailed description of the options.
If the output is to long you something like: ffmpeg -h |more And it shows a part of the text on the screen everytime you pess a key...
