I was looking for validation for my startup idea. Please flag if this is off-topic.
Idea: CRF's as a service - When encoding h.264 and libvpx videos, I tend to guess good Constant Rate Factors(CRF's) to make my videos smaller. I bet you guys experience the same. Instead of guessing, why not send the video to a dedicated 'crf-finder' then encode it later? The "crf-finder" would take a single video frame and find the best crf value.
- Do you think this is dumb?
- How much would you pay for this? This is my landing page. Perhaps you could look at it, subscribe to my mailing list or even try it out. I'm not charging - only trying to figure out if this is useful.
