I am trying to crop a video clip (originally 960 by 540) in two 4 parts (top-left, top-right, etc..) and I use this command below (with of course corrext x/y positions):
ffmpeg -i mov_a.m4v -vf "crop=480:270:480:270" mov_a_4.m4v
The problem is, the bit rate of each cropped clip is different. What I am trying to do is to put this 4 movie parts in 4 android tablets and start them at same time (to form a multi screen).
I am quite sure that the PLAY command reaches the android tablets at the same time (well a very little time difference). But then I have this 4 clips out of sync, and I guess its because different bit rates, the player has to do more work to load the higher parts with higher bit rate.
Even if you think this is not the problem, is it possible to force the output of FFMPEG to have exact same bit rate for all 4 parts of the movie? if so, what should I change in my command line above?
Thanks for your help!
