There are lots of suggested parameter lists out there for ffmpeg to encode iPod Touch video, but I thought I'd subject the question to SuperUser.com to get some good answers.

How do you encode iPod videos with ffmpeg?

The best answers should explain why they are using specific parameters.


This is maybe not exactly what you want, but I would recommend using HandBrake for doing this, which is a free, multi-platform and easy video encoder with special profile for iPhone / iPod.

  • Looks like a great app. I didn't know it was mutli-platform. It's got a command-line interface as well, so I'm happy.
