It's kind of subjective, but I'm not able to produce 100% smooth videos with ffmpeg. As input I use https://www.libde265.org/hevc-bitstreams/tos-1720x720-cfg01.mkv as a example.This is a h264 mkv video which is running really badly with my vlc player on my win7 laptop.Converting it to a h264 video let it play much better, but it still appears not to be 100% smooth. Especialy in Vegas 9 it even hangs like once a second.
Other h264 videos even with 1080p or bigger run perfect with vlc and much better with Vegas, so it is not my laptop.
its seems that there can be a lot of differences between h264 and h264?? what could i try to make them more smooth?
I'm using following command to convert the video:
ffmpeg.exe -i INPUT_FILE -ac 2 -vf scale=trunc\\(oh*a/2\\)*2:480 -c:v libx264 -sn -dn -map_metadata -1 -map_chapters -1 -profile:v high -level:v 4.0 -pix_fmt yuv420p OUTPUT_FILE
