I would like to re-encode an MPEG4 video into H.265 and want to manually control the number of B frames in the encoding. I tried the following command:
ffmpeg -i test.avi -c:v libx265 -preset medium -x265-params crf=23 bframes=0 test_HEVC.mp4
as suggested by the x265 documentation. However, I got the following error:
[NULL @ 0x7f4e46f82e80] Unable to find a suitable output format for 'bframes=0'
bframes=0: Invalid argument
The command works fine without
bframes=0, so I must be making a syntax error there. What would be the correct version?
