Bash: Bulk Convert M4V to Good Quality FLV using ffmpeg

14 June 2011 No Comment

High Quality – File size ends up being larger than the M4V
for i in *.m4v;do ffmpeg -i $i -ar 22050 -qscale .1 ${i%.*}.flv;done
Quality is almost indiscernible from the original M4V in a laptop
for i in *.m4v;do ffmpeg -i $i -ar 22050 -ab 96k -qscale 2 ${i%.*}.flv;done
Slight degradation in quality. File size approx. 35% less than the original m4v.
for i in *.m4v;do ffmpeg -i $i -ar 22050 -ab 96k -qscale 5 ${i%.*}.flv;done
