I am trying to convert a video to h264 format with mencoder. I can do this with ffmpeg easily but I want to learn more on using mencoder.
Here is the code I used
mencoder mytrip.avi -oac copy -ovc x264 -x264encopts preset=veryslow:tune=film:crf=15:frameref=15:fast_pskip=0:threads=auto -o mytrip.mp4
But I get this error
MEncoder 1.1-4.7.2 (C) 2000-2012 MPlayer Team
-x264encopts is not an MEncoder option
Exiting... (error parsing command line)
It seems options that were once available are not available in newer versions of mencoder.
Does mencoder uses a different syntax for h264 encoding?
