  1. Hello,
    i am developing a video converter / editor and i need a list of the available FFMPEG encoders (and the most recommended one) for each container format.

    Do you know where to find this resource ?

    Also, is there a list with the recommended ffmpeg arguments for converting videos to different formats and for different devices (such as iphone, ipad, android etc).

    Thank you !

  2. Hello,
    this is just a list of the available codecs.

    I want a list of which encoders can be used for each container format and which is the most recommended one.

    Speaking in general...

    For AVI: do not use H.264, H.265, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, WMA, Vorbis, FLAC, WavPack;

    With MP4: do not use WMV, WMA, Vorbis, VP8, VP9, Theora;

    With MKV: do not use WavPack;

    With MPG: do not use Xvid, AAC, H.264;

    As for TS: do not use VBR MP3, Opus (for the time being, at least);

    I haven't seen any list just for ffmpeg supported encoders.
