Hello everyone. I'm new to ffmpeg and recently tried to encode a video
Image #1 : this is the source
[Attachment 55000 - Click to enlarge]
Image #2 : this is some else's video using ffmpeg and same source

Image #3 : this is my video in 480p quality and using ffmpeg without any filter

As you can see Image #2 color is more like the source. Can anyone suggest any filter in ffmpeg that will do such a thing? I've used sharpen filter but the color was still far from the source.

The source isn't marked as bt.709 (rec.709) but since it's HD the player may be assuming bt.709. The sample you're trying to match is marked as bt.709. My guess is you need to mark your video as bt.709. Add "-colorspace bt709" to your ffmpeg command line.
The general rule is that HD video uses rec.709 and SD video uses rec.601. The exact behavior of players vary, but in the absence of the flag indicating which to use some players assume rec.709 for HD, rec.601 for SD. Some players ignore the flag and always use the same one.
