BTW, thanks for the fantastic guide and all the support you've provided after the fact. Very helpful!

You might want to also take a look at the -vo-lavc branch of MPlayer2. There's still some things mencoder can do that it can't, but those might be relatively minor in comparison.
Hmmm... OK, I'm getting a problem when trying to get ffmpeg to use multithreading. I set -threads 0, but am getting an error "automatic thread number detection not supported by codec". Thoughts?
Actual command is:
Code:ffmpeg -i input.mkv -acodec libx264 -crf 22 -level 41 -preset slow -vf crop=720:352:0:62 -acodec copy -threads 0 output.mkv
Change "-acodec libx264" to "-vcodec libx264".
OK, another question... Is there any way to reduce the amount of data that ffmpeg is outputting to the shell? For example, it's printing out all of the chapters to the shell. I've tried -loglevel quiet, but that doesn't seem to be doing the trick.
FakeOutdoorsman, is it ok to place the link to this tutorial (with the first post copied, only), to make this tutorial available on our forum too?
We are creating an "official" (if you can even call it like that) FFmpeg forum, so we would like to have your tutorial there if you would allow that.
The link to the copied tutorial would be this: http://forum.ffmpeg.org/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=4
If you don't agree to such thing, we will delete that copy.
EDIT: forum.ffmpeg.org is not yet in the function, you can use this instead: http://ffmpeg.test-lab.ch/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=4
You can always find me at: irc://irc.freenode.net/ffmpeg if you need.
