View Full Version : [ubuntu] MEncoder: Capture in HQ?

July 11th, 2010, 02:09 PM
First: Hello :).

Now, I recently bought an EasyCap-Capture Device, and although I know that you can't expect great quality from it, I still try to push it to the limit, and get the best quality as possible. I've found some scripts from an User here, and changed them a bit, though, the videos still don't look alright on Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLp91bicymI) (not full screen/black bars). So I hoped that you could share some tips...

Here's the Script I currently use to record:

mencoder -tv driver=v4l2:width=720:height=576:device=/dev/easycap0:forceaudio:alsa:adevice=/dev/easysnd1:immediatemode=0:audiorate=44100:input=1:n orm=PAL_60 -noskip -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=6000:aspect=16/9 -oac mp3lame -lameopts mode=1 -o Recorded tv:// After that, I'll deinterlace the video with this script:

ffmpeg -i Recorded -target pal-dvd -deinterlace -sameq -aspect 16:9 Final.aviI would like to record in the best possible quality (with such a ****** device :P), so no black bars, 16:9, 720p, etc. Thanks in advance!
