    Re: Error on avconv 2-pass

    my understanding is that the 2-pass process optimizes the conversion, re size and quality.

    is that incorrect?

    Re: Error on avconv 2-pass

    thx, but this is for conversion to audio-only mp3, so i think your suggestions about video would not apply. Is h.264 for audio mp3's?

    Re: How To Set Mp3 Quality in avconv?

    i wonder if -ab is a shorthand for "audio bitrate".

    any ideas about my issue, above, re 2-pass?

    also, is 0 not best quality?

    thx!

    Re: How To Set Mp3 Quality in avconv?

    i'm not seeing "-ab" in the man page i linked, nor in "avconv -h". Is it documented someplace?

    also, there's another option, '-b', which is for bitrate, right? Wouldn't that potentially conflict?...
