Transcode is a fantastic tool for video transcoding, but it has many options and video transcoding and editing itself is not a trivial task.
Here you can find a collection of usage examples.
Command line in principle
This is a basic command line for most uses
transcode -i sourcevideo -p sourceaudio -x vmod[,amod] \ -o destvideo -y vmod[,amod] \ -J filter ...
The -i option specifies the filename of the source video. If the video file contains no audio stream, it can be read from a separate file using the -p option. The output file name is given with the -o option.
The -x option sets the video[,audio] import modules. If omitted, transcode will probe for appropriate import modules. The same aplies for the -y option, but for export modules and if omitted, transcode will encode to the null module.
Here are some basic examples, expecially those who explain the usage of the transcode command line options.
- Video Resizing - Resizing the video.
- Video Clipping - Adding or removing black borders to the video.
- Pass-Through_Modes - Pass-through video and/or audio without convertion.
