Making ffmpeg truly quiet (non verbose)

ffmpeg is a great program, but can be rather verbose in it's output. This can be problematic if you're trying to use ffmpeg in a script. The best way to make ffmpeg truly silent in it's output is with the following options:

ffmpeg -hide_banner -loglevel error ...

This will hide the startup banner, and any encoding stats. Assuming your encode goes normally you shouldn't get any output at all.

FFMPEG: Using VBR encoding for MP3s

I'm a big fan of using VBR for MP3s. I use FFMPEG to convert video (and sometimes audio) files to different formats. If you want to utilize VBR with LAME when you do FFMPEG conversions you need to specify the libmp3lame encoder, and then a given quality level:

ffmpeg -i input.wav -codec:a libmp3lame -qscale:a 2 output.mp3

ffmpeg -i video.mp4 -codec:a libmp3lame -qscale:a 6 /tmp/output.mkv
