Since I consider this a substantial portion of the hobby, I think it's only suitable for us to have a thread about video editing and sharing.
Now I'm no pro at cutting and pasting shit, but I do have some experience with this stuff, so I'll be sharing whatever little knowledge I have with the rest of you. Secondly, I will use this thread to announce any of my possible streams I (or anyone else might) do, because I legitimately don't like to flaunt my stream links on different threads, always feels like I'm namefagging or something to that effect.
Speaking off effects, I highly recommend any aspiring video artists (read: newfags) of video editing software to focus on everything OTHER than effects. This a rabbit hole that will take you to the deepest street shitting corners of youtube and general web if you wish to learn what is possible with proper knowledge of these fiddly beasts. For now just repeat the old mantra Less is More. You've still got intros, timing, cuts, length and a shitload of other things to worry about. Don't lose the forest for the trees.
>Which program should I use?
The two most known commercial giants are Adobe Premiere and Sony Vegas. They both function mostly the same, but from my experience Vegas is a tad less RAM hungry. Pics related are the keyboard shortcuts for each, you will learn to both love and hate them Redo is bound to Ctrl+Shift+Z in Premiere instead of the classic Ctrl+Y. It should also be mentioned that if you  wish to render any videos you're edited in Adobe Premiere, you'll also need to install Adobe Media Encoder of the same generation (if you're using Premiere 2017 CC, you better install Media Encoder 2017 CC as well, 2019 might not gel).
There are loads of other video editing programs, but I can't say I've tried any, so I have no real say on which are better or worse. All I know if I once installed a program called Nuke which was said to have been used in professional movie editing process and I couldn't even import a single video file. 
If you only need to make a simple cut or re-encoding of a video into a webm, then I suggest you use a simpler solution like StaxRip or get your hands dirty with ffmpeg itself in the command prompt.

I really fucking hate Premiere for it's unnecessary shortcuts choses and how fucking slow it is, I know that Vegas is known for crashing all the time but I haven't experienced anything like that especially on the newer versions, and Vegas is steadily catching up with Premiere in terms of features.
It's also easier to crack unlike Adobe shit

People generally don't have the patience to watch your entire playsession. Like the other anon said, it's best to condense your experience to a few highlights or notable examples of whatever you want to point out in any given conversation (for example, the delay on Simon's whip attack and Shatterhand's punch). Nvidia has a function which lets you automatically record gameplay highlights, but for the life of me I could never get it to work or any of Nvidia's tools for that matter.
While recording, it's a very good idea to WRITE DOWN TIME CODES whenever you get a chance to do so without interrupting your game's flow. Trust me, it will save you hours of looking for that one specific clip you could have sworn was between 35:00 and 46:30.
Pic related. It's an example of my 2 hour long stream. This one I did after recording though, since I couldn't stop every couple of minutes to jot this shit down while I was live, so I accelerated playback speed x4 and did this in about 30 minutes.

If your game has a tiny as HUD and lots of details, you're going to have to render a fuckhuge file, both in filesize and resolution. Otherwise it'll come out like a jumbled mess nobody will pay attention to.
installgentoo suggests Shotcut (https://shotcut.org/) and Kdenlive (https://apps.kde.org/en/kdenlive), both are based on ffmpeg, so they ought to be perfect for webm editing.

Vegas starts crashing with no survivors once you get pretty far into a project with a shitton of content. It got to the point where it would crash every five minutes, then I'd have to take three minutes for it to load everything back up, edit for five minutes, then have it crash again. rinse and repeat.
it's definitely fun and easy to use though

I recommend Kdenlive. It does everything a cutting program needs to do and uses FFMPEG
meaning you can encode in good codecs a lot of commercial shit programs don't even offer.
It werks for me. https://kdenlive.org/en/download/

As an alternative you can use Sony Vegas or whatever makes you happy. Avoid Agoybe shit like Premiere Pro or After Effects.
You need extra programs for every little shit. Like Adobe Media Encoder to actually render what you've done.

In this post I'll be sharing a few pieces of advice for video related tasks, geared towards beginners. I'm not an expert by any means but I do have a fair amount of experience that I want to share with others, to help them get started faster than I did. If there are any mistakes feel free to correct them.

>what is a video?
A video is a combination of a visual stream (images/frames) plus an audio stream (sound). A video can have multiple audio streams, for example an English audio stream and a Japanese audio stream, and can also have multiple visual streams but that has very few use cases. Each stream is encoded using a codec, and all streams are wrapped up in a container.
>what is encoding?
Generally speaking, encoding is storing original data using a certain method or structure, such that:
  1. The result can be understood (decoded) by a certain program, for example a video player.
  2. The result has smaller file size (compression), but not necessarily.
>what is a codec?
A codec (coder-decoder) is a program or algorithm that does the encoding/decoding. For example a program like VLC has built-in codecs for viewing and converting between the different encoding formats. The most common video codecs are H264 and VP9. The most common audio codecs are AAC and Opus.
>which codecs should I use?
The H264 + AAC combo is the most used and what I recommend. These 2 codecs encode the fastest, their only drawback is they're not open standards like VP9 + Opus... Ultimately the codecs don't matter that much, what matter more are the settings you use when encoding, I'll elaborate on that later.
>what is a container?
A container is basically the format for storing the encoded streams, which decides the extension of the file. Examples are MPEG-4 (.mp4), WebM (.webm), and Matroska (.mkv). Please note that the container is not the codec! Containers can hold different codecs, for example I can have a .mp4 file (MPEG-4 container) with H264 or VP9 video, similarly AAC or Opus audio. You can mix and match codecs as long as the container supports them. For example WebM does not support AAC audio, but supports Vorbis audio unlike MPEG-4... Another thing to note is that you can change the container without re-encoding the streams within, for example I can change a VP9 + Opus video from .webm to .mp4 in a second without the streams being affected.
>which container should I use?
The absolute best container is Matroska, it supports virtually any combo of codecs you throw at it, and also supports embedding a subtitles file. Its best feature however is that if you're recording and your PC / game / recording program crashes, the video file is not corrupted and can be played normally... Its only weakness is that it's not supported on the web, so if you have an .mkv file change its container to .mp4 or .webm (refer to the previous point) or re-encode.

All of these are free and multi-platform.
Probably the only real choice for recording and streaming game footage. Easy to use but boasts advanced features for users who know how to leverage them.
In my opinion the best video editor. Stable, easy to use, and has great features like proxy editing... I don't recommend Kdenlive because it's very unstable on windows (from my experience) and sometimes produces corrupted output, but give it a try if Shotcut somehow isn't working for you.
The swiss army knife of video tools, and the basis for all the programs mentioned above. Very powerful but a pain to use since it has no GUI. It's mostly used as a converter but it can also record and stream your screen... Configuring it for recording/streaming differs based on your OS, and I haven't tested if it can capture (fullscreen) game footage.
>Blender video editor
Haven't tried it. A bit of a niche choice since only Blender artists use it as far as I'm aware, but seems to be very powerful thanks to leveraging Blender's node system.

You can skip to the ffmpeg section in the next post if you're not particularly concerned with the quality or file size of your video.
There are 2 compression types used by codecs:
  1. Lossy; reduces file size by losing quality. Produces smaller files perfect for streaming and the web, but at lower quality.
  2. Lossless; reduces file size without losing quality. Produces full quality files perfect for video production, but at larger file size.
Some video codecs like H264 and VP9 support both compression types. To control how lossy the result will be, specify the CRF (constant rate factor) between 1 (barely lossy) and 63 (very lossy), but ideally your range will be between 17 and 30. Lossless mode is activated by specifying a CRF of 0.
That's how fast you want the encoding process to be. Note that the slower the speed, the better the compression, but that is subject to the law of diminishing returns.
>color space
Basically how color information is stored. There are many color spaces in existence but only 2 are most commonly used:
  1. YUV; most used, JPEG-like, general purpose but perfect for camera footage.
  2. RGB; least used, the same color space as your display, perfect for screen capture.
Note that YUV has 3 variants; yuv420p, yuv422p, and yuv444p. The first is the "default", the most widely supported, the smallest and the crappiest looking, but it should be great for most use cases. The second is less supported, larger, but better looking. The third is also less supported, the largest, but the best looking, at the right quality it could look almost identical to RGB, which is great because RGB has poor support on the web... For lossless encoding, make sure you are targeting the same color space as your source, or you'll end up with very different colors.

Use cases
Having learned all these advanced settings, let's see when we can use them.
>pixel-perfect recording
Let's say you're recording your screen playing a game with rich colors and fine details, so you want to capture all that in a pixel-perfect manner at a smooth framerate, without caring for file size. In this case you can use lossless compression with crf=0, ultrafast speed, and RGB color space.
>everyday recording/streaming
You're not too concerned with quality but want smooth framerate and smallest file size. In this case you can use lossy compression with crf=30, ultrafast speed, and yuv420p color space.
>exporting a production from shotcut
You made a professional video or a short film and want to export it with good quality at the lowest file size possible, you don't mind waiting. In this case you can use lossy compression with crf=23, veryslow speed, and some variant of YUV (depending on your colors).

ffmpeg magic
Note that the ordering of options matters!
>convert a video INPUT to OUTPUT.WEBM
ffmpeg -i INPUT OUTPUT.WEBMThe file INPUT here represents any video file, having any codecs, in any container. In this example the output is in the webm container, but since I didn't specify the codecs for re-encoding ffmpeg will choose them for me. The resulting codecs will be VP9 + Opus.
>change a video's container from mp4 to webm
ffmpeg -i INPUT.MP4 -c:v copy -c:a copy OUTPUT.WEBMThe difference between this and the previous example is that here we are not re-encoding, we are simply changing the container. This is very fast and doesn't lose quality unlike when re-encoding (unless re-encoding losslessly).
>scale a video to the resolution 640x480
ffmpeg -i INPUT.MP4 -vf scale=640:480 OUTPUT.MP4This example is similar to the previous ones but with scaling to 640x480.
>trim a video roughly from 01:39:55 to 01:42:10
possible language: css, relevance: 8
ffmpeg -i INPUT.MP4 -ss 01:39:55 -to 01:42:10 -c:v copy -c:a copy OUTPUT.MP4Notice how I added copy in both -c:v and -c:a? This means copy the video and audio stream respectively without re-encoding. Be warned that trimming without re-encoding is inaccurate, the reason for this is hard to explain, but the conclusion is if you want accurate trimming with exact timestamps then you have to re-encode. Note that you will be losing quality with every re-encode (unless re-encoding losslessly).
>trim a video roughly from 01:39:55 to 5 seconds later
possible language: css, relevance: 8
ffmpeg -i INPUT.MP4 -ss 01:39:55 -t 00:00:05 -c:v copy -c:a copy OUTPUT.MP4Same warning from the previous example applies here.
>take one image and one song and make a video
ffmpeg -loop 1 -i IMAGE.PNG -i SONG.FLAC -c:v libx264 -g 250 -c:a aac -shortest OUTPUT.MP4In this example I'm taking an image and looping it as frames for the video stream, since I'm not specifying a framerate 25 will be chosen automatically. The codec options here are -c:v libx264 which is the name of ffmpeg's H264 encoder, -c:a aac which is the name of ffmpeg's AAC encoder. If your song is already encoded as AAC/Opus you can just use -c:a copy. Also there's -g 250 which stands for GOP (group of pictures), this very roughly means take the 1st frame, and store the information of the following 250 frames compared to it, then repeat for the 251st frame and so on... This process causes better compression as there's too much redundant information in our frames, however it will lower the number of seeking points in the resulting video.
>convert a video losslessly in RGB color space
ffmpeg -i INPUT.MP4 -c:v libx264rgb -pix_fmt gbrp -crf 0 -c:a copy OUTPUT.MP4For H264 in RGB we need a different encoder than the one we used before, it's called libx264rgb. The -crf 0 means full quality, and the -pix_fmt gbrp forces RGB color space, which is named GBRP (green blue red planar) in H264. If the source is already RGB, you can omit -pix_fmt gbrp. If you want encoding in realtime, add -preset ultrafast after -crf 0 (or before, as long as it's after -c:v libx264rgb).
ffmpeg -i INPUT.MP4 -c:v libvpx-vp9 -pix_fmt gbrp -lossless 1 -c:a copy OUTPUT.MP4Same thing but for the VP9 codec. Note that VP9 supports -crf 0, however it supports a much handier option called lossless which can be either 1 (true) or 0 (false). If you want encoding in realtime, add -deadline realtime after -lossless 1 (or before, as long as it's after -c:v libvpx-vp9).

Always keep footage organized 

Always make clips in a preview/source window. Avoid cutting in the timeline as much as possible.

Vegas is absolute dogshit outside of some nifty audio syncing tools it has. The lack of control over encoding settings os proof of why it's the entry level editor for baby's first youtube video. Premiere, while having a host of issies, is for pros. Even Davinci Resolve is more stable than Vegass.

I am pleased to say that I was mostly wrong, and using the command line is, in many way, far easier than using a GUI, especially with how stupidly many GUIs are designed these days.

So I was thinking of covering ffmpeg screen recording next, anything in particular you guys want me to add?

>triming is inaccurate in FFmpeg ?
It's only inaccurate if you're not re-encoding. By default ffmpeg re-encodes any stream that goes through it, unless you specify the copy option like in my example.
One good use case of trimming without re-encoding is when you have a very long video, and you're just interested in a small portion that you'll be processing later, so you roughly trim it out without losing quality to have a more manageable source to work with.

>graphical glitches
No idea, but if they're not appearing in the final render then you have nothing to worry about. Otherwise send adobe a bug report.

I don't think so. You can specify a fixed region of your screen by typing numbers, but that's about it... I could be wrong though, I'm still researching the whole thing.
There seems to be a way to route OBS' output through ffmpeg directly, with command line options and all, so that could be very interesting.

Then there's no use for this thread. 
>Premiere isn't that fucking hard
Then use it
I'm not an ffmpeg expert, but I found a StackExchange answer that somewhat solves the problem of ffmpeg trimming video files inaccurately.
ffmpeg -t [timestamp 2] -i input.mp4 -ss [timestamp 1] output.mp4- Generates a clip from input.mp4 that begins at timestamp 1 and lasts until timestamp 2.
- The clip will not have broken keyframes or tracking, and it will not start/end early.
- The order of the timestamps is intentionally backwards.  This works because the -ss timestamp,
  when passed to the output, makes ffmpeg keep the preceding time in memory.  Then ffmpeg 
  uses the timestamp in -t to know when to stop.
- If -ss is passed to the input, ffmpeg reads until that point, then forgets preceding data, 
  which can lead to broken output.

I don't exactly understand why it works, but try it out with any small video clip you have and it'll do wonders.  It's slower when using longer clips because it needs to track through the entire video file, but I was working with a 5-hour video a couple weeks ago and even that didn't take more than 10 minutes to trim.  You can also convert a timestamp to a number of seconds and pass decimal numbers if you want higher accuracy.

There might be a better way to do it, but this works well for me.  The only problem is that putting the ending timestamp first and the beginning timestamp second is a total mindfuck almost every time I type the command without thinking clearly.
What are you niggers even on about? Kdenlive runs perfectly fine on my Winblows installation.

>can you specify which window to record and does it record the borders?
You can, no borders. Used it for FE gamenight. Used ffmpeg to split and join clips too. mpv+scripts to feed ffmpeg timestamps.
ffmpeg -f dshow -i audio="Stereo Mix (2- Realtek High Def" -f gdigrab -framerate 59.73 -i title=ST fe8_gamenight.mkvWhere -i title=ST is the window title. Without it it defaults to fullscreen, not sure how well gdigrab/x11grab would work with proper fullscreen, windowed fullscreen should be fine.
Should probably use nvenc or a raw codec for fullscreen recording though -crf 0 might also  work
Also used ffmpeg for transcoding to vp8/vp9 but its pretty shit unless you have raw/lossless source and they are both too slow for realtime encoding.

If you have some talent and don't mind shilling yourself on reddit and social media you can build an audience pretty easy. You can't just be a drunk guy playing vidya and get any where. I'm glad I ditched that project as the niche I got algorithmed hard so now that entire niche is clickbait, MY GIRLFRIEND DOES X and channels which literally post 1 hour off topic videos supporting antifa and BLM shit. 

I find the free speech platforms are all owned by sketchy jews as well.
Fair point, I for myself just don't really mind it and post on some of the sites anyway, after all it's kind of a chicken and egg problem with attracting any group that isn't politispergs.

Streamable deletes your videos after three months unless you play up and I don't even see a browsing interface, so I'm guessing there is none to speak of, you'll have to share your video links manually on other sites.
Bitchute started out alright, but the file upload speed is atrocious, some videos load for almost an entire minute and the streaming feature they've been promising for months still isn't implemented. And it's flooded with political edgemeister discussion.
LBRY.TV is absolute garbage with terrible loading times, broken UI and you have to suck their dicks and pay money for brownie points and disney bucks. You can't even upload a video without spending the disney bucks. Oh you want to earn more? Give us your phone number and other personal details. You can also pay up.

Bitchute doesn't technically censor things, but it does. If you're in a country where holocaust denial is illegal it will hide the video from you while leaving it up for countries it's legal in. So it's technically not censoring anything on mass just on a national level. It's the same bullshit Gab pulled where it would selectively censor and claim it was free speech.

We're all in the same board. Alt tech is a bad joke at best and a honey pot at worst.

Most of them just seem like game play only playthroughs so it's not like anon is outputting 55 minute voiced high effort content. I also thinking churning out raw game play footage that no one is going to realistically watch for more than a few minutes is severely damaging to your jewtube algorithm lottery, since the algorithm rewards engagement. High effort 5-10 minute content that keeps the maximum number of people engaged for the longest period of time rewards your in the algorithm, or at least this is my understanding of it based on what I've heard over the years.

This is why a lot of jewtubers tend to have multiple channels for different calibers of content, so they don't rape their main channels algorithm by producing content their main audience isn't likely to click on or engage with.

If OP stuck to this >>20216 style of content and didn't bog down his channel with 56 minute's of mute game play it might do well. The editing and pace is fashionable and he knows how to speak well enough. Bitchute might also be an option, but I honestly have no idea how good that sites content discoverability is and it's kind of just a shit heap of archives and Q boomer political ramblings.

It gets really sad when you find channels where desperate lonely people are talking to themselves for 20 minutes and the videos all have 0 views. But that doesn't appear to be the case here. Anon has 0 views because aint no one watching 55 minutes of part 3 of the mummy demastered playthrough. He needs to have an epic reddit 6 minute compilation of the most lulz worthy random epic mummy moments with autistic screeching and overreacting to random shit to get any views with that footage. And he could put an anime mummy in the thumbnail with mummy titties and title it "Animummy's gone right".
>This is why a lot of jewtubers tend to have multiple channels for different calibers of content, so they don't rape their main channels algorithm by producing content their main audience isn't likely to click on or engage with.
Well put. It's definitely not too late for >>20198 to try and get hooked into the algorithm. He should private all of his 0 view low effort videos and try to piggy back off of other popular jewtubers that appeal to the same circles you're trying to appeal to, which are imageboard types. Literally everyone who's getting clicks does it and it works extremely well. For example, one of the fastest growing jewtubers at the moment, Dream, privated any video of his that didn't get over 700k-800k or so views early on, doubled down on concepts that worked, all while regularly making videos on bigger jewtubers, like pewdiepie, that appeal to his demographic.
>Dream, and other popular jewtubers are fags
This stuff works. There's a reason why Dream has something like 12 million subs in like under a year or two. Besides, Setthh does the same shit just less aggressively. Review his stuff WAY more closely down to the little things.

Additionally, >>20198 needs to change his avatar, thumbnail, and title of his video. His avatar just scream's "I love commenting on jewtube videos with 900 views". Make a better picture or (((buy))) a stock image. The thumbnail and title are probably more important than the actual video at least when it comes to hooking people in and both of yours are extremely bland right now. Make both provocative, eye catching, and readable. Considering making multiple thumbnails for each video and switch them out occasionally to see which one's pull more views. Mr. Beast started doing this a few months ago so it's reasonable to assume it's an effective strategy at the moment.

On the video itself, it's pretty fun. Few nitpicks. You should work on your voice acting, possibly get a better mic, and most importantly fix your audio. Your audio in this video is way lower than it should be and doesn't hit highs and lows that feel good on the ear. The joke at 1:36 doesn't land very well imo but that's just me. The editing after 2:00 gets a little lazy when it was previously very strong, especially on that perks section. The joke at 2:40 should have held on the typing with no music or speaking for several more seconds. The video feels all over the place with poor pacing at times. For example, the bit at 3:03 happens after you talk about what you get when you beat the game while never talking about any other enemies. How am I supposed to know they're truly a pain when I have zero frame of reference. The part from 3:16 - 3:29 was kinda cringe. You should look at how other jewtubers handle segments like that or frame it completely differently. In short, the video had a very strong start but felt like it didn't go anywhere in the middle of it.

Not really interested in that field, not yet anyway. Don't know if I'd be able to keep myself and not sell out to the almighty algorithm. Feels dirty.
>strong start, didn't go anywhere in the middle of it
Ironic, considering I wrote the script first instead of doing it by ear like I did with Dead Cells. I've been really low on energy this past week, so I probably did half-ass the last half of production. I can do better.
Then again, I think this is a positive. I let the video "breathe" instead of being a tryhard and packing every frame with a dozen injokes. 
So the main takeaway is:
>make sure you cover all the basics when writing the script
>timestamp your recordings
>keep the quality and pace consistent throughout the video
>SHOW when you TELL
>make a schedule and stick to it and drink high energy drinks instead of beer when editing

Before anything, think about what kind of video you want to make first. Do you want to be funny, informative, or some kind of blend of the two? For example, while their audiences do have some overlap, a lot of the people watching Sseth aren't going to like someone like Ross Scott of Game Dungeon due to the latter's more detail and long form content. But tuen again, there are people out there that will watch anything, so do whatever you feel comfortable with.

You have my respect anon. Make the videos you wanna make and they will get their dedicated audience, no matter how small. Trying to become an e-celeb, especially in a market saturated by them, is a fool's errand.
>silent playthroughs
I'm personally a big fan of those. Sometimes I'm stuck in a game and looking for a certain clue, and it's easiest to find it in a quiet no-bullshit video. Sometimes I'm sorting a music rip of a game and I need to quickly find which track played in which level, impossible to do that through a video with commentary...etc.
Just my 2c.

By the way for lazy niggers who still want a command line interface https://github.com/Kagami/webm.py is a python wrapper around ffmpeg that lets you quickly make webms to a certain size or loop a single frame for a music webm. Obviously you'll get better quality and control doing it manually with ffmpeg and you should do so for anything you want to archive but if you just want to do a lazy upload to a thread it can help I've used it for gamenight OC, for example, when I just want to get back to playing quickly. The cropping with MPV is also helpful. Make sure to use -h and -hi to see the proper documentation. It can also be a useful stepping stone on the way to learning proper ffmpeg usage since it basically just takes a subset of ffmpeg's commands.

You should also install youtube-dl it needs ffmpeg installed as well for downloading videos from pretty much any side and learn to use -F to specify which audio and video tracks to combine for posting things instead of embedding them.

Technically lowering the resolution would not inherently make it smaller. Lower bitrate makes it smaller but lower bitrates look horrible at higher resolutions. A larger concern is the filesize issues with 30fps vs 60fps.

Upload speed is about the same as current youtube, but processing takes about as much as early youtube. I uploaded these on Sunday evening and they were put in a queue, around 55th in line. I don't know how long it took exactly, but they were done when I checked up on them in the morning. They're both locked to 480p or something, definitely not original quality, I've only seen one video on the entire site with an HD option. 
Uploading itself is pretty simple, just one window with like 5 things to edit and that's it.
There's also an upload limit, here's what it says in the FAQ:

Q: How long can my video be?
A: The time limit is currently set to 15 minutes for regular users and 30 minutes for partners! 

Q: Is there a limit to how much I can upload?
A: The size limit is 2GB per video. We also have an 8 video a day limit so you can only upload 8 videos to VidLii per day. 

Q: What video file formats can I upload?
A: VidLii accepts video files from most digital cameras and from cell phones in the .flv, .mp4, .wmv, .avi, .mov, .m4v, .mpg, .mpeg, .webm, .mov and .3gp file formats. 

Uploading webm related took less than 30 seconds and processing barely even took place, so it may be dependent on how busy the servers are, since it's roughly the same length  as my actual videos.

Very detailed report, thank you anon!
I can see that custom thumbnails are allowed, which is pretty cool considering jewtube asks for your phone number before unlocking that feature... The "partners" page is a bit disappointing though, especially after reading the 16:9 clause. Sure this is a "retro" website so a restriction on video dimensions is reasonable, but a restriction on aspect ratio is not. Maybe I'll message them about that.

Not only did the image quality suffer and the framerate cap at 30, the sound also seems to have gotten slightly worse, like it's been put through a low pass filter or something severely adding to the aesthetic

I downloaded the video back from vidlii to further analyze it. Framerate is capped exactly at 30, resolution down to 360p, video bitrate lowered to 130 kbps, and audio bitrate lowered all the way down to 56 kbps which explains a lot. Normally I would say this compression is a little too much, but then again most videos online in 2005 were 240p WMVs having similar quality.
In case anyone is wondering, I got these stats through ffprobe which is a companion program bundled with ffmpeg.

Honestly don't know, but the other anon who answered seems to have the answer. I don't commonly make music webms nowadays since you can often just upload audio files directly anyway and if there was a format issue I'd probably just convert the audio track to a different audio type which you'll almost certainly be doing when making it into a webm anyway and upload that.

>Still, other theories float around the academic circles as to what the mysterious ZZZ stands for. One of these is the Sleeper Cult. These fascists believe in the eternal slumber of their fallen idol, Adolf Hitler (stupid ass picture of hitler or something, I'd use Trump again, but I already used that joke. Maybe a variation of "Literally Hitler" meme or something).
>The idea of a cryogenically frozen or otherwise magically suspended Hitler is a chilling (carlos) concept to say the least.

Thanks for coming over, everybody, this was a fun stream.
Hope that one anon figures out his PS3.
Since I am basically sperging over the requisite parameters I need to input for AV1 to compress a 4K video into a 32MB file limit, since nobody out there has sufficient documentation, does anybody have any experience with x265? I imagine that would be faster but I don't know where to look first for documentation regarding squeezing the compression for everything it can get.

Replies: >>28931 >>28997
Shotcut or Kdenlive or StaxRip
x265 support on the web is not that good, just use VP9. Also you're not seriously trying to fit 4K video into 32MBs, right? At least downscale to 720p or less... The ffmpeg website has encoding guides for both VP9 and AV1, but remember that AV1 is MAD SLOW.
Read below.

Ffmpeg, check the commands earlier in the thread here >>16828
If you don't want to re-encode (re-encoding takes more time and produces less quality) then copy the command as it is, but the trimming won't be accurate. If you're okay with re-encoding and want accurate trimming, omit -c:v copy -c:a copy . Shotcut is a good alternative if you want a GUI but it always re-encodes.

(239.1KB, 3840x2160, 00:04)
(911KB, 3840x2160, 00:04)
So in my adventures experimenting with ultralow-bitrate VP9 encodes I've been consistently frustrated with how bad the VP9 encoding is at min-maxing in terms of processing a long video. At the beginning in CQ/VBR mode it will do low-bandwidth encoding perfectly fine and quickly but without fail after a few minutes it will start shooting the bitrate up, even when the frames it is processing aren't that complex, to obscene heights.

I've been challenging myself to try to compress a 17-minute long 4K60FPS video of an anime-style PSP game (Valkyria Chronicles III, if you're curious, size 1.71GB) into this site's size limit with a target average of 191k for the video bitrate, but the VP9 encoding always fucks up in some way or another, even when I turn on the more obscure temporal compression options like arnr-maxframes.

The video is split up into four segments, two of them being VN cutscenes with relatively simple VN animations and transitions and the last one being an anime FMV blown up from the original 480x272 resolution. I would have thought the VN segments would lend themselves to being compressed easily by the kf_max_dist/GOP function, but as it turns out the Canvas engine overlays a sketchy filter over the VN segments, which I hypothesize is causing the VP9 encoding algorithm to render what would technically be duplicate frames with little motion as "unique" ones. I don't know if VP9 accounts for compressing frame loops that are repeated, so if anybody has any advice I would appreciate it.

I don't know if I should split up the segments and stitch them together to get around VP9's terrible automatic allocation. The lowest bitrate I can get for the VN segments to look good is ~600k  but I want to constrain VP9 so it gets as much quality out of a low bitrate.

<just downsample and rescale it to 272p
That would defeat the whole purpose of the exercise if I just rescale it to native PSP resolution, I would be better off just getting a native-scale capture.

Webms related are my sample renders fiddling with the command line. First one bizarrely enough is no different than if I would have specified -crf 63. Second one is 4x the filesize but actualy looks good, although it actually overshoots the upper bound bitrate parameter set by 25% for some reason. First one used -cpu-used 1, second one -cpu-used 3, both took about 20 minutes to render with my CPU being about 50% slower than an i5-8400. My command line also gives me conflicting bitrate data for each frame for some reason, telling me each one is the lower bitrate than the final result.

Again, if anybody has any experience compressing VN footage with VP9 I would appreciate it. VP9 is oft hyped up for compressing anime-style footage at incredibly low bitrates but it seems like it's either an overblown reputation or I'm not using the right settings. Time is not a factor.
