View Concat image with video #ffmpeg
# Adds 3-sec fading out title image before video.
# What's going on here: We get title.png image, loop it for 3 sec video, create 3 sec silence, get video.mp4 (framerate 25). Next, we add fade out filter on looped image video, after that we concat our image video, audio silence and main video into one. Easy peasy.

FFmpeg and libav's playbook: Advanced encoding options with hardware-based acceleration, NVIDIA's NVENC and Intel's VAAPI-based encoder.

Hello guys,

Continuing from this guide to building ffmpeg and libav with NVENC and VAAPI enabled, this snippet will cover advanced options that you can use with ffmpeg and libav on both NVENC and VAAPI hardware-based encoders.

For ffmpeg:

This gist shows you how to encode specifically to HEVC with ffmpeg's NVENC on supported hardware, with a two-pass profile and optional CUVID-based hardware-accelerated decoding.

Encoding high-quality HEVC content with FFmpeg - based NVENC encoder on supported hardware:

If you've built ffmpeg as instructed here on Linux and the ffmpeg binary is in your path, you can do fast HEVC encodes as shown below, using NVIDIA's NPP's libraries to vastly speed up the process.

Now, to do a simple NVENC encode in 1080p, (that will even work for Maxwell Gen 2 (GM200x) series), start with:

ffmpeg  -i <inputfile>  \
-filter:v hwupload_cuda,scale_npp=w=1920:h=1080:format=nv12:interp_algo=lanczos,hwdownload \
-c:v hevc_nvenc -profile main -preset slow -rc vbr_hq \
