Thanks for sharing! I've used a programm before and the compressed videos always got pixelated, blurry, or blocky. This one works just fine. I've also found an article introducing people how to convert blu ray to MP4. It might be useful for anyone in need.

Commands using Linux with ffmpeg to shrinking big MP4 video file to smaller sizes

  • ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -vcodec h264 -acodec mp2 out.mp4
    • 3.6 Gb to 556 Mb, great quality 🥇
  • ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -s 1280x720 -acodec copy -y output.mp4
    • 3.6 Gb to 62 Mb, quality "good enough"/acceptable 👍
  • ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -vcodec h264 -b:v 1000k -acodec mp3 output.mp4
    • 3.6 Gb to 30 Mb, very shitty quality 💩

Thanks for sharing, really helpful!
