Needing some advise for combining Video Filters (movie and scale)
on Aug 30, 2012 at 1:36:49 pm

Hello Creative Cows,

I'm a little bit desperate right now:

I have to convert a bunch of videos for a dumb digital picture frame. After serious scaling issues I've finally came to this (working) command:

ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -vcodec libxvid -vf "scale=720:405,pad=720:540:0:67.5,setdar=4:3" -b:v 5000k -acodec mp3 -ab 128k -ac 2 output.mp4

This command converts a given video perfectly right for the frame. The Computer converting the video is not the fastest and I really need a logo to appear in the output video.

The corresponding command should/would be:

ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -vf "movie=overlay.png [logo]; [in][logo] overlay=14:432 [out]" output.mp4

I've really tried hard merging these two commands, because if I've did the second command all my efforts are neglected. The corresponding video has the false format, the quality is worse (due to reencoding) and my machine is taking double the time.

I'm certain there's a way to do these tasks with one command, could you help me?

Some background:

I'm on a windows machine using this build:

FFmpeg version: 2012-08-27 git-a366bea
libavutil 51. 70.100 / 51. 70.100
libavcodec 54. 54.100 / 54. 54.100
libavformat 54. 25.104 / 54. 25.104
libavdevice 54. 2.100 / 54. 2.100
libavfilter 3. 13.101 / 3. 13.101
libswscale 2. 1.101 / 2. 1.101
libswresample 0. 15.100 / 0. 15.100
libpostproc 52. 0.100 / 52. 0.100

This FFmpeg was configured with:

This build was compiled with these external libraries:

Any help is really appreciated.

Can you post the output from the command?
