noclip posted a topic in LinuxHi there! First of all, I'd like to thank everyone who contributes to this project. It's awesome! I'm having a transcode quality issue with a certain set of files that seems to be related to the value emby chooses for the -maxrate option of the h264 codec. Here's my evidence: I took the ffmpeg transcode command from the (attached) server log and ran it locally (I removed the segment stuff and limited duration with -t, but no changes other than that). Playing the result with a local media player resulted in the same aggressive artifacting I was seeing in my browser. Then, I ran the exact same transcode without "-maxrate 1165053", and boom, no visible artifacts. The bitrate is 2x larger than the original source (not really sure why that's the case), but I run everything over LAN and I have a lot of throughput headroom to spare, so I'd really like to make the trade-off for quality. Is there any way I can affect what emby chooses for maxrate? I've done some poking around and found this thread (https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/36226-transcode-quality-degradation-maxrate/), but not much info in there. Running server ver 126.96.36.199 on Ubuntu. Thank you in advance! Log.txt
