I've got video working perfectly along with ffmpeg but the quality of the video on the flv encode is a bit low for our use. Is there a way to up the bitrate of the transcode into flv, I saw variables for audio but not the video.
Thanks for looking into this. The FLV features of DOM are in a very nascent state and I right now my focus is just to get it working reliably on several different installs and hopefully make its way into some production sites. It seems to be doing well so far.
I will definitely be adding a lot more features to it as I learn more about FFMPEG. There are hundreds of flags you can throw at the video conversion, including one for quality, that takes a value of 0 to 30. You might want to read the docs on that on the ffmpeg website. Hack the core code and see if it makes a difference for you and get back to me on what you find. If it looks good, I'll have you revert your changes and check it in to the svn channel.

Yea I couldn't see the single 0-30 quality setting in the ffmpeg documentation but I have achieved what I wanted by using -sameq which sets it to the same quality as the upload, I will tinker with it a bit more down the line. The changes I have made are the addition of the following to FLV.php I figured I would set it up so that I could pass any arguments I liked into the encode so that it would be easy to use the heaps of different encoding options.
