This is a fast x264 video codec which give good results up to a max resolution of 1280x720 (HD).
- Set your projects profile
- When rendering decide if you want interlaced video to be converted to progressive = use the 'Force Progressive' setting.
- optional you can decide if you want to have a different output size.
I have chosen the mp2 codec because it can easy be used on all kind of devices as well. Another reason is that faac is not always available in ffmpeg. I also tested ac3 but some players crashed when testing (kaffeine).
This profile uses the video input frame-rate and video aspect-ratio and project-size also for the output video. You can rescale the video. You do not have to set audio and video bit-rate.
Created and tested with kdenlive 0.9.2 on openSUSE 12.1 64bit. Players: vlc, kaffeine, mplayer, xine, xbmc.
