FFMPEG Command to Change Video Bitrate Using -vf scale Filter in Windows 10 Full Tutorial For Beginners



Here you go:

ffmpeg -i input_video.mp4 -vf "scale=1200:600" -b:v 10M output_video.mp4

There were two mistakes here:

  • -v:b: the bitrate codec(b) and the stream selector(v for video) were swapped
  • -vf scale: the filter command should be placed between quotes (you can also use the regular scale option instead: -s 1200x600)
