All of my videos are processed through ffmpeg before being added to PMS with the following commands:
ffmpeg -i $file -c:v libx264 -level:v 3.1 -b:v 1000k -minrate 800k -maxrate 1000k -bufsize 1835k -c:a aac -strict -2 $file2
ffmpeg -i $file2 -c:a copy -c:v copy -movflags faststart $file3
And while I hardly ever see transcoding (unless Auto Quality Adjustment kicks in) on every other device, every single video my brother tries to watch on his PS4 is transcoded (see attached image).
Is there a better set of ffmpeg commands to prevent this?
