In this step-by-step tutorial, we show you how to convert a video with FFmpeg to the 4:2:0 color profile. This tutorial explains how to use FFmpeg to change the color profile of a video and improve its quality.
This tutorial is suitable for users who want to optimize their videos and have basic knowledge of using FFmpeg. You will learn how to change the color profile of a video with FFmpeg and how to ensure that the video is exported in the desired quality.
Install FFmpeg (if not already installed):
sudo apt-get install ffmpeg
brew install ffmpeg
Open a command prompt or terminal and navigate to the folder containing the video you want to convert.
Enter the following command to convert the video to the 4:2:0 color profile:
ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -c:v libx264 -pix_fmt yuv420p output.mp4
In this command, the -i option is used to specify the input video, the -c:v option is used to set the video codec (in this case libx264), and the -pix_fmt option is used to set the color profile (in this case yuv420p, which represents the 4:2:0 color profile). The output video will be saved as output.mp4.
