Description

ex:
./ffmpeg -i trailer_720p.20.flv -b 56000 -vf scale=176:144 -level 8 -vcodec mpeg4 -ab 24000 -ar 22050 -ac 1 -profile aac_low -acodec libfaac -f mp4 -y /tmp/test.mp4

will generate a mp4 file with the video codec profile/level to be 24

output from mp4info:
Track Type Info
1 video MPEG-4 Unknown Profile(24), 211.085 secs, 63 kbps, 176x144 @ 23.976123 fps
2 audio MPEG-4 AAC LC, 211.162 secs, 24 kbps, 22050 Hz

if you remove the profile option from the command line, output of mp4info
Track Type Info
1 video MPEG-4 Simple @ L0, 211.085 secs, 63 kbps, 176x144 @ 23.976123 fps
2 audio MPEG-4 AAC LC, 211.162 secs, 24 kbps, 22050 Hz

So, it seems that -profile aac_low does set the profile of the video encoder context to be 1 as well as the audio encoder context.

The exact output of the command line with -profile aac_low
./ffmpeg -i trailer_720p.20.flv -b 56000 -vf scale=176:144 -level 8 -vcodec mpeg4 -ab 24000 -ar 22050 -ac 1 -profile aac_low -acodec libfaac -f mp4 -y /tmp/test.mp4

  • Reproduced by developer set

The correct way to do this now is to use -profile:a aac_low
i need to think about what to do about -profile aac_low

comment:2 Changed 5 years ago by michael

Also for old as well as current ffmpeg -aprofile aac_low could be used to achive this.
