#3666 closed enhancement (invalid)

Enhancement Opus compression_level and qscale

Reported by: artofit Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: avcodec
Version: git-master Keywords: libopus
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: no
Analyzed by developer: no


For the sake of standardisation, would welcome

ffmpeg -i input.wav -c:a libopus -q:a 5 ouput.mkv

instead of currently

ffmpeg -i input.wav -c:a libopus -compression_level 5 ouput.mkv

This already applies to other audio codec such as mp3 or aac.

I don't think mapping comp to the -q flag is a good idea: comp refers to the encoding computational complexity (i.e. encoder speed), not the audio quality. So this like the lame -q flag (which ffmpeg maps to -compression_level) and not the -V lame flag (which ffmpeg maps to -q). So I think the current mapping of comp to -compression_level is correct and consistent with other lossy audio codecs. I believe this issue can be marked as invalid.
