#7973 new defect

Provide info about default qualitiy for each codec

Analyzed by developer: no


Summary of the bug:
The default value for option -q is missing, at least for encoder=libx264.
How to reproduce:

From the output of using this encoder, I can see, it seems to be 28.0, but this is nowhere documented.

IMHO on it should be possible to easily find for each codec:

  1. the default quality
  2. which option to use to change it (here -q)

Additionally ffmpeg -h encoder=blafoo should give this info.
