The above filter already does this.

Not sure what you mean. If you don't want to re-encode the audio you
can copy the stream.

-acodec copy

-vcodec libx264 -profile:v baseline -pix_fmt yuv420p

I don't know what the maximum bitrates for the iPhone 3 are. But you
can specify maximum and minimum bitrates as described here:

At the end of the filter chain you can use the split filter to create
two outputs.



-filter_complex "scale=min(iw\,1024):-2,split=2[one][two]" -map
"[one]" one.flv -map "[two]" two.flv

For each output you can specify the encoding options after the -map
option. Eg -vcodec libx264 -profile:v baseline etc ...

Hopefully that helps.
