Yeah so I tried to implement this into my code, it works but some thing
weird happens when I change the value of crf.. So originally I have crf set
at 0, which produces lossless output. But since the output file size is too
big, I wanted to change crf to a higher value, let's say 18. But if I do
that, the output video file generated would be 6KB without any content in
it. Any ideas why/how this happened?
