[Libav-user] Problem with using libavcodec with AV_CODEC_ID_H264

No I got the link. I guess that preset will most likely remove B frames as they have latency.

For the P-frames, I do want them to get better compression, just not the B frames. Does the zerolatency preset remove all P frames?

You probably missed the link yesterday:

There is "preset" and "tune" options in ffmpeg, you can set them that way:

#include "opt.h"

av_opt_set(codecContex->priv_data, "preset", "ultrafast", 0); av_opt_set(codecContex->priv_data, "tune", "zerolatency", 0);

where codecContex is AVCodecContext.

For other x264 options that isn't presented in ffmpeg you could use "x264opts" option:

av_opt_set(codecContex->priv_data, "x264opts", "no-mbtree:sliced-threads:sync-lookahead=0", 0);

Regarding P-frames, I thought you wanted to remove them, too.
