I want to convert my video's for YouTube. At the moment I am using:
    ffmpeg -i input.MOV -ar 22050 -acodec libmp3lame -ab 32k -r 25 -vcodec flv -s vga -qscale 2.5 output.flv

This seems to work, but still gives quit big files. 35 MB for 1:48.
Input file is 89 MB.

So I was wondering: is there a better way?
