To elaborate, you can try various scaling algorithms using the "flags"
option in the scale filter.


Alternatively, you can try the zscale filter. I haven't yet compared its
speed to scale however. You will need z.lib and re-compile ffmpeg with
--enable-libzimg to support this filter.


How do you know scaling is the culprit? Why are you re-encoding in the
first place?

I wouldn't use mpeg4. libx264 will provide a better quality per bit.
Ensure that your linked x264 isn't ancient.

Finally, you're encoding with an ARM processor on a phone. I'm not an
ARM expert, but I wouldn't expect much.
