That may be so. But do take a look at the contributions in the Wiki as

There are guides there for quite a lot of problems.

I'd like to recommend some other guides, but since I never use them, I
don't know if they're appropriate for you. I quickly looked for some,
and didn't find them to be very good. But the official docs can be
improved, with good feddback!

If you have a particular issue which "should work, but didn't", you are
welcome to post it on this list. You should learn the basics of ffmpeg
command lines first though, obviously.

But I seriously ask you not to write "it did not work", but give a good
description of what you are trying to achieve, what you attempted
(incl. the ffmpeg command line), what the result was (incl, ffmpeg's
complete console output and other descriptions of why you think it was
wrong), and what you actually expected.

That's what we're here for!
