[FFmpeg-user] -b:v option

Sorry I would have to specify a bit more.

I want to do this in order to generate a DASH content, one of the profiles sould have the original bitrate, and the other ones fixed values. As an example:

ffmpeg -i bunny.mp4 -preset superfast -r 25 -vcodec libx264 -acodec aac -b:a 128k -ac 1 -ar 44100 -map v:0 -b:v:0 source -map v:0 -b:v:1 720000 -map v:0 -b:v:2 360000 -map 0:a? -f dash -segment_time 5000 C:\ComponentsDeployment\CSD_DATA\VCS\DashStreams\9780081d-c864-4420-9669-8a9feb53f4a6\manifest.mpd.

So I would have the fist profile with the original bitrate  -b:v:0 source, the second one with 720kbps and the third one with 360kbps.

On the other one if not posible, what happens if I set this command?

ffmpeg -i bunny.mp4 -preset superfast -r 25 -vcodec libx264 -acodec aac -b:a 128k -ac 1 -ar 44100 -map v:0 -b:v:0 1080000 -map v:0 -b:v:1 720000 -map v:0 -b:v:2 360000 -map 0:a? -f dash -segment_time 5000 C:\ComponentsDeployment\CSD_DATA\VCS\DashStreams\9780081d-c864-4420-9669-8a9feb53f4a6\manifest.mpd

And bunny.mp4 has a bitrate of 795kbps, which bitrate would be displayed in first profile 1080kbps, does make sense or is posible to increase bitrate??

No, technically this would make very little sense.
