Transcode is a fantastic tool for video transcoding, but it has many options and video transcoding and editing itself is not a trivial task.

Here you can find a collection of usage examples.

Command line in principle

This is a basic command line for most uses
 transcode -i sourcevideo -p sourceaudio -x vmod[,amod] \
           -o destvideo                  -y vmod[,amod] \
           -J filter ...
The -i option specifies the filename of the source video. If the video file contains no audio stream, it can be read from a separate file using the -p option. The output file name is given with the -o option.

The -x option sets the video[,audio] import modules. If omitted, transcode will probe for appropriate import modules. The same aplies for the -y option, but for export modules and if omitted, transcode will encode to the null module.

There are many other command line options, such as the -J option for filter plugins.

Basic examples

Here are some basic examples, expecially those who explain the usage of the transcode command line options.
