Two-pass x264 (very high-quality) outdated

The second command in the Two-pass x264 section doesn't work anymore. I think think ffmpeg deprecated/removed encoders and changed some options. --Dmp1ce (talk) 23:08, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

Fixed. -- Lonaowna (talk) 11:14, 25 June 2018 (UTC)

Hardsubbing.

The example command line in the section for hardsubbing (2.11.2) is incorrect. Since burning the subs into the video stream requires re-encoding the video, the copy "codec" is not allowed. You must specify a video codec and parameters. —This unsigned comment is by Jtgd (talk) 07:25, 27 October 2017 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

I've removed the codec specifier so the codec will be automatically selected. -- Lonaowna (talk) 11:32, 25 June 2018 (UTC)

ffserver removed

In the latest version of ffmpeg, ffserver has been removed. —This unsigned comment is by Simonmysun (talk) 19:09, 21 June 2018 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Thanks, noted. Know of any good replacements/alternatives? Lonaowna (talk) 10:13, 25 June 2018 (UTC)
I've just removed the entire section as upstream is pretty negative about it:

After thorough deliberation, we're announcing that we're about to drop the ffserver program from the project starting with the next release. ffserver has been a problematic program to maintain due to its use of internal APIs, which complicated the recent cleanups to the libavformat library, and block further cleanups and improvements which are desired by API users and will be easier to maintain. Furthermore the program has been hard for users to deploy and run due to reliability issues, lack of knowledgable people to help and confusing configuration file syntax. Current users and members of the community are invited to write a replacement program to fill the same niche that ffserver did using the new APIs and to contact us so we may point users to test and contribute to its development.

Thank you for editing. I also don't know what are the alternatives. For my requirement(cast some music in LAN), I am using a module in `pactl` from pulse audio. For casting video, I think there are various but not so convenient solutions. Maybe there will be a capable alternative soon. Simonmysun (talk) 21:56, 7 July 2018 (UTC)
