What is it?

This is basically a quick reference for myself, but I thought it could be useful to someone searching certain ffmpeg commands as well. Feel free to improve

Webm to MP4

Converting a single file

ffmpeg -fflags +genpts -i input.webm -r 60 output.mp4

Replace -r 60 with desired frames per second

Converting a directory full of webm to mp4

for i in *.webm;do ffmpeg -fflags +genpts -i "$i" -r 60 "${i%.*}.mp4" ;done

replace -r 60 with appropriate frames per second

MOV to MP4

ffmpeg -i input.MOV -vcodec h264 -acodec mp2 output.mp4
