The format -pix_fmt yuv420p was done when I screen recorded into MKV. I have that code if you need. Sorry for the misinformation above. It's been a while since I've done that.
I pulled my old bash files that I had kept and I found one here:ffmpeg -i /home/john/Parenthood\ These\ Are\ The\ Times\ We\ Live\ In.mkv -acodec libfdk_aac -b:a 128k -vcodec libx264 -preset slow -crf 22 -threads 0 /home/john/Parenthood\ These\ Are\ The\ Times\ We\ Live\ In.mp4You can try that. I don't remember if that was one that worked but it was in there and do remember looking at the video and accepting it because there was a whole string of others that I had converted in the bash file with same coding but different titles.On another note, I found too, that the speed of my computer was my biggest hindrance. Once I moved up to an i5 processor, things improved greatly.Good Luck
I don't. What I do remember is, converting it with handbrake was the ticket. I ran into other issues with the .mp4 being recognized and think I even tried injecting the yuv_402 option but still failed. Handbrake will be your best bet. Google and you should get the proper link.
