Thank you for your instructive post. Had read about profiles, but not about levels…
As far as I understand, I should set these extra options to make placebo L4.1 compliant:
I have tried this, and it works now with DXVA2 enabled.
But still, I don’t understand why there is no simple option like “--x264-level” as there is “--x264-profile”. Basically, what I need, and probably many users also, is to select a profile and level, and select the highest preset (i.e. placebo) which gives me the best quality given a certain bitrate.
EDIT: I think --encopts "level=4.1:vbv-bufsize=78125:vbv-maxrate=62500" would also work.
EDIT2: It gives a warning that ref is set to 16.
