Not really sure in which subforum to put this, so I hope this is right.
I'm looking for a video transcoding service. File format X to Flash VP-6 with a custom bitrate, preferably 2-pass. For a while I have been doing it myself on one of my boxes using ffmpeg but honestly, its a pain to integrate it properly and the video quality is not as good as it should be either. I dont think there are other reasonably priced linux tools to do this properly?
There are some services that can do this through an API. That is exactly what I need, easy to integrate and doesnt require fixing stuff when it breaks down for whatever reason. Does anybody have experiences with any of those? The few that I found either don't reply to a sales email or a test video I uploaded to them didnt run properly. Any experiences with actual working services?
