NOTE: This is a project for media conversion gurus. If you eat and sleep x264, understand Flash 9 players, and have worked with High Definition on the web, this is for YOU. IPod fanaticism is a big plus! Also, patience with a team new to these concepts is greatly appreciated (and please excuse bad use of terminology here - again, that's why a guru is needed).
I have a programmer who is working on a YouTube-like piece of software to support HD. Part of that is encoding video for playing on the Web and for IPod users. We're using the x264 codec. The desired encoding options are:
x264 codec 2500 bitrate
x264 codec 1500 bitrate
x264 codec 600 bitrate
My host environment is setup for HD encryption, and has just about every piece of software imaginable. Problem is, writing the correct instructions to ensure optimal conversion quality (video and audio) to go with the bitrates listed above.
I'm looking for someone who can work with my coder to ensure these instructions are setup properly in our system.
Again, you DO NOT have to know the other stuff (i.e., PHP, etc.), I just need a real conversion guru to help with the actual HD conversion instructions. Of course, please use PMB to discuss. Thanks!
