[vox-tech] Converting video for Facebook

Ok, I don't currently have time to dig into the options, but just in
case there was an mplayer/mencoder or ffmpeg expert on the list and
wanted to figure it out FOR me... ;)

I asked "what's the best format & compression for videos on facebook",
and a friend replied with:

----- Forwarded message -----

According to FB:

Generally, the best format to upload is H.264 video with AAC audio in
MOV or MP4 format. H.264 currently offers the best video compression
available, and due to file size limitations, this format is the
optimal choice for Facebook Video.

To avoid the rescaling of your video by Facebook's encoder, use a file
with the larger edge of the video not exceeding 1280px. If your video
is less than 1280px in size on the larger edge, try to keep your
dimensions to multiples of 16px for best compression.

Keep the frame rate of your video at or below 30fps. 

Use stereo audio with a sample rate of 44,100hz."
