FFmpeg (PC) vs FFmpeg (Android)

Post by EuanFox » Mon Jul 08, 2019 10:06 am

Hi guys!
i'm using an Android app called "FFmpeg Media Encoder" which uses the latest v4.1.3.

My device is Huawei Y5II (mtk-6582, Quad-Core 1.3Ghz, RAM 1gb ... yeah, it's a ridiculous phone!)

Since i currently don't own a PC, i'm wondering that --apart from the conversion speed-- what are the differences of using FFmpeg on Android vs PC?

I mean, for instance, i want to encode my FLAC collection to mp3.
if i use this command on my weak Android device:

ffmpeg -i input.flac -c:a libmp3lame -b:a 192k -compression_level 0 output.mp3

will it have the same Quality if i use exactly the same command on a Powerful PC?

Speed doesn't matter... i'm only talking about the Quality.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Depends on used encoder your output may not be bit exact (commonly on mobile devices integer encoder implementation is preferred).
