Hello i am kinda new with ffmpeg and learning everyday, i am now looking for on how i can compress a video in a smaller size. since i have some 1920x1080 mp4 files with a rediculous high size.

For example, take this .mp4 i got. it is in;

duration: 22 minutes and 31 seconds long (00:22:31).

Resolution 1920x1080

Frames per second 30fps

This file is came out of export from a editting software as 3,85Gb wich is to big in my oppinion. *

I need some help with how i could reduse this file size when using ffmpeg. I have tryed to find some tips and i've tryed last night this command:

ffmpeg -i "source.mp4" -c:v libx264 -b:v 1.5M -c:a aac -b:a 128k "target.mp4"

i had found it somewhere on youtube with saying there would be no quality loss, but unfortunately it had, and a little to much.

So who could help me further? I would love to get some help.

Greats sam.
