[FFmpeg-user] Using the -threads option with -c:v mpeg4?

I have been using variations of the following for a while:

-c:v mpeg4 -q:v 5 -vtag XVID -threads auto

but I believe that:

1. -threads may not work with mpeg4 encoding
2. -threads auto is deprecated and should be an integer from 0 to?

Any guidance on this?


You think that's air you're breathing now?
