But not it's possible values :-(

May be.

But IMHO all supported ones should at least be listed by name.
At https://www.ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg-codecs.html#Codec-Options I find only:

profile integer (/encoding,audio,video/)

    Possible values:


level integer (/encoding,audio,video/)

    Possible values:


And at https://www.ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg-codecs.html#libx264_002c-libx264rgb
there is only:

profile (/profile/)

    Set profile restrictions.

But nowhere is documented e.g.:
-profile:v baseline
-profile:v main
-profile:v high
-level 3.x

Maybe there are also e.g.:
-profile mpeg4_baseline
-profile mpeg4_high
