Video transcoding... easier than riding a bike.




Tricycle is an open-source video transcoder. It takes the guesswork out of converting videos by using layman's terms and providing a reasonable default configuration. Tricycle is powered by other open-source projects such as FFmpeg, x264, and x265.
