Halve frame rate on 48/50/60fps video transcodes
Open, LowPublic


Currently our transcodes ship the original frame rate except for 160p which forces to a max of 15fps.

48/50/60fps videos look great but usually aren't necessary and waste either bandwidth or quality and CPU time; most 50/60fps videos I've come across on Commons just happen to be from high-quality originals and aren't demonstrating high-frame-rate goodness.

Consider cutting the frame rate in half on transcodes of >=48fps sources.
