Enable Theora 2-pass encoding with confidence
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Once more thoroughly tested & fixed, it would be nice to turn on 2-pass encoding for theora .ogv transcodes, with the confidence that they won't explode and gum up the works.

Currently thinking of abandoning constant bitrate encoding and switching overall to variable bitrate / constant quality, in which case 2-pass mode won't be relevant.

Abandoning, we dropped Theora derivative generation due to ongoing issues with mostly-unmaintained ffmpeg2theora.
