Description

Hi,

I guess many (new) users struggle with container and codec selection what creating transcoding profiles. Maybe we could be create defaults for typical use cases (and even name them accordingly).

e.g.: "webtv-compat"
For compatibility with most browsers.
According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTML5_video this would be h264-aac-mp4, which is really useful imho.

another one could be: "webtv-chromecast"
Could be h264-aac-webm. Usabe with TVHclient's Chromcast feature.

Usable settings for acceptable quality with low bitrate would be e.g.
- Video bitrate 26 (crf)
- Audio bitrate 64 (kbit/s)
- preset veryfast

If not a real preset is created, then maybe just examples in the help section would help? Just an idea to make life easier. :)

Cheers
Dietmar.

My h.264+aac in mp4 container is working quite fine here, also with several IE and Edge versions, and also in Chrome and FF. Table in the linked Wikipedia article shows that also. That's why I requested to add something like this to the default.
