Yes, I have not had time to test all templates yet. FFMPEG crashes when the 
bitrate is too high or too low, or when a parameter value does not fit.

I am not an expert in all these parameters, so if someone wants to provide 
better parameter values for the templates, just let me know.

If you want to help improve, you can create a custom encoder in Kdenlive:
Go to Export dialog -> Custom ->New

Put the name you want, the extension is the file extension, for 
example "mpeg". In the parameters value, you can just copy/paste the value of 
an encoder that crashes and try to adjust the values so that it doesn't crash 
anymore and gives the best possible result.

There seems to be a list of the available parameters ( I just found it 
now :) ) here:
