I regularly want to make videos for YouTube consisting of a single still album art image + audio track. I use OS X. I'm still looking for the best solution for this seemingly trivial task. [more inside]
My company has a video conference bridge that can record conferences. For any given conference, there are multiple streams of 720p video, sometimes including presentations like PowerPoint. I have been given the task of cleaning up these presentations for posting on the company website. I have never edited video before. I am trying to choose a video editing suite that will allow me to take the .mov files that the bridge generates and choose a single stream to display. [more inside]
What are ideal command-line ffmpeg options, used to back up DVDs and AVIs to x264 mp4 files? [more inside]
I have been searching the Internet like crazy trying to find an API or software development tool that would allow me to create nice slideshows, out of a group of photos, from one of my programs. [more inside]
One-step conversion of a movie clip to an animated gif. Possible (and easy) on a Mac? [more inside]
Does anyone have advice on video compression/transcoding formats, options, etc please? [more inside]
I'd like to legally automate the conversion of quicktime .mov files videos to .flv, providing a drop box service, preferably under linux, but I'm getting tripped up on the first and last parts [more inside]
How do I add subtitles (hardsubs) to an xvid avi when converting from VOBs under FreeBSD? [more inside]
Could someone show this Linux n00b to use ffmpeg to convert a folder full of PNGs to an MPEG? The system I'm running doesn't have Mencoder, and I don't have root (it's a Dreamhost shell account). Thanks!
I need to capture full-size/framerate DV + audio from a firewire source on OS X. That's the easy part. Controlling it from a script is the hard part. If this were Linux I'd use ffmpeg, but it isn't... [more inside]
What is the legal status of the XviD
codec libraries, ffmpeg
, and/or other F/OSS programs that implement the (patented) MPEG-4 algorithm? [more inside]
If I use Handbrake for Mac to encode a DVD title to an AVI file with MPEG-4 video and MP3 audio, will it play in a standalone DivX player if I use the ffmpeg codec, or must I use the (much slower) XviD codec instead? [more inside]
I regularly use ffmpeg to encode videos (from mpeg2 to mpeg4) for my ipod. I've been doing this for nearly a year with no problems. Now, every time I start an encode, my system is suddenly under a lot of pressure - I can't use any other application. If I go into the windows task manager and set the priority to 'below normal', all is fine again.
Anyone have any idea why this change might have occured, or any idea how I can get around it (preferably without using task manager)? [more inside]
