I've written an article about some tricks you can do with ffmpeg, in today's article, I will show you another trick - compressing avi and mp4 video files with a simple command with a only a small loss in video quality.
If you dont have ffmpeg already installed, you can run this command to install it in Ubuntu and other Debian-based distros:
sudo apt-get install libav-tools
I have a security question regarding the mime types.
I have a website on which users can upload videos. Prior to encoding with ffmpeg, I make a mime-type check to be sure the video file is really a video file and not a weird file or even an exec with a video file extension.
Nevertheless sometimes, mime-type aren't recognized, especially with mkv containers.
We were randomly emailed by one Michal Sadowski, an entrepreneur from Poland. The video he sent us is a sort of MTV-esque homage to the swirl of experiences that might happen to a startup founder were they to compress their experience into a fast-paced music video, shot in the first person. It’s pretty creative, we’ll give him that.
So what I wanted to do is compress files (using 7zip) and split a 600MB folder into 199MB parts, but sadly when I tried to do this task with archive manager it gave me an error, but I know that if I use terminal it will work.
Ubuntu is great but I cannot edit HD video or compress video files. I tried video editing using avidemux but the audio comes out too fast. I am also trying to compress video files but nothing seems to work. I tried transmageddon and when I press the transcode button the progress meter doesn't move and nothing happens.
