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've been trying to achieve a crossfade transition between 2 video clips using ffmpeg but have failed so far. I'm new to ffmpeg and am mostly relying on tweaking what I can find in the documentation and existing examples online.
I recently learned about the convert command from imagemagick which I have used to compress many pictures that I have for personal use, and for a blog that I have. In my experience, Imagemagick is the best image compressor program, and it gives one the most control over how to compress images.
