The Point

This script automates the process of creating an .ogv, an .mp4, and an optional .webm file for use in particular with the “Video for Everybody” HTML5 approach to web video.

The script will also create an image to use as a poster for the video.

I run this script from a bash terminal on Mac and Linux systems.
