Repository of useful FFmpeg command lines for archivists!

What is this?

Project Objective

To facilitate better understanding of FFmpeg through collaborative sharing of useful scripts and detailed flag-level description of how each script works, so archivists can copy-paste and produce their own scripts, but also understand how and why they work.

How do I see it?

The code is found in the gh-pages branch (the default primary branch). Readme is right here. You can see the site live on GitHub pages.

You can also install the latest release on your computer with the command:

brew install amiaopensource/amiaos/ffmprovisr

and then call it locally with the command:

ffmprovisr

This works currently under macOS, Linux and the Linux subsystem on Windows. On classic Windows you can install the last release manually and the open index.html in a browser.

How do I contribute?

You are welcome to edit the codebase yourself, or just supply the information and ask it to be added to the site.

Edit codebase

To contribute to this project directly (and more quickly), clone this repository and create a new branch (git checkout -b your-branch-name) and add or modify a new block in index.html. Then submit a pull request and the maintainers will review and integrate your code. There is a commented-out sample block available at the bottom of index.html that can be as a guideline for your command.

Make a request

If you are having trouble with coding it yourself or with github, feel free to submit an issue with the kind of command you would like to see added to the site.

General help

If you want to help but don't have a new script to add, you can help us by testing out the scripts available, by refining or clarifying the documentation, or creating an issue for anything that sounds confusing and requires clarification.

Code of Conduct

You can read our contributor code of conduct here.
