swift-encoder

A fire-and-forget shell script that encodes multiple video files with ffmpeg.

1. Function

The purpose of swift-ffmpeg is to simplify and automate the encoding of multiple video files. Once executed by the user, the script will automatically batch encode video files in a given folder. Encoding options are easily accessable by editing the variables within swift-encoder.sh.


2. Usage (For Linux)

Package Requirements:

  1. ffmpeg
  2. git (optional)

Obtaining

  1. Download the zip or clone the git repo with git clone https://github.com/DonutDeflector/swift-encoder.git
  2. Move swift-encoder.sh to a directory of your choice. I recommend your home folder.
  3. Give the script execute permissions: chmod +x /path/to/swift-encoder.sh

Operation

This script is very easy to use:

  1. Change the encoding options as you see fit in the swift-encoder.sh file.

  2. Run the script: sh swift-encoder.sh optimization /path/to/source/files

    • example: sh swift-encoder.sh anime /home/donut/Videos/NGE
    • example: sh swift-encoder.sh normal /home/donut/Videos/Sports\ Cam

Note: The script will default to normal if the optimization is misspelled.

  1. Sit back, relax, and wait for your files to finish encoding. Once the script is finshed running, the files will be moved into a folder called completed with [se] appended to them.
