i discovered making animated gifs from movies is also easy with ffmpeg.
lovely tutorial is here:
i just created that gifenc.sh (as described in the tut) in my home bin folder,
made it executable:
$ chmod u+x gifenc.sh
precut my video with
$ ffmpeg -t 5 -i INPUT.avi -c:v copy -map 0:v OUTPUT.avi
$ gifenc.sh OUTPUT.avi OUTPUT.gif
today i successfully tested #Jitsi conference using one computer using webclient, one mobile using Android client and my friend in norway using her laptop.
we were able to video-talk for 2h, and I even did some screensharing.
most of the time the transmission was flawless. Every now and then the audio became very choppy but a quick reload fixed it. It took 2-3 seconds.
easy ACCOUNTLESS use: join your room and send a link around.
80s remixes!!!!!!! now!
here's another trick with audio and ffmpeg:
IF you have an mp3/ogg/flac/opus file that has an EMBEDED COVER in ID3 tag, ffmpeg will be very smart with it - all i did here was:
ffmpeg -i levitation.flac -pix_fmt yuv420p levitation.mp4
if ffmpeg complains, try setting image size with -s parameter:
ffmpeg -i input.flac -pix_fmt yuv420p -s 640x640 output.mp4

Very interesting: fb now automatically creates draft messages in your messenger for events you've been host of and are now in the past so you can quickly send a message to everyone who supposedly attended your event.
It's interesting because of so many different ways how fb is manipulating the user into promotion (they would say "offering tools for creating relationships with your audience"). I wonder how many such moves I don't notice as such.
i'm thinking how to fork myself and rewrite some core functionality and add completely new GUI.
