i discovered making animated gifs from movies is also easy with ffmpeg.

lovely tutorial is here:
blog.pkh.me/p/21-high-quality-

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

and then

$ gifenc.sh OUTPUT.avi OUTPUT.gif

today i successfully tested 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.

oh nice.

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
