Top 6 Ruby Video Projects

  • Video Transcoding

    Tools to transcode, inspect and convert videos.

    Project mention: What Are Your Most Used Self Hosted Applications? | | 2022-05-04

    I have primarily used Plex and pretty much everything you said is accurate for Plex as well. Limited transcoding based on the machine it is running on. As disc has become cheaper, I have pretty much stopped doing batch transcodes, which is great for the most part. But there are definitely negatives when you want to watch something offline, or remotely. Biggest pain point is subtitles though. Since they aren't ripped as text and then sent to a client, they have to be burned in to the video itself and transcoded on the fly. Which means losing out on 'forced' ones if it can't transcode fast enough.

    Plex has definitely started to try and commercialize itself more and offer other stuff, when all I want is access to my own media. So I may look into Jellyfin more soon.

    As for batch transcode jobs, I had a system that I was able to set up as essentially a black box. Drop a rip into a folder and out the other side comes a smaller one at a reasonable quality. With forced subs burned right into the actual video. Mostly based on

  • Streamio FFMPEG

    Simple yet powerful ruby ffmpeg wrapper for reading metadata and transcoding movies

    Project mention: Split videos to chunks using Ruby on Rails | | 2021-09-29

    I found this but I don't know to integrate it into my rails app!

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • Yt

    The reliable YouTube API Ruby client

  • DistorteD

    Ruby multimedia toolkit with deep Jekyll integration 🧪

    Project mention: Fun with File Formats | | 2021-12-13

    In addition to this resource and UK's equivalent (PRONOM/DROID, also mentioned in the linked post), I've found ArchiveTeam's wiki to be very useful for obscure file format details:

    The `shared-mime-info` database from freedesktop-dot-org is probably more worthy of contribution than these government-backed databases, at least in terms of number-of-end-users. New type definitions in their database will improve the entire Linux/BSD ecosystem (both desktop and server!) because it's consumed not only by fd.o's own `update-mime-database` utility but by many language-specific type-identification libraries too

    …including (shameless plug) the new Ractor-based Ruby type library I've been working on in the wake of the `mimemagic` drama earlier this year:
