  • FFMPEG NVIDIA/CUDA GPU-enabled Docker Container (w/ Jupyter Notebooks)
    reddit.com/r/ffmpeg | 2021-05-02
    I just developed a new bleeding-edge NVIDIA GPU-enabled container with FFmpeg pre-installed on an Anaconda container xychelsea/ffmpeg-nvidia:latest , and optional Jupyter Notebooks container xychelsea/ffmpeg:latest-jupyter .
  • How did I forget that 93MB was more than 1GB
    Video/Audio: FFmpeg. Probably every site that converts files uses it, even YouTube, it supports basically every format there is, open source, and doesn't take much space (~275KB). Not easy to learn though, and its command line only, but you can find GUIs for it online
  • Batch crop videos (with mkvtoolnix?)?
    If you're willing to use an external program, there's FFmpeg. This command line tool can do almost anything to audio / video.
  • How do you downscale your VODs to share?
    reddit.com/r/VALORANT | 2021-04-19
    If you're OK with using a terminal, you can use ffmpeg. I use it for any video downscaling/conversion/etc.
  • DVD/Blu-Ray Conversion
    reddit.com/r/PleX | 2021-04-19
    Most people recommend MakeMKV for ripping discs. It creates a 1:1 copy of the video on the disc, so there's no quality loss. If you're limited on space and don't want to spend money on more storage, you can use something like HandBrake (or if you're comfortable with the commandline, ffmpeg, which HandBrake uses under the hood) to shrink the file down.
