Are these Flash videos? Could be possible if they are streaming into Firefox on Windows XP.

I know that you're asking for a software solution but anyway here's what I've found: http://www.datapath.co.uk/products/multi-display-products/datapath-x4 The Datapath x4 is a stand alone display wall controller that accepts a standard single or dual-link DVI input and can flexibly display this across four output monitors. Each output can be driven ...

ffprobe -select_streams v -show_frames -count_frames INPUT_FILE | grep pkt_duration_time= Add up the duration. Could be fancier with sed/awk and what not. From our testing I can say that for now it has shown to be the best most reliable. You get a precise framecount and exact duration. Even with variable framerate which all other tools like mediainfo ...

The video mode performance is probably related to the bottlenecks of your system. For example, OpenGL typically runs on your GPU, if your GPU is fully utilized while playing Assassin's Creed IV then you might get better VLC performance from using CPU rendering. On the other hand, if your CPU is completely pegged while gaming you might actually get better ...

You are essentially talking about separate encodes for separate chunks of video, which can be achieved as separate runs- as in the case of your command ffmpeg -i mtb.mp4 -ss 05 -t 5 -c:v libx264 -c:a aac -strict -2 transcoded3.mp4. To use the Trim filter to slice a chunk from say 5 seconds to 10 seconds, use this (this does use setpts and asetpts): ...

I would have said VLC Media Player as well but perhaps Wall might work better for you. Tools > Video Effects > Geometry > Wall (then rows and columns). Basically it will slice your video up into pieces, each of which you can maximise to a given screen. Great for big displays, kiosks, retail environments etc. Need monitors with limited bevels tho otherwise ...

Freemake will do this as below. It's the single best converter out there as far as I'm concerned. Open source and malware free. Does a superb job re: compression and supports tons of formats. As per my comment tho dunno why you'd to go to AVI container with Xvid codec from MP4.

From VideoLAN official website, we learn that MKV is really one of VLC Player supported video formats. Since MKV is a container format which can contain many tracks with different audio and video compression formats, many people are stuck with "VLC stuttering or choppy when playing HD MKV", "Can't hear the sound of MKV files at all" or "VLC just load ...

VLC Media Player supports this feature. Tools > Preferences > Show settings: All > Video > Filters > enable Panoramix. Then open the Filters tree, go to Panoramix, and choose the settings you want (e.g. 3 columns, 1 row). Keep in mind, your video would have to be an extremely wide aspect ratio (e.g. 3840x720). Even an anamorphic widescreen movie wouldn't ...

The behavior will depend on what version of PPT you're using. In PPT 2010 and later, movies are embedded by default rather than linked. If you're linking, the trick is to put the movie file in the same folder as the PowerPoint file, THEN add the movie to the presentation. This will produce a link that points to just the file name of the video, not the ...

Hacking LAV Splitter to use plain old buffering LAV Splitter is used to fetch network data in some media players (e.g. MPC-HC). The LAV buffer (aka packets queue) is not measured in data volume, but rather in packets (or frames, not sure here). Anyway, since the network throughput is limited by data volume, the number of packets in queue is multiplied by ...

Use grep to select only those lines you are looking for. Redirect the output from STDERR to STDOUT, since ffmpeg will output all info there. ffmpeg -i filename.mp4 2>&1 | grep <keyword> Edit: A full working example using perl: $ ffmpeg -i MVI_7372.AVI 2>&1 | grep Video | perl -wle 'while(<>){ $_ =~ /.*?(\d+x\d+).*/; print $1 }' ...

Indeed, overlay only works on video. You need to amix the two audio sources. -map 1 will not work since the second movie is loaded by a filter. You may want to use two -i inputs and amix their audio: ffmpeg \ -i "Fraps 2014-11-14 07-51-04-70_cut.mp4" \ -i "FFsplit-141106-222552_cut.mp4" \ -filter_complex "[0:v]fps=fps=30, setpts=PTS-STARTPTS, ...

ffmpeg should be able to read from URLs as well. Just specify the offset in seconds or HH:MM:SS.msec format for the -ss option: ffmpeg -i http://example.com/video.mp4 -ss 5 -frames:v 1 thumbnail.png This works with other HTML5 containers as well. If you're on a Linux distro, make sure that you don't install ffmpeg via apt-get install ffmpeg, but compile ...

For ffmpeg to write to an MP4 file, it needs the output to be seekable (for creating the required MP4 atoms). MP4 is not a streamable container though. This means you cannot pipe "raw" MP4 data over an SSH connection, or just a regular Unix pipe. You could use Matroska as a format: ssh USER_NAME@SERVER_IP "ffmpeg -i "..." -c copy -f matroska pipe:1" | cat ...

I couldn't figure out any easy way in which I can play with ffmpeg arguments and solve my problem. So I figured another workaround as also suggested by user:dstob. Let's say I need to store 10 frames per second, then I can iterate the time by 0.1 second and using the -ss argument I can seek the movie to that particular timestamp. Now I will know which frame ...

In some server and other "very serious" motherboards you can access BIOS via terminal connected to COM port, but I guess most of consumer motherboards have no such feature. There is also Intel System Management, but I think this is available for servers. It is designed to manage computers remotely and you can change BIOS options with this. Image source: ...

No you cannot change BIOS settings without a functional video adapter. However you can try following: Check if your motherboard has on board video output. For access to BIOS, you can use the cheapest video adapter you can find that fits in the slot on motherboard. You donot need a powerful 3D accelerated video adapter for gaming.

Your two definitions should be Landscape = 'laying down' & Portrait = 'standing up'. Rule #1 for video is never use portrait, as everybody watches in landscape.

If frame-rate is constant then you could just create a script to rename the files. I do not know of a way to do it within ffmpeg. If you wanted to automate things a bit more you could use ffprobe to generate your frame information and use that time-stamp information to rename the files.

Single example Using ffmpeg to re-encode the video stream(s) and stream copy everything else: ffmpeg -i original.mkv -map 0 -c copy -c:v libx264 output.mkv See one of the various encoding guides for info on whatever format you want. All streams from the first input, labeled 0 and the only input in this case, are mapped with -map 0. Otherwise default ...

The answer was not to use ffmpeg at all. It turns out that H264/AVC streams support concatination, and so simply taking two seperate streams at different resolutions and using cat works perfectly. So, with two streams at different resolutions... cat stream_a.h264 stream_b.h264 >> stream_c.h264 Then wrap it up in whatever container you'd like.

The other program is a red herring. Blender is perfectly happy with the modified video file. The important bit is " In the Video Sequence Editor Preview's properties under 'View Settings' I've set 'Proxy rend' to 'Proxy size 25%' to speed up previews." Once you're done that, you need to create proxies for your video files. When I added the original video ...

As far as I know, the HDMI standard insists there must be some picture, even if it's just black screen. If that would be OK, then maybe some type of HDMI breakout box to separate the audio - something like this http://www.amazon.co.uk/Av-Tool-HDMI-AUDIO-BREAKOUT/dp/B00BBE77H8 I've never tested it, so I've no idea how it would work.

Method 1: Use sequence patterns What you really need is this, if your first image is called GOPR0001.JPG: ffmpeg.exe -i "GOPR%04d.JPG" -pix_fmt yuv420p out.mp4 Or if the first image is called GOPR3973.JPG, you need to give ffmpeg the start number to look for: ffmpeg.exe -start_number 3973 -i "GOPR%04d.JPG" -pix_fmt yuv420p out.mp4 Method 2: Use ...

Stream copy (re-mux) You can stream copy instead of encoding. Think of it like a copy and paste. Your command would then look like: ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -vf scale=640x360,setdar=16:9 -c:v libx264 \ -preset veryslow -profile:v main -crf 18 -c:a copy output.mp4 Since the audio is just being copied there will be no quality loss and it will be fast because ...

Based on some trial and error, it seems that it works when you first convert the existing input to some other intermediate file, and then overlay them. For example, you could use HuffYUV, high quality H.264, lossless H.264, ProRes, etc.: ffmpeg -i input.mkv -c:v huffyuv -c:a pcm_s16le output.avi ffmpeg -i input.mkv -c:v libx264 -crf 16 -c:a aac -strict ...

I would immediately say if file-size doesn't really matter then just experiment with increasing the bit-rate.

The problem is that the default bitrate for the MPEG-2 is rather low (as with most other video encoders in ffmpeg, the H.264 one being an exception). MPEG-2 is also not the best choice as a codec these days. Better quality for MPEG-2 You have a few options if you want to stick with MPEG-2: Increase the bitrate. You're now using -b:v 2500k. If it's HD ...
