What list of commands should I do in ffmpeg/mencoder/some_other_CLI_app to get a video in all the right formats to use Video for Everybody?
i.e. Is there a subtlety that prevents there being a mechanical tutorial that says
VIDEO=video.mp4 TYPE=$(ffmpeg --find-information-about-the-video ... ) ffmpeg ... > video.mov ffmpeg ... > video.flv ffmpeg ... > video.webm ffmpeg ... > video.h.264 ...
Then copy and paste the Video for Everybody code into your page?
My goal is to have an embedded video in my personal webpage hosted by me. HTML5 with flash fallback is preferred, so the simplest way seems to be Video for Everybody. But that page leaves the most complicated part, encoding the video into all the different formats, to the reader to figure out by reading a long and complete article about video formats. Surely this isn't necessary. I could provide a list of commands for a user to blindly convert an audio file into a bunch of different formats. Hopefully an ffmpeg guru could do the same for video.
