Table of Contents

FFMPEG Quick Hacks book

FFMPEG Quick Hacks can help you quickly learn to use the free command-line video-editing utility FFmpeg - cut, copy, record, edit, tag, convert, rotate, flip, resize, crop, combine, compose, blur, sharpen, smoothen, side-by-side split, PIP inset, fade in/out... Also learn to use subtitles, audio/image files and metadata with video.

The book is a novel attempt to bring this great software program to the masses. This book uses powerful learning cues to make concepts clear and interesting to the reader.

The book can be used as an FFmpeg tutorial, a hack collection and a desk-side reference.

This book was created entirely using Free and Open-Source Software (FOSS). And, by that, I do not just mean 'not exported from Microsoft word'. I have written, illustrated, formatted and designed the book using a variety of freedom-oriented software. It is neatly designed and richly illustrated like any other traditionally published book. Check the excerpts document if you need to. (It does have unsightly watermarks, also applied using FOSS:-) And, in the spirit of open source, I have decided to make the ebook free in April 2021, one year after publication.
