An ffmpeg tutorial

2007-05-27

I wrote a tutorial on how to use ffmpeg a library that can read movie files and encode and decode them pretty much transparently. This allows you to work with video files a lot more easily because you don't have to worry about all the different kinds of crazy formats. This tutorial goes over how images are encoded for video (not RGB but YUV!), threading, and how to sync digital audio and video. I submitted this to reddit where it fared pretty well, and someone else submitted it to digg, too. Overall, the reaction has been very good, which is awesome.
