Cheat Sheet

FFmpeg is useful for converting between various audio, video, and image formats.

Many simple conversions can be auto-detected by file extension and the options that produce the most similar quality by default.

ffmpeg -i input.m4a output.mp3

Important information per https://johnvansickle.com/ffmpeg/release-readme.txt

Notes: A limitation of statically linking glibc is the loss of DNS resolution. Installing nscd through your package manager will fix this.

This is relevant if using ffmpeg to relay to an RTMP server via domain name.

# for example, this will not work without `nscd` installed.

ffmpeg -re -stream_loop -1 -i "FooBar.m4v" -c copy -f flv rtmp://stream.example.com/foo/bar
