This project is a collection of video- and audio-related scripts - multimedia-related actions. What are multimedia-related actions? Multimedia-related actions are, for example, converting a .mp4 file into a .mp3 file or encoding video files into different formats. Cutting audio/video data into smaller chunks also falls into this area. Merging .mp4 files into a new file does as well. Extracting the audio from an .avi or .mp3 container. And so on and so forth. This can all be done quite easily via ffmpeg on the commandline anyway, but I did want to have an umbrella project bundling all these actions together into one place, into one ruby module, and to optionally use something else rather than ffmpeg. It includes, among other files, these scripts: video_player.rb (which is just a little wrapper over mplayer), copy_missing_video_files.rb (which is supposed to copy video collections from external HDD devices), ffmpeg_options.rb (which makes using ffmpeg more convenient), find_missing_video_files.rb (which will iterate over a yaml collection of video files, and informs us which one are missing). For more documentation, see the link called Documentation on the rubygems homepage of this gem.
