Guys, people do not know how much power they have with free and open source software, but a neat tool is out and the name is ffmpeg2theora. I wrote a little bit about it before, but this time I am going to talk about how to convert any video file into ogg Vorbis. That is the extension that end on “OGG” Well, I usually try to find out what are the bittrate for the video and audio. There are a number of ways to do that but I usually use a tool which is call “mediainfo” if you would like to go to their website just click here.
With “mediainfo” you can find out information about any about any files out there, so, install it and take advantage. Now, going back to the subject. there are files that I download from the Internet, video files I mean, and convert them to Vorbis media that is OGG file. Any how here is the code: ffmpeg2theora –novideo –no-skeleton input.videofile -o outputmusicfile.ogg . And there you have it, the sound of the file rip from it and encoded in ogg format. There are more tricks, but for that you might want to use the man pages or do ” man ffmpeg2theora”
Now, you have the power to rip any video files into OGG audio files.
The power is users. Just like Captain Planet.
