A few days ago, I was preparing a PowerPoint presentation that included some videos. These are the following ffmpeg commands that I used to optimize the presentation.
Remove audio track Link to heading
ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -c copy -an output.mp4
Note: May change video duration. I don’t know why yet.
Trim video Link to heading
ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -c copy -ss 00:00:01.000 -to 00:00:04.000 output.mp4
Note: Check the trim result, sometimes I had to adjust the starting point to be close to perfect.
Merge videos Link to heading
Merge multiple videos in sequence:
ffmpeg -f concat -safe 0 -i join.txt -c copy output.mp4
Where the join.txt contains:
Convert from avi to mp4 Link to heading
ffmpeg -i input.avi -c:v copy output.mp4
Change video bitrate Link to heading
ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -b 3000k output.mp4
