A simple video script
The other day, I wanted to prepare some videos of my favorite reggae and soul tunes for uploading them to YouTube. My goal was very simple: prepare a video with the music, and a static image.
After briefly digging for a simple software to do that, which I could not find, I said ``hey, why not doing it with liquidsoap’’? Well, that is fairly easy!
Here is the code:
log.level.set(4) audio = once(single("/tmp/bla.mp3")) video = single("/tmp/bla.jpg") # Mux audio and video source = mux_video(video=video,audio) # Disable real-time processing, to process with the maximum speed clock.assign_new(sync='none',[source]) # Encode video and copy audio: encoder = %ffmpeg(format="mp4", %audio.copy, %video(codec="libx264")) # Output to a theora file, shutdown on stop output.file(fallible=true,on_stop=shutdown, "/tmp/encoded-video.mp4", encoder, source)
