Cat Videos Reprise

posted image

When I first posted these videos of my little buddy a few months ago, there was apparently a problem with the way I formatted the videos, because many of you couldn’t view them.  Well I’ve now fixed them, so everyone should be able to see them just fine, even on your iPhones.  Let me know if not!

On a technical note, here’s the command I used to create these files:

ffmpeg -y -threads 2 -i video.avi -s 480x320 -r 29.97 -vcodec mpeg4 -g 300 -b 350k -async 50 -acodec aac -ar 44100 -ac 2 -ab 128k video.mp4

The videos came out of the camera as 640x480 AVI files consuming about 2 MB for each second of video.  The conversion to 480x320 in MP4 format produced files using only 58 KB per second of video.  The first file, for example, started out as a 45 MB AVI and ended up as a 1.4 MB MP4, which is a reduction of about 97%.
