FFmpeg is my all time favorite CLI tool. The obscene amount time I have spent using FFmpeg over the years is just ridiculous, this is one of the few tools out there that I can’t live without. It goes without saying I deal with a lot of video editing. So naturally, I am very excited about this new major version release. You can see a quick list of major changes on their changelog.
For the longest time (still is to a smaller extent), gif ruled the interweb of video-based memes. But the problem with gif is they slow to load files are usually much larger than a file of the same video with a lower quality and slow loading. Even with large bandwidth gif file tends to load slower. One solution, though probably not the original intention, was to use WebM format.
