FFmpeg 用法概览

背景 最近买了个4K,144Hz的 HDR 显示器。新的显示器很不错,于是我想先进行测试一下。 于是我下载了非常多 4K 视频,准备观赏观赏。但是很快发现,怎么得到最优质的播放体验还是一个深坑。而衡量视频质量,除了看分辨率,还要看编码格式,码率,色彩,HDR等信息。 显然,现在折腾视频,最方便的工具就是 ffmpeg 了。FFmpeg 是一个开放源代码的自由软件,可以执行音频和视频多种格式的录影、转换、串流功能,非常适合快速、批量的修改视频。 开始之前 安装ffmpeg ffmpeg 的最新版下载地址始终都是: 直接将其下载,解压,放到一个地方,将 exe 文件所在路径加入环境变量 PATH 即可。 了解视频的编码格式 开始之前,需要先了解平时经常使用的编码格式和平台支持情况,以及什 …

我们每天的生活都离不开微信。微信基本上已经成了在中国生活的一部分。 但是,微信有些方面的功能总是看起来令人觉得有些奇怪。例如: 微信几乎是第一款需要手机扫码才能登录PC端的 微信群和微信聊天记录在切换设备后会完全无法同步 你无法得知自己是否被一个微信好友拉黑了 你不能同时在多个移动设备上同时登录微信 从产品的角度来看,这些设定看起来彷佛是在给用户制造障碍,也成了大家普遍对微信的槽点。那么,微信的团队为什么要这么设计,而为什么又不改良它的体验呢?我想或许问题并不只是产品和需求分析这么简单,而是还需要进一步探寻架构上的本质。 在我生活在澳大利亚期间,我发现一件很有趣的事情:在澳大利亚,我使用微信给同样在澳大利亚的好友发送微信消息,他也可以几乎瞬间收到。假想微信在国内建立单点的服务器,那么这种性能一定不足以支撑澳大利亚内的通信。数据从澳洲抵达中国再从中国推送到澳洲至少需要500ms。而表现来看 …
