Do you have a large library of flv's you have picked up over the years using FlashGot Firefox plugin?
Do you want to be able to convert them to Ogg Theora (video) at once?
Try out this script...
Is a simple script for video streaming a movie
A short variant if you have only one directory whit only audio files in it.
Supports other file formats.
Stream OGG vorbis over ssh.
Streaming HTML5 compatible video (Ogg Theora video with Vorbis sound) to an Icecast server using dvgrab, ffmpeg2theora and oggfwd.
In this example I'm merging stereo sound to mono (-c 1), saving the original dv for later higher quality on-demand video (tee dvstream.dv), saving the theora stream for immediate on-demand video, and publishing the stream in Xiph's stream directory (-p and the name and description).
The URL of the video will be (depending on your server) http://my.icecastserver.com/stream.ogv which will play in newer Firefox, Chrome and Opera web browsers. Cortado (a Java player) can easily be used for IE.
Note also that I'm using port 80, which is not the default port for Icecast, this is to avoid restrictive firewalls.
Also note that ffmpeg2theora 0.25 and will heed the bitrates much better than former versions because of using libtheora 1.1 or newer.
This is not recommended... lossy -> lossy = lossier.
Still, you can do it! ;)
cd to the folder containing the wav files and convert them all to ogg format.
in my sample output i use the -a and -l flags to set the author and album title.
to get the oggenc program in ubuntu linux run:
sudo apt-get install oggenc
Converts all ogg files to mp3 files in the current directory.
