  • The "map" may be different depending on the .wmv file. run `ffprobe` to see which is the video-track in the .wmv file usually this is "0.0". Stream #0.0: Video:... Stream #0.1: Audio: .. and "1.0" corresponds to the 2nd input file - your new audio. You may want to add "-acodec wmav2" and "-ar 128k" options for 128kbit/s Windows Media Audio 2 or whatever audio-codec/quality your want. `ffmpeg -codecs | grep "EA"` gives you a list of available codecs for Encoding Audio. Try using '-sameq' instead of '-vcodec copy' (re-encode the video with same quality rather than a bit-exact copy - this often solves muxing issues but will cause a small loss of either video quality or increased bandwidth). and also try a different output format eg. 'new_video.avi' or '' instead of 'new_video.wmv'. you may need both, this should work: ffmpeg -i vid.wmv -i aud.wav -sameq -map 0.0 -map 1.0 output.avi

    ffmpeg -i orig_video.wmv -i new_audio.wav -vcodec copy -map 0.0 -map 1.0 new_video.wmv

  • Uses ffmpeg to convert all that annoying .FLAC files to MP3 files keeping all the Artist's information in them. There's not much more to it. Show Sample Output

    find . -name "*.flac" -exec ffmpeg -i {} -ab 160k -map_metadata 0 -id3v2_version 3 {}.mp3 \;

  • Uses soxi instead of mplayer

    soxi -D * | awk '{SUM += $1} END { printf "%d:%d:%d\n",SUM/3600,SUM%3600/60,SUM%60}'

  • All the other example fail when running in a folder containing too many files due to * being saturated. This command does not use *, allowing me to run it in one folder containing over 300000 audio files. As to running on so many files, I used GNU parallel in order to spawn as many processes as cores, tremendously fasting up the process. Show Sample Output

    ls|grep ".wav"|parallel -j$(nproc) soxi -D {}|awk '{SUM += $1} END { printf "%d:%d:%d\n",SUM/3600,SUM%3600/60,SUM%60}'

  • Tries to switch all audio devices to the A2DP profile for optimal sound quality. Useful for bluetooth speakers and headphones that always power up in HSP/HFP mode. Note however that this command is only a shorthand for the GUI, so it cannot fix stubborn BT controllers that leave your device stuck in HSP mode until a manual re-coupling.

    for card in $(pacmd list-cards | grep 'name: ' | sed 's/.*<\(.*\)>.*/\1/'); do pacmd set-card-profile $card a2dp_sink; done

  • The quality ranges between 0 to 9, with the smaller number indicates a higher quality file but bigger too.

  • I often run some command that takes a while to finish. By putting the say command afterward, I get an audio notification. Please note that this command (say) only works on Mac OS X and not Linux.

    long_command; say I am all done

  • this will increase the volume by 2 decibels on the pcm channel. the argument to -c is for which sound card to use, the arg after set is the channel (PCM, Master, etc.) and what to set by. related commands: amixer -c 0 set PCM 2dB- decrease volume by 2 decibels amixer -c 0 set PCM toggle toggle mute/unmute this is for alsa systems for mac os (and maybe other UNIX systems) osascript -e 'set Volume *' where * is any number (can have decimal points) between 0 and 10

    amixer -c 0 set PCM 2dB+

What's this? is the place to record those command-line gems that you return to again and again. That way others can gain from your CLI wisdom and you from theirs too. All commands can be commented on, discussed and voted up or down.

Use tee + process substitution to split STDOUT to multiple commands
Using process substitution, we can 'trick' tee into sending a command's STDOUT to an arbitrary number of commands. The last command (command4) in this example will get its input from the pipe.

Compare prices in euro of the HTC Desire on all the european websites of Expansys.
You think Expansys in all these countries will sell the HTC Desire for the same price? Well, you'll be surprised. Most of them will be sold at 499.99 EUR but the cheapest can be found in Germany and the most expensive, in Belgium.

Which processes are listening on a specific port (e.g. port 80)
swap out "80" for your port of interest. Can use port number or named ports e.g. "http"

list block devices
Shows all block devices in a tree with descruptions of what they are.

Merge tarballs
Requires the GNU tar ignore zeros option.

Create a mirror of a local folder, on a remote server
Create a exact mirror of the local folder "/root/files", on remote server 'remote_server' using SSH command (listening on port 22) (all files & folders on destination server/folder will be deleted)

Display a block of text with AWK
I find this terribly useful for grepping through a file, looking for just a block of text. There's "grep -A # pattern file.txt" to see a specific number of lines following your pattern, but what if you want to see the whole block? Say, the output of "dmidecode" (as root): $ dmidecode | awk '/Battery/,/^$/' Will show me everything following the battery block up to the next block of text. Again, I find this extremely useful when I want to see whole blocks of text based on a pattern, and I don't care to see the rest of the data in output. This could be used against the '/etc/securetty/user' file on Unix to find the block of a specific user. It could be used against VirtualHosts or Directories on Apache to find specific definitions. The scenarios go on for any text formatted in a block fashion. Very handy.

simple backup with rsync
With this cron, rsync begins to sinchronize the contents of the local directory on /[VIPdirectory] with the directory /backup/[VIPdirectory] on the remote server X.X.X.X. Previously we need working on public/private-keys ssh to guarantee the acces to the remote server on X.X.X.X

check open ports without netstat or lsof
