  • This will dump a raw BGRA pixel stream and WAV which must then be converted to video: ffmpeg -f rawvideo -c:v rawvideo -s 1280x720 -r 12 -pix_fmt bgra -i "${i%.*}".bgra -c:v libx264 -preset veryslow -qp 0 -movflags +faststart -i "${i%.*}".wav -c:a libfdk_aac -b:a 384k "${i%.*}".mp4 ; rm "${i%.*}".bgra "${i%.*}".wav Our example generates an x264/720p/12fps/AAC best-quality MP4. To get dump-gnash, first install the build-dependencies for gnash (this step is OS-specific). Then: git clone ; cd gnash ; ./ ; ./configure --enable-renderer=agg --enable-gui=dump --disable-menus --enable-media=ffmpeg --disable-jemalloc ; make

    i=in.swf; dump-gnash -1 -j 1280 -k 720 -D "${i%.*}".bgra@12 -A "${i%.*}".wav "${i}"

Check These Out

check open ports without netstat or lsof

Print compile time in seconds package by package (Gentoo Distros)

Show available conversions
aliases on each line. i.e. txt2html: $recode ..HTML file.html txt to Base64: $recode ../b64 file.b64 and so on.

List out classes in of all htmls in directory
Lists out all classes used in all *.html files in the currect directory. usefull for checking if you have left out any style definitions, or accidentally given a different name than you intended. ( I have an ugly habit of accidentally substituting camelCase instead of using under_scores: i would name soemthing counterBox instead of counter_box) WARNING: assumes you give classnames in between double quotes, and that you apply only one class per element.

Protect directory from an overzealous rm -rf *
-R Recursively change attributes of directories and their contents. +i to set the immutable bit to prevent even root from erasing or changing the contents of a file.

Outputs each arg on its own line
This can be useful for transforming command-line args into input for xargs (one per line). This can also be done with ls if the args are filenames, but that's getting awfully close to Useless Use of Cat territory (

Create colorized html file from Vim or Vimdiff
While editing a source file in vim, or using vimdiff to compare two or more files, the ':TOhtml' command can be used to export each buffer as an html file, including syntax highlighting and vimdiff colorization. If you are in insert mode in vim, you will have to type :TOhtml This will open a new buffer filled with html, which you can then save.
