Convert MP3s & an image to MP4 videos using ffmpeg

for name in *.mp3; do ffmpeg -loop 1 -i imagename.jpg -i "$name" -shortest -c:v libx264 -preset ultrafast -c:a copy "${name%.*}.mp4"; done
I had to upload some songs to YouTube a while back and used this method

  • yt-mp3chanrip() { for count in 1 51 101 151 201 251 301; do for i in $(curl -s http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/users/"$1"/uploads\?start-index="$count"\&max-results=50 | grep -Eo "watch\?v=[^[:space:]\"\'\\]{11}" | uniq); do ffmpeg -i $(wget http://youtube.com/"$i" -qO- | sed -n "/fmt_url_map/{s/[\'\"\|]/\n/g;p}" | sed -n '/^fmt_url_map/,/videoplayback/p' | sed -e :a -e '$q;N;5,$D;ba' | tr -d '\n' | sed -e 's/\(.*\),\(.\)\{1,3\}/\1/') -vn -ab 128k "$(youtube-dl -e http://youtube.com/"$i").mp3"; done; done; unset count i; } create the function and run with yt-mp3chanrip YoutubeUsername Great for channels like ukfDrumAndBass that only post music. No more need for third party browser plugins or websites that only convert one vid one at a time. It'll convert and save to CWD up to 300 of a user's videos to mp3s, one at a time. To increase, just increment the $count pattern. This is a concoction from commands #7718 and #7752, so it uses ffmpeg wget, curl, sed, and youtube-dl -- youtube-dl is only used to get the title of the video which it uses to name the mp3 file. You can use a different naming method if you want and the function should still work.

  • This is an extract from a larger script which makes up slideshow videos from images. $seconds is the number of seconds the video will last, and $num is a loop counter which numbers the videos for concat into a longer video later, so they will be in order. The dev/null bit on the end cuts ffmpeg's verbosity.
