Slow down a video “mencoder”, “ffmpeg” and “sox”

Today we still talk about video editing command line, ffmpeg as well as we will see in broad terms how they work mencoder and sox: is the first part of the project “mplayer“, the second helps us in definition audio. The end result of this tutorial will be the original video (including audio) slowed. In short will last twice.

To begin with we must have a video format “mp4“. If we use our size differs ffmpeg by convertirlo. (more…)

Alarm-clock: An alarm clock for Linux

If we have no desire or time to configure cron with the terminal, we can use “alarm-clock“, an alarm clock by which you can set of events at fixed times for Linux.

Alarm-clock” is a small and simple package already present in the repository Ubuntu and Fedora. Ubuntu is installed with the most classic:

$ sudo apt-get install alarm-clock

Often we convince ourselves that for a sound “perfect” is necessary to have a multi-effect pedals, valvular, and a full rack, but it is often enough “play” a little with the equalizer amp.

The following settings are usually applied to amplifiers enough powerful (from 100The), ed a cure one clean sound particular, better if valvular. You'll still bring even more modest amplifiers with, which of course will not have the same yield. Clearly groped costs nothing and can be fun too. (more…)
