Topic: FLV conversion using Ruby/Rails
I am building a youtubish web site that will allow users to upload video in multiple formats, then convert the media files to FLV format to be played back on the web site.
Has anyone tried this using Ruby before? The two tools I am checking out are ffmpeg and mencoder, but I'm not really sure what the pros/cons are to each tool.
Maybe there are some Ruby wrappers to those tools that could simplify the process a bit?
