FFMPEG Discovery


I discovered that I don't need any video editor to make a static music video. How? It's quite easy. I only tested it on Windows platform however. You just need an FFMPEG binary. Place it in a folder somewhere. And an audio file + image file (jpg etc), place it in the FFMpeg folder too.. Open CMD/Powershell, then navigate to the FFMPEG folder.

Pass the following command to CMD/Powershell:

ffmpeg -loop 1 -framerate 2 -i filename.jpg* -i filename.flac* -filter:v scale="trunc(oh*a/2)*2:RESOLUTION*" -c:v libx264 -preset medium -tune stillimage -crf 18 -c:a copy -shortest -movflags faststart output.mkv


Change it to whatever resolution you want the video in. It could be 240, 480, 720, 1080 or higher.
Example: scale="trunc(oh*a/2)*2:1080*"
Change it to whatever format your image are in. It could be jpg, png, tif or etc.
Example: filename.jpg
Change it to whatever format your audio are in. It could be aac, m4a, flac, mp3 or etc.
Example: filename.flac

That's it. Thanks for visiting!
