FFMPEG is an extremely useful and versatile tool - it is even used by Mars rover in encoding and transmitting videos back to earth.

A complete, cross-platform solution to record, convert and stream audio and video. Converting video and audio has never been so easy.

Once you learn how to edit videos using ffmpeg, you can never go back to any other video editor - sony vegas pro, or adobe, or final cut pro or whatever. And the best part is FFMPEG is totally free!

FFmpeg is a free and open-source software project consisting of a suite of libraries and programs for handling video, audio, and other multimedia files and streams. At its core is the command-line ffmpeg tool itself, designed for processing of video and audio files. It is widely used for format transcoding, basic editing (trimming and concatenation), video scaling, video post-production effects and standards compliance

FFmpeg also includes other tools:

- ffplay, a simple media player and

- ffprobe, a command-line tool to display media information.

FFmpeg is part of the workflow of many other software projects, and its libraries are a core part of software media players such as VLC, and has been included in core processing for YouTube and BiliBili. Encoders and decoders for many audio and video file formats are included, making it highly useful for the transcoding of common and uncommon media files.

There are tons of special effects also available on ffmpeg that we will gradually cover.
