In less than one hour, we’ll show you how to use FFmpeg— a magical video app that can save you thousands and thousands of dollars on production costs.

And the FFmpeg app is completely free— it’s open-source software. And you can run it on a new or old computer.

Why is FFmpeg so amazing?

Let’s say you have a video that is in landscape format and you want to convert it to portrait.

What most people do is import the video into a video editing program, like Adobe Premier, Davinci Resolve, or iMovie, make some adjustments, and then republish. It’s pretty easy, no problem.

But what if you have several videos to edit? What if you have dozens of videos? What if you have hundreds or thousands of videos?

Now it’s a problem.

You’ll have to grind through hours and hours of time trying to repeat the process or spend hours trying to learn about special scripting features that may or may not be available in your video editing app.

That’s what we used to do – until we discovered FFmpeg.

With FFmpeg, we can copy and paste the command we need – then boom let it run.

Hundreds of videos can be processed at the same time with just a few keystrokes.  We can walk away and come back when it’s done. Or move the window to the background while we work on other tasks.

Scripts That Are Ready to Use

In this course, we have collected the most commonly needed video processing functions. And we provide you with the exact commands that you can copy and paste.

We also include an explainer video for every command to make it super-easy to understand.

We’ve Done All the Work For You

It took us a lot of time and effort to research, test, and organize the content for this course. Because, when you first look at FFmpeg, it’s very intimidating.

There’s no nice user interface to make it easy.  And most people who use FFmpeg tend to be highly technical, so the few guides and YouTube videos that are available on the Internet are not easy to follow.

This is why most people have never even heard of FFmpeg — and why they are missing out on its amazing features.

We’re both engineers who’ve been in the tech industry for over 25 years and it took us a lot of time to figure it all out.

But you don’t have to.  We’ve made it so easy with step-by-step instructions, that you’ll be processing your first video within 30 minutes or less. We even designed the course so you don’t have to go through all of it. You can pick and choose the commands you need whenever you need them.
