The other day I wanted to move away from the Apache httpd server to Nginx. It was not that Apache did not do the work, but the lower the footprint of a service the more you can have running on a single server / cloud instance. And if I would get a peek of traffic I will have more "power" to give.
Today I needed to convert an ogv file to an avi file. I found this script after a quick search in the web. But for some reason mencoder did not work for me. It was cutting the video. A big mess. So I changed it with ffmpeg and all is good.
