Author's summary: Hwaet! I sing of those immortal heroes: The Tall Detective and The Shorter Man.
Now tall Sherlock, called the genius, sees the parsley in the butter,
cries Oh! and soon declares the answer. He knows the killer, has deduced it;
and John Watson, called the doctor, whose gun is sure, whose hands are steady,
cries to him in admiration, hails him Brilliant and Fantastic.
Reccer's remarks: Merripestin has been recced here before, and with good reason, what with the splendid writing and the general versatility. "Now advance they" absolutely slays me, and it may slay you too if you meet either of the following conditions: (1) you have ever studied Old English and/or Old Norse poetry; (2) you have backbuttoned out of one too many fanfics in which Sherlock is referred to as "the taller man"/"the dark-haired detective"/"the tall slender baby deer" and John is "the shorter man"/"the sandy-haired man"/"the clumsy typist." During a sex scene.
Condition 1, if you do not already meet it, may sound like a chore, but take a quick look at this lovely riddle-poem. Yes, this rec reflects an attempt to lure you into not only merripestin's delightful fic/poem/thing but also to one of my favorite literary genres.

FFmpeg is a powerful tool for manipulating audiovisual files. Unfortunately, it also has a steep learning curve, especially for users unfamiliar with a command line interface. This app helps users through the command generation process so that more people can reap the benefits of FFmpeg.
Each button displays helpful information about how to perform a wide variety of tasks using FFmpeg. To use this site, click on the task you would like to perform. A new window will open up with a sample command and a description of how that command works. You can copy this command and understand how the command works with a breakdown of each of the flags.
FFmpeg is a free, open source tool that works on the command line and lets you do stuff like:
- Change codecs (transcode)
- Change formats
- Filter stuff
- Create GIFs and thumbnails
- Normalize/equalize audio
- Read/extract captions
- Make test patterns
- Fix audio that's fallen out of sync
- Join or split files
- Play an image sequence
I have used FFmpeg recipes in the past and it's great how much it can do, especially in combination with youtube-dl which makes it easy to download video from a ton of sites -- YouTube, SoundCloud, Vimeo, and many others. I hope other vidders find ffmprovisr helpful in their work!
