Timo’s procmail tips and recipes
I find most of the other documentation difficult to wrap my head around. This with it’s abundance of examples is great!
So.. I have finally released ITJ on SourceForge.net.
With support from Konscious and Manhattan Neighborhood Network we have packaged and uploaded the latest version and it can be downloaded at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/itv-ism/.
YouTube – Broadcast Yourself.
Hmmn.. This could be very interesting..!
“YouTube is excited to offer APIs to the developer community. Using our APIs, you can easily integrate online videos from YouTube’s rapidly growing repository of videos into your application. The APIs currently allow read-only access to key parts of the YouTube video respository and user community.”
A couple of days ago I got FFMPEG working to automatically generate FLV video files for OpenVlog. Today I finally got thumbnails generating correctly. Here are the commands:
This creates a JPEG:
ffmpeg -i inputfile -t 0.001 -ss 1 -vframes 1 -f mjpeg -s 320×240 outputfile.jpg
This creates a QT Movie that I am using as a reference movie (just one frame of video):
ffmpeg -i inputfile -t 0.001 -ss 1 -vframes 1 -vcodec mpeg4 -an outputfile.mov
I got this working with lots of help from the following pages:

Extracting JPG Frames Using FFmpeg and mjpeg Parameter

At this session at Vloggercon 2006, I presented the video comments plugin which this video is using.. Check it out. Click on “Watch Video” after the jump. (Warning, the video is long and big)
Where.com – WHERE Mobile 2.0 API
From the site:
The WHERE Mobile 2.0 API allows developers to add mobile pictures and mobile video clips to web sites with a few simple steps
Very similar to what I have been planning on doing with my Video and Image Moblogging with a (video enabled) Camera Phone Scripts
FMJ – Freedom for Media in Java
From the site:
FMJ is an open-source project with the goal of providing a replacement/alternative to Java Media Framework (JMF).
JMF is still dead in the water, despite some folks from Sun making a little bit of noise a couple of months back. Let’s hope this effort keeps it going.
Google Cleans Ajax for Java
Very interesting.. Will have to give it a shot..
From the article:
The Google Web Toolkit (GWT) released this week is a framework that converts a standard Java application into Ajax that will work in all browsers.
Series 60 Python tools, Including the very useful push (Python Utility Shell). Can’t wait to give it a shot (too bad it isn’t for Java ;-) Perhaps Mobile Processing will do something similar)
