Bash for Archivists
Playing a Bash script as a video file: ffplay -loop 0 script.txt
Two years ago, Reto Kromer prepared a Bash programming course for audio-visual archivists of the SEAPAVAA community, but finally could not hold it, because of health problems. COVID-19 gives us now a good reason to offer an expanded flavour of the course as a series of webinars. Joshua Ng from the Archives New Zealand is co-leading the sessions.
We believe that the only way to really learn scripting is to write scripts, therefore lessons and hands-on will alternate. The examples are mainly focussed on FFmpeg automation techniques, but also other open-source tools are considered.
The webinars are free, but a registration was required … which is now closed.
