22 Always have a backup. ;-)
23 I deny any responsibility for data loss. :-P
25 If you want to try it before doing real stuff: you could comment the two
26 lines where it says 'mv -f' and 'rm -f'. Then it won’t do anything, but
27 there are still progress messages being printed.

33 I use ffmpeg for all my encoding stuff, and have been using wrapper scripts
34 for years now to make things easier. However, none of them has resized yet.
35 It’s not difficult to configure, but the wrapper needs much more logic. As
36 in: find out the current resolution, see if it is actually larger, then
37 calculate the new resolution while keeping the aspect intact and so on.

41 I know handbrake by name, have been aware of it for many a year, but never
42 used it. In my Windows days I used VirtualDub for my editing stuff, and on
43 Linux I’ve always used commandline tools, beginning with mencoder back in
44 the day.
