Recently I have refurbished my HTC Re Camera, an old instant camera, because I wanted to make some videos. The results were very devastating: I discovered that I have a shaky hand! Fortunately there are FFmpeg and vid.stab that helped me to stabilize them. In this post I explain how to install this plugin and use it, then showing two comparison videos.
How many time we have to fix a video removing the parts that we don’t need? There are a lot of video editing programs that solve this elementary issue, including great open source ones, but generally they require to process the video and audio streams and so a lot of resources. FFmpeg and the command-line can cut and join the video in four steps copying the same video and audio codec even on a MP4 video encoded in h.264 and AAC.
