Someone complaining that they can’t view an Apple .MOV file on your Nextcloud server? No surprise considering ‘apple is apple’.
Heard about the cool app ‘Video Convertor’ for Nextcloud? Tried to install it and use it and got that ‘requires ffmpeg error?
Turns out it’s pretty easy to to get it going and here is how:
Let’s do it.
- ssh into your Nextcloud box. In my case it’s a nextcloudpi box if that matters…
- type this into the command line:
sudo apt install ffmpeg
- Hit your enter key
- Wait a long time while a seriously large amount of stuff installs (and probably this is why it’s not installed by default)
- Go back to your video file in the Nextcloud in the browser user interface and note the three dots on the right side of the file name. Click that
- Select the video icon ‘convert into’
- Choose your options for speed and format
- Do it.
- Wait again (a lot of waiting here…)
- Create a new share of the newly created video file
- Test the file (good practice) by sending the share to yourself in a browser that you don’t use so you are seeing what your recipient will see without your login credentials affecting things.
- All good? Ship the new link to your recipient
Hope that helps
I’ve seen a lot of documentaries, a lot of conspiracies, a lot of interesting things.
Nothing comes close to the importance and relevance of this one.
I don’t usually blog videos but dang. This one is just world class. Enjoy this, but think about the following, too:
- it’s the most profitable coffee business on the planet besides Starbucks instant coffee Via
- You are pumping hot liquid through cheap plastic. Would you brew coffee through your water bottle? I LOL in your general direction
- Would you store your ground coffee in a plastic container? Then…???
- The new brewers hold you hostage to their crappy roasts. Lawsuit? Someone?
- You are freaking lazy. Just admit it.
