Useful Blog Management Code

tl;dr: Code for me to use to not have to look stuff up on Stack Overflow when I am writing posts for this blog. More than you might expect! Like for converting images from PNG to JPG for web optimization.

Convert MOV to Gif, Get good speed and optimize file size. Takes some time

Note: This seems to actually increase file size sometimes!

ffmpeg -y -i Omnibot\ v40-cropped.mp4 -vf "scale=800:450" -f image2pipe -vcodec ppm - | convert -delay 2 -loop 0 -layers Optimize - gif:- | gifsicle -d 3 -O3 -o optimized.gif
