Using ffmpeg on RCC Resources

Using ffmpeg on RCC resources requires the gnu module to be loaded. In order to run ffmpeg on RCC systems, simply type ffmpeg -OPTIONS -i INFILE OUTFILE. Where the -OPTIONS denote a list of global options for the program run and the INFILE and OUTFILE both represent the input file and output file along with any options to be applied to the input and/or output files independently. In order to see a full list of options and usage documentation, please refer to the ffmpeg documentation.  The ffmpeg suite also contains a number of other tools as well including ffmpeg-all, ffplay and others.  Information on the usage of these can also be found at the ffmpeg documentation.
