Help with Terminal Script

Recommended Posts

Hi, have a file action to convert gifs to mp4 using ffmpeg:


ffmpeg -f gif -i {query} -pix_fmt yuv420p -c:v libx264 -movflags +faststart -filter:v crop='floor(in_w/2)*2:floor(in_h/2)*2' ~/Desktop/converted_file.mp4

This works perfectly with the terminal command but I want it to run it as a script so it doesn't opens a terminal window.  Do I have to change anything? The way it it's not working.


Thanks in advance for your help!

You probably need to use the full path to ffmpeg, e.g. /usr/local/bin/ffmpeg, instead of just ffmpeg.


Thats it! I tried with "/usr/local/bin/ffmpeg" before but didn't worked. Turns out my path is "/usr/local/Cellar/ffmpeg/3.4/bin/ffmpeg".


Thank you!
