The Broadcaster Project, revisited

One year ago today, I first published a link to The Broadcaster Project, a site which had several tips on using command line tools such as ffmpeg to assemble videos. I use a similar technique to do my more recent videos: I take the raw footage from the camera and resize it, denoise it, and add some overlaid text before uploading it to YouTube. Revisiting The Broadcaster Project, I see they have a few more recipes that can be useful, such as ones for assembling time lapse movies and the like. I also found a reference to youtube-upload, a command line python script that can automatically upload videos from the command line, a part of my process that I still did with the web interface.
