FFMPEG and Shell Script Customization

FFMPEG and Shell Script Customization


Job Description

We have an existing FFMPEG script, on a Linux based server, that we would like customized by extracting the various parameters and converting them into variables in the command. Then, we would need a shell script created would take the command and replace the variables with the parameter values given by the administrator through a web-based form. Also, the shell script must dynamically set the source and destination filenames for the command before it runs.

In addition to the manipulation of the script and the contained parameters, the shell script would handle the requests sent to the PHOP application in order to retrieve the next conversion task in queue, and return the result of the conversion (success or failure)

This first project would be for the modification of a single script. Upon successful completion of this project, we would create a second project in which the same task is needed for a number of other scripts.

Once we agree on a project price, we would like to begin immediately.
