One of my passions is playing old retro computer games, these can be found over at my other site Retro Gas
Whenever I add a new game, I always try to provide a small video and screenshots of the game for users visiting the site.
As you can imagine, getting just one game listed on the site is quite a task. When I first started adding games to my site, I needed a way to grab screenshots from the video I recorded.
After much searching and lots of trial and error, I found a software package for Linux called ffmpeg.
ffmpeg is cross platform solution to record, convert and stream audio and video. You can visit the main ffmpeg site here
As I use an Ubuntu based distribution, I first needed to install the package.
To install ffmpeg enter the following command in the terminal
