Convert webm to mp4
There's an upcoming Mozilla trip to Hawaii on the cards and, in trying to be a good family man, I'm bringing my wife and two young sons. Glutton for punishment? Probably. Anyways, I've been feverishly downloading cartoons from YouTube using youtube-dl to put onto our new iPad to keep my oldest son occupied during the long flight.
It seems as though YouTube preserves the original video format, since sometimes youtube-dl provides a webm and other times a mp4. Since mp3s are iOS' best friend, I've needed to convert the webm files to mp4. The following ffmpeg command will make that happen:
ffmpeg -i "Spider-Man.webm" -qscale 0 "Spider-Man.mp4"
qscale 0 directive instructs ffmpeg not to adjust quality of the video during conversion. And with this conversion I can now properly transfer the videos onto my iPad.

As much as developers now loathe Flash, we're still playing a bit of catch up to natively duplicate the animation capabilities that Adobe's old technology provided us. Of course we have canvas, an awesome technology, one which I highlighted 9 mind-blowing demos. Another technology available...
You've probably been to sites like RapidShare and MegaUpload that allow you to download files but make you wait a specified number of seconds before giving you the download link. I've created a similar script but my script allows you to animate the CSS font-size...
A few months back I posted an article about how you can use your own "missing image" graphics when an image fails to load using MooTools and jQuery. Here's how to do the same using Dojo.

This Grease adds a “convert” video to Youtube. Everything is processed on their server and it’s pretty fast !
What about using the
--list-formatsargument with youtube-dl and download the MP4 that suits your needs?
Suggested code doesn’t work (10/22/17), Ubuntu 16.04.3 amd64
“The encoder ‘aac’ is experimental but experimental codecs are not enabled, add ‘-strict -2’ if you want to use it.”
It now says “Please use -q:a or -q:v, -qscale is ambiguous”.
-q:v 0would be the new substitute.
