Rough script that waits until processes finish their businesses, then exit

Posted 06-15-2015 at 04:17 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

The processes are given as a single variable, thus one must use quotes if there's more than one process to wait for.

Usage example:

./waitprocs "lame avconv sox tar" && self-destruct

My previous attempt with a "counting" system didn't work, so I've tried a different approach. For any given process, it will check if it's running, if it is, it creates a temporary file with its name on a temporary work folder; if it isn't, it...

youtube-dl says bye bye to ffmpeg

Posted 06-11-2015 at 05:36 AM by jheengut

I use the python program youtube-dl almost on every website to download videos legally.

There have been/are some website whereby the protocol used is not understood by youtube-dl.

So a more powerful program such as ffmpeg is used if it can parse the particular stream. Advantage of ffmpeg was that the command used was simple to use and the ability to modify the options were easy. But its greatest problem was that it could not resume the download and had to start from...
