This tool is integrated into so many commercial products without getting much acknowledgement. It has a steep learning curve but with a few simple example searches it can replace nearly all video and some image manipulation paid apps.

This is at the core of many video editing/transcoding applications.

CLI editors for videos and images are insane or very special purpose.

FFmpeg is not exception.

My thoughts exactly: "a CLI tool for media editing / conversion? are you insane?!"

But, after trying a whole bunch of apps with disappointing results, I started using this CLI insanity and figured out how powerful & downright convenient it can be...

And then there's the fact that this CLI tool in particular is the brains behind almost all GUI apps for media editing / conversion / streaming / playing... so yeah, color me a fan.
