Is there some sort of ffmpeg completion or some sort of bash/zsh completion for ffmpeg ?

shirish
Hi there,

I filed https://trac.ffmpeg.org/ticket/8462 but perhaps there is a
better way of doing it. At times it becomes difficult to scroll
through all the swtiches hence it would be nice if there was a
bash-completion/zsh-completion script/s which would help achieve the
same without minimum of fuss.

Is there something that somebody knows which provides similar
functionality. I know I can make aliases and all but this would be
more convenient if something like this exists.

Given the complexities of ffmpeg's command set, not to otherwise mention all
of the muxer/codec/filter options, that's a rather huge undertaking (if
rationally possible at all).

It might be easier to create clean output from the command parser showing
input files & options, the filter graph (bonus for including graph2dot), and
the output & options. Verbose logging might do that (can't check at the
moment), but will have other info to clutter up the output. (Or maybe a
script to extract the interesting parts from the verbose logging.) Maybe
I'll look into this in my "spare" time.

Or just read the mailing list.

Later,
