Welcome to the Future Red blog. It is our aim to use this blog to document challenges – and solutions – that we have come across in the realm of digital media platforms, and perhaps a little beyond. We hope that in turn these discussions will be useful to other developers and creative people out there.
I’m relatively new to proper blogging, so I hope you’ll forgive me while I try to find my voice in this medium. I’m torn between my innate disposition to use relatively formal language whenever I publish words, and trying to use a more colloquial writing style that’s actually fun to read. Using words like colloquial probably doesn’t help.
Very soon I’ll kick this column off with a look at getting a meaningful progress bar out of the fantastic ffmpeg.
