It took awhile, but the first review of my book, Learn to Produce Videos with FFmpeg: In Thirty Minutes or Less, is up on Amazon. Here’s the key comment.
“Everything here is already available on the net. But this is much easier. Worth the price just to have it all in one place. Easy to read and understand. Does not go into depth on all ffmpeg options, just covers what most of us need to do.”
The review also accurately points out that, “If you bought “Video Encoding by the Numbers: Eliminate the Guesswork from your Streaming Video” then you do not need this book. “Learn to produce…” is a subset “by the Numbers”..” I probably should add that to the marketing materials.
The review is only four stars because the reader couldn’t access the downloadable batch files promised with the book. That’s because I changed ISPs after publishing the book and couldn’t get the same email address included in the book. I changed the book description with my publisher to include a new email address in the marketing materials (see the book description on Barnes and Noble) but Amazon didn’t pick it up.
If anyone buys the book and wants the files, please email me at [email protected] I made the same offer to the reviewer on Amazon, and I’m hoping for a bump to five stars.
