Video stabilisation with the command line

work in progress....

There is a lot of fluff out there to do with mlt, we do not want to use mlt.

looks like we need a special version of ffmpeg compiled and installed. the macports version just done not have the vidstab features

No ports this time we are building from source. :)

download vid.stab source from github

get ffmpeg source from by downloading a snapshot.

we are going to compile a version that has all the bells and whistles. 

./configure --enable-gpl --enable-libvidstab --cc=/usr/bin/clang --prefix=/Users/tessus/data/ext/ffmpeg/sw --as=yasm --extra-version=tessus --disable-shared --enable-static --disable-ffplay --enable-gpl --enable-pthreads --enable-postproc --enable-libmp3lame --enable-libtheora --enable-libvorbis --enable-libx264 --enable-libx265 --enable-libxvid --enable-libspeex --enable-bzlib --enable-zlib --enable-libopencore-amrnb --enable-libopencore-amrwb --enable-libxavs --enable-libwavpack --enable-version3 --enable-libvo-aacenc --enable-libvo-amrwbenc --enable-libvpx --enable-libopus --enable-libmodplug --enable-fontconfig --enable-libfreetype --enable-libass --enable-libbluray --enable-filters --disable-indev=qtkit --disable-indev=x11grab_xcb --enable-runtime-cpudetect


yeah, lots of options. we want  --enable-libvidstab

scratch building from source, get this binary....

all failed,, will come back to this another time. 

next step use above binary on a non prores clip.


right found another possible solution to explore....
