How to convert flv file to Theora : best practices
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 11, 2011
I already posted this message on the General Help forum, but I'm afraid it's more for this one.
I have a video file in the .flv format, which I would like to convert in the Theora (.ogv) format (I prefer free open source format ).
For that I type this command in the terminal :
ffmpeg -i myfile.flv myfile.ogv
The video and audio streams are correctly identified, but the conversion takes a very long time and the resulting file in Theora is very heavy. Moreover, when I play it, the audio quality is okay (I don't notice any difference with the original) but the video quality is terrible .
I would like to know if I may get better results by using additonal options to the in the ffmpeg command and what are the recommended best pratices in this kind of work.
Virtualized file server best practices?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 9, 2013
I would like to set up a virtual file server, but I have no idea where to even start. Everything I can find on Google involving a SAN, whereas in my case the disks will be directly attached to the host.
[SOLVED] How to convert binary file to ascii file?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 16, 2009
Hello linux experts!
I have a question about binary files. I've googled the problem, but didn't find anything useful so I figured I'd ask here...
I have a binary file (extension .bin) that I would like to convert to ascii somehow. The data in the binary file is 32bit float numbers. I've done the conversion so far by reading the file into matlab as float32, then saving it as ascii resulting in a file with a nice column of numbers. I have a lot of these binary files, so I figured there must be a better way to do this directly in linux! I run centOS 5.3.
Any ideas? Many thanks!

Best practices for file permissions (var/www)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 31, 2011
Hello there everyone,
I'm pretty new to the Linux scene but I'm already in love with Kubuntu.
I've still got a learning curve to go before I'll be happy and just have 1 or 2 questions about file/folder permissions.
There are lots of tutorials and opinions on file permissions and web hosting.
So lets say I wanted to allow write permissions to the /var/www folder.
which would be best practice?
Chown -R user... allow a specific user to have write capabailities.
use gksudo nautilus (unsure what this does)
or open the folder to all parties.
If anyone has any opinions on file permissions in general or web hosting security then feel free to throw them at me.
Question about Samba and best practices for a Linux file server.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 2, 2010
I have Samba working. Have been getting into Linux in the last week and a half. I can set it all up, and configure everything without a GUI. However, I am having a couple issues that are annoying me.
1. Do Samba users have to be Linux users? I would assume so because of permissions on folders in Linux, but I am not positive.
2. I log in as root and create 4 directories in /home to act as shares. Music, Movies, Text, Random. The problem is none of the users on the Windows computers can write to the folder unless I do the following; Chmod it to 777(the Windows users fall under the "other" category, the last 7), or chown it over to the group "users", which is the group I put everyone who can access the file server. The problem with this is I can't allow them to read, write and execute unless I allow everyone to by using 777, or make the group users the owner of the file.
How would I go about allowing Root to be the owner of the file, but give the group use
