I have two tasks to be completed quickly. Programmer should know linux & basic scripting.
1) Download this test page from youtube: [url removed, login to view],24&search_query=hello
I need a script (bash or perl), which will extract basic video information from the saved html page. For example, video url, video title, uploaded by, etc. You can output a CSV file or preferably mysql statements to dump in a database table.
2) See this page: [url removed, login to view]
ffmpeg is a tool that can be used on linux. Using some command line options, it can be used to extract frames of a video (specific frame number, or specific time, etc). Write a bash/perl script, that will extract all frames in a given video file. The frames should be stored per minute and per second. That is, say the video is 5 minutes long. then create folders 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 inside each of them, create folders named 0 to 59 (for seconds). All frames of a video (count=fps) to be stored in corresponding folder. This is an easy task (no video knowloedge is required, you dont need experience with ffmpeg). Just study the syntax and you have to write appropriate for-loops).
I will select the lowest bid from someone who can work today.
