No canned responses.
We have a small (one file) linux bash script, that converts and rotates uploaded .3gp files into .flv (ffmpeg, mencoder etc.) and put in production folder.
The orginal programmer did a bad job and used lot of timers. It becomes buggy with little big 2-3 mb files or with few of uploads at a time.
Looking for very Experienced linux programmer, to rewrite the logic and remove the timers, it should be able to 'Stack' the job queue and process in the order. Right now, it converts gp3 to avi to get a thumbnail and then avi to flv. This process is bad and should be eliminated. It should directly convert 3gp to flv and take a thumb. Our current programmer who is on vacation now, said there are some old binaries of ffmpeg/mencoder installed in the server.
It should be a quick job for someone who lives in linux programming.
We need this very urgent and expect to pay a quick $20.
Top of your bid add - 'I've read the details carefully and worked with ffmpeg, mencoder and related codecs before'.
