This command extracts the audio from a video file and puts it in a MP3 file. Ffmpeg automatically works out the right codecs to use from the output file extension, in this case it's MP3.

ffmpeg -i VIDEOFILE OUTPUTFILE.mp3

If you wish to do the same with ann OGG file, you have to specificy that you want audio only, you can do this with the -vn argument.

ffmpeg -i VIDEOFILE -vn OUTPUTFILE.ogg

In today's bonus video, I demonstrate how I completed the first elusive target on Hitman™ 2.
"Sean Bean will star in the first Elusive Target mission in HITMAN 2. He will take on the role of Mark Faba, a former MI5 agent notoriously known as The Undying due to his reputation as a master of faking his own death."

In today's video, I share my first impressions playing Hitman™ 2 through Proton and Steam Play.

From the Hitman™ 2 website, "HITMAN 2 brings you 6 brand new sandbox locations to plan out the perfect assassination. Hugely complex environments provide you with endless opportunities to take out your targets in creative ways.

"Only in HITMAN can you use everything in your environment to help plan and execute the perfect assassination. Use stealth, sabotage and everything in between to turn your creativity into a deadly weapon.

"HITMAN 2 not only includes a brand new campaign, but also new missions, the high-stakes Elusive Targets and more free live content that gives you new ways to test your killer creativity."

In today's video I share my experience using Linux Mint Debian edition as my daily driver over the past few weeks.
Available from https://linuxmint.com/download_lmde.php

Linux Mint Debian Edition as described by the Linux Mint website "Its main goal is for the Linux Mint team to see how viable our distribution would be and how much work would be necessary if Ubuntu was ever to disappear. LMDE aims to be as similar as possible to Linux Mint, but without using Ubuntu. The package base is provided by Debian instead.

"There are no point releases in LMDE. Other than bug fixes and security fixes Debian base packages stay the same, but Mint and desktop components are updated continuously. When ready, newly developed features get directly into LMDE, whereas they are staged for inclusion on the next upcoming Linux Mint point release."

"The Nokia 3310 is a GSM mobile phone announced on 1 September 2000, and released in the fourth quarter of the year, replacing the popular Nokia 3210. It sold very well, being one of the most successful phones with 126 million units sold worldwide, and being one of Nokia's most iconic devices. The phone is still widely acclaimed and has gained a cult status due to its durability.

"Several variants of the 3310 have been released, including the Nokia 3315, 3320, 3330, 3350, 3360, 3390 and 3395.

"A new mobile phone based on the iconic 3310 design was launched in 2017. The new Nokia 3310 model comes with a comprehensive update over its predecessor with a 2.4" colour display, a 2MP rear camera and a microSD slot." From the Nokia 3310 Wikipedia page.

In today's video I chat about fixing up an old laptop using Linux. With the help of MX Linux, a somewhat lightweight Linux distribution, I managed to extend the life of this old Advent 5311. The full specs for it can be found at http://www.uktsupport.co.uk/advent/laptop/5311.htm

"MX Linux is a cooperative venture between the antiX and former MEPIS communities, using the best tools and talents from each distro.

SimpleScreenRecorder as described by its website, "SimpleScreenRecorder is a Linux program that I've created to record programs and games. There were already a few programs that could do this, but I wasn't 100% happy with any of them, so I created my own."

My original goal was to create a program that was just really simple to use, but as I was writing it I started adding more and more features, and the result is actually a pretty powerful program. It's 'simple' in the sense that it's easier to use than ffmpeg/avconv or VLC, because it has a straightforward user interface."

"Manjaro is a user-friendly Linux distribution based on the independently developed Arch operating system. Developed in Austria, France, and Germany, Manjaro provides all the benefits of the Arch operating system combined with a focus on user-friendliness and accessibility.

"Manjaro uses a Rolling Release Development Model, whereby rather than being replaced, the same core system will instead be continually updated and upgraded. As such, it is not – nor will it ever be – necessary to re-install a later release of Manjaro in order to enjoy the very latest and most up-to-date system possible. By virtue of keeping an existing installation updated, it is already the latest release." From the Manjaro Linux website.

In today's video, I take a look at KDE Neon, an Ubuntu based Linux distro running the latest and greatest KDE apps.

From the KDE Neon website, "You should use KDE neon if you want the latest and greatest from the KDE community but the safety and stability of a Long Term Support release. When you don't want to worry about strange core mechanics and just get things done with the latest features. When you want your computer as your tool, something that belongs to you, that you can trust and that delivers day after day, week after week, year after year. Here it is: now get stuff done."
