To think that 99% of video on the web today is possible because of FFmpeg is mind blowing.

I'm not sure about that 99%. But I agree, for conservatives, FFmpeg is mind blowing.

For me, it's magical!

So.. many.. cats!

How so?

Pretty much any video site your can think of (Youtube, Vimeo, DailyMotion...) is possible via FFmpeg (which re-encodes the videos).

Chrome also bundles FFmpeg.
