ffplay-gtk-1.9 for all porteus versions

Try this line [found with the help of a search engine] ;)

Code: Select all

ffplay -vf "drawtext=text='%{pts\:hms}':box=1:x=(w-tw)/2:y=h-(2*lh)" video.mp4
But to be honest, I'm not motivated to spend more time on it. -- :book:

ffplay-gtk-1.9 for all porteus versions

There is a possibility to show the play time ffplay -vf "drawtext=text='%{pts\:hms}'..+ box window parameters. But the filter "drawtext" is not included in the ffmpeg build. (port 3.2.2) maybe in your version. check with ffmpeg -filters | grep -i drawtext btw from terminal use ffplay -autoexit -hide...

There is only a link leafpad.svg to accessories-text-editor.svg which is the (bad) icon you see. If you select the Paper icon theme (for Exam...

Howto: Popular AppImages one click away
