BackgroundRB FFMPEG

why will ffmpeg not output my video??

class VideoWorker < BackgrounDRb::Rails
  def do_work(args)
        video = Video.find(args[:video_id])
        video.processing_status = 1
        video.save

        system("ffmpeg -i #{video.public_filename} -b 256k -vcodec
h264 -acodec aac ~/Desktop/movie.mp4")

        video.processing_status = 2
        video.save
  end
end

Nevermind forgot RAILS_ROOT

I will also suggest you to upgrade the BackgrounDRB version. May be 1.0.1 .

Hi, It seams you are working on site similar to youtube. Kindly share
your experience on following:

1) Where you store the files (database or file system)
2) How can we manage the storage if thousands of videos gets uploaded
every day
3) Which player you are using to stream the video

Just trying to learn how youtube manages their traffic
