FFMpeg to the rescue

For web publish I needed to downsample several videos, since they were way too large to use in banners. So this post is just for me to remember what I did. I was sure this could be done by the terminal and yes I managed to shrink a 250MB file to 29MB, which was way over my expectations and without any dramatic changes in quality. This of course depends on what kind of video it is. If there are mostly interviews it should be fine.
