Hear ye, hear ye, fediverse!
With @milia we worked for a few days on a small web project and we are happy to share it with you today!
It's called Souvenir ~
The principle is simple: you can capture a few seconds of your camera and it generates a gif.
It's a mix between Polaroid and the magic photos from Harry Potter!
❖ Now let’s make souvenirs (and share them if you want 👀)
@pierreozoux On va regarder ça, je t'avoue que je connais pas du tout. (also on a setup des services worker pour mettre en cache l'appli et aussi permettre qu'elle fonctionne hors-ligne, c'est déjà ça)
@tixie c'est giga génial !!!
@ankhZero Dev et design sous proges :D (bon on aura vu plus efficace xD)
I didn't see this info available on site itself. Perhaps consider including it there in an "about" page?
@tixie wait, so transcoding from mp4 to animated GIF is done with a js library?
I just had a thought and I think you'd might be the right people to know if it possible at all:
would it be possible to write that kind of js app as souvenir but that you give it audio file and it would return some kind of video/animation together with that audio? Would that kind of multimedia muxing be too hard to write?
@luka @tixie Yes, audio/video on the web is actually possible BUT this is not something trivial. The only viable way is to use a dedicated library like ffmpeg to do things like that but this is a huge load for an web app.
For example, ffmpeg compiled with only few formats support (10MB+) is already more than 40 times the actual total size of Souvenir. This is why we'll likely not support anything apart gif because this is deadsimple to encode and so doesn't require huge dependencies.
