Created this simple encoder script while trying out daala


  • Select file
  • Number of frames to skip
  • Number of frames to encode
  • Uncompressed y4m output file
  • Lossless png file from daala encode (uses y4m file from dump_video)
  • Lossless png file from source
  • Linux Bash Version
  • and by unpopular demand a Batch Version for Windows


  • encoder expects y4m, so you need to ffmpeg -pix_fmt yuv420p -i any-source-video.webm output.y4m
  • ffmpeg needed for png frame extracting

Install Linux

cd daala/examples/


chmod +x


Install windows


copy to daala folder

Run it


  • Need to figure out why echo says its off on windows
  • Inputing nothing into frames/encodeframes on windows fails, need to figure that out
  • Perhaps more options to say yes or no, but this works for me

pretty simple with tc command
login to router with ssh/telnet

where wl0.1 is the ssid of your guest network.
will vary if you have configured more than one

to limit to 5mbit

tc qdisc add dev wl0.1 handle 1: root htb default 11

tc class add dev wl0.1 parent 1: classid 1:1 htb rate 5mbit

tc class add dev wl0.1 parent 1:1 classid 1:11 htb rate 5mbit

to remove the settings use
tc qdisc del dev wl0.1 root

Note: Only downstream, i have to figure out upstream :(
You might need to enable jffs and add them to /jffs/scripts/init-start to be presistent

Crop Real 4K to UltraHD 4096>3840

ffmpeg -i A001_C014_01217G.4k.y4m -vf "crop=3840:2160:128:0" outputgirl.2160p.y4m

Resize to 1080p

ffmpeg -i outputgirl.2160p.y4m -vf scale=1920:-1 outputgirl.1080p.y4m

Resize to 720p

ffmpeg -i outputgirl.2160p.y4m -vf scale=1280:-1 outputgirl.720p.y4m

Convert source to YUU4MPEG2

ffmpeg -pix_fmt yuv420p -i any-source-video.webm output.y4m

Convert a sequence of images to YUU4MPEG

ffmpeg -f image2 -i "A004_C001_0122K7.00%05d.png" -pix_fmt yuv420p ouput.y4m

extract a single frame

ffmpeg -i input.avi -f image2 -ss 14.342 -vframes 1 frame.png

extract a single frame (altenative method)

ffmpeg -i input.y4m -f image2 -vf select="gte(n\, 1)" -vframes 1 frame.png

extract 1 frame after frame 100

ffmpeg -i input.y4m -f image2 -vf select="gte(n\, 100)" -vframes 1 frame.png
