I created this software because there was no good alternative. If you want to see what videos you have on an external hard drive, and you want to see screenshots from within the video, this software has you covered.
It now has over 900 purchases, so seems like other people like it too.
Thank you for sharing! I wish more people were transparent about money (to know what's possible). In my example, I created Video Hub App that sells for $5 (and $3.50 goes to a cost-effective charity). I'm averaging about $500 for over a year now (with almost $15,000 donated to charity). https://videohubapp.com/ & https://github.com/whyboris/Video-Hub-App (MIT open source). - Source: Hacker News / about 1 month ago
Awesome tool! Thank you :) May be a nice complement to my Video Hub App - browse, search, preview, and organize videos on Win, Mac, and Linux. https://videohubapp.com/ & https://github.com/whyboris/Video-Hub-App. - Source: Hacker News / about 2 months ago
I chose Electron for the app I was building because it would make sure the app I create (1 code base with Angular) would perform exactly the same way on Mac, Windows, and Linux. It required virtually no learning of anything new (just look up some Electron API like "minimize window") and I was done. https://videohubapp.com/ & https://github.com/whyboris/Video-Hub-App As a single developer, I was able to get... - Source: Hacker News / 6 months ago
Marketing is hard. I have a personal charityware project Video Hub App that I've tried to promote. The most sensible place seems like Reddit, but even when posting to a fitting subreddit, my posts sometimes get taken down because you're not allowed to "self promote". Which means there is almost no avenue I can find. I had success with my first post of the app on HN, but it feels rude to re-post it to HN... - Source: Hacker News / 7 months ago
This is a bit of a tangent perhaps, but for video organization you could try Video Hub App - software I wrote: https://videohubapp.com/ - it also has functionality to find duplicate videos. - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago
My commercial project Video Hub App is nearly free: https://videohubapp.com/ It's a Gatsby website and I used to use Vercel with their free deployments, but because I also needed a subdomain with PHP I switched to my cheap $3/month (unlimited website) webhost to serve the static files; but I also use Cloudflare for their free CDN. And the app demos are hosted on GitHub through Releases.... - Source: Hacker News / 9 months ago
Thank you for the answer. This is precisely my use case: I am using FFmpeg in my software to generate screenshots from videos. - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago
Huge thank you to FFmpeg -- it's the core of my app's functionality: extract screenshots and show them to users in a neat gallery. Specifically - it can with 1 command line argument grab a dozen or two (user choice) screenshots at even intervals (my choice) and stitch them together into one long horizontal jpg file (adding black bars if ratio isn't what I want). AMAZING! Video Hub App -... - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
