Test Video Maker

Recently I've been working on a very simple JS video slideshow. The only thing technically interesting about it is the order in which it plays back videos. I have some rough unit tests, but to demo that it's working correctly to the client, sometimes its nice to show it actually running the way they've asked you to make it.

Generally this involves me hunting around the internet for webm videos, and then trying to remember which order I've uploaded them while we wait for the slideshow to move through its queue and insert new videos into the correct spot.

I don't know why it's taken me so long, but finally I knocked together this little command line utility so I can make webm videos that have some text in them so I can easily label them with ordinals.

I'll add support for other formats and sizes, but it's easy enough to grab the code and alter it to get this working for you.
