FFMPEG and Vidstab

As a complete newbie, I'm lost here.
I want to use the Vidstab feature of FFMPEG but I can't find
any trace of it.
I installed FFMPEG from the Software Manager.
Can someone tell me if Vidstab is even available in version
of FFMPEG that I installed?

I'm running Mint Cinnamon 19.1 here.
Thanks guys.

A: Is it possible to hook a USB cable between two desktop computers, both running Mint 19.1 and transfer files between the two computers using the USB cable? B: Same question, but between a Mint computer and my o...

Re: Hidden hard drive?

SOLVED! It turned out that the SSD drive had never been assigned a drive letter under Win10. So I assigned it a letter and ZINGO! There it was. And it was empty, never used. Can't imagine why someone did that. (the computer came to me used from a business) Anyway, I then put the Mint disk in and cli...

How to join .MOV videos?

Mint 19.1 Cinnamon
I have several .mov video clips that I'd like to join into one continuous video.
Is there any easy way to do this without getting into a full video editor, like maybe from the command line?
Thanks guys.

Re: Why is Firefox starting with a small window?

I've been having the same problem.
Ever since the last upgrade, Firefox opens in a narrow window.
And I have it set to 'remember history'.

Re: ClipGrab doesn't grab anymore

Thanks guys.
I've installed youtube-dl, but I have some reading to do before using it.
The list of command line options is quite extensive and I'm a bit slow
on the uptake, if you get what I mean.
Thanks again.

But the last few days it seems that every time I try to use it, it comes back with a long string of characters followed by "Forbidden Error Code 403". What the...

New Firefox problem

I installed available updates yesterday, which I believe included Firefox.
Now, when open Firefox, it opens in a small window instead of full screen
the way it did before.
I can't figure out how to get it to open full screen.
Help?
Thanks guys.

Re: Download YouTube videos

Clip grab has been working pretty well for me too.
Sometimes I'll get a "forbidden" error, but when I
close it and re-open it, it will work fine.

Re: Free IP forwarding services?

Thank you for that!
I saw a couple that I'd never heard of before.
I had previously used No-IP, but it became a pain
to sign in and confirm every month or lose my
forwarding.
Thanks again.

Free IP forwarding services?

I know about "no-ip.com" and a couple of others.
But do you know of any FREE ip forwarding services that I might not?
Do you use one? If so, what is your favorite?
Thanks guys.

Firefox annoyance? [SOLVED]

Upon opening a new tab in Firefox, I have the choice of seeing a blank page, or Firefox's home page.
Is there a way to change this, maybe in "about:config" so that I can see MY home page when
opening a new tab?
Thanks guys.

Re: Too many file managers

Cancel the alert.
I just found what I wanted under "preferences/desktop".
I removed three of the icons and added the trashcan.
Much neater.
