FFmpeg via Docker

I have previously written about using FFmpeg to convert H264 into MP4, running in a Docker container.

Running desktop applications in Docker negates the need to install anything, and isolates processes more effectively than something like Brew would. I needed to use FFmpeg again this week, and so spent a little bit of time setting it up properly - using Docker. Jessie Frazelle wrote a post in 2015 named Containers on the Desktop that was the inspiration for doing this.
