I think it's not too much of a waste if I repeat here two simple tricks with in order to upload audio as video to mastodon:

1) test-tv image/animation:

ffmpeg -f lavfi -i testsrc -i AUDIOFILE -shortest OUTPUT.webm

2) album cover or similar:

ffmpeg -loop 1 -i IMAGE.png -i AUDIOFILE -s 200x200 -shortest OUTPUT.webm

* with -s WWWxHHH you can adjust the size/resol. of the video

* instead of webm you can safely use mp4 as output extension - it will create an mp4 with x264/aac codecs

Found a few comments on other alternative platforms sharing concerns about #Mastodon's federated structure

A common point: the federation sees instances created for users with common interests/ideology, possibly setting precedent for even tighter echo chambers + aggressive behavior between instances over ideology clashes

Working with new Behringher X18 Air mixer and audio interface. Tried for the first time to connect via USB, just run jackd and I was able to record from the mic input into .

Had little trouble to find the right IO matrix in control app on the tablet but once I assigned it correctly I could use it as output too.

the new album by Ochre, Project Caelus, is fantastic. Synth-forward, huge, lush. Not really ambient but not really beat music either -- just a whole lotta synth love:

(my favorites are Tugrul, Magic Torus, and Steel Arc)

Yes, some of us may be strong enough to resist, revolt against, and maybe even overthrow an unjust system and replace it with something fairer. Others may not be and that does not necessarily make them complicit.

That’s not to say that some shortsighted fools will not side with the oppressor against their own long term best interests. But the one thing we must not do is blame the victims. Nothing infuriates me as strongly. It is salt rubbed into the wound of inequality and injustice.

In the small town of Riverton at the bottom of New Zealand’s South Island is Robert and Robyn Guyton’s amazing 23-year-old food forest. The 2-acre property has been transformed from a neglected piece of land into a thriving ecosystem of native and exotic trees where birds and insects live in abundance....
