• Understanding multimedia frameworks

• Employing ffplay to view multimedia files

• Utilizing ffprobe to analyze and create reports of multimedia files

• Building batch files to automate the multimedia analysis process

• Applying ffmpeg to transcode multimedia files into an acceptable container
