Wish more people posted here lol, but anywho I rewrote the script in AutoHotkey for any of you windows users out there. But instead of compressing the same file over and over, why not Progressively compress segments of the video more than the other instead???
This one splits video and uses segments of 5 seconds each and also removes keyframes for seamless segment transitions: https://p.ahkscript.org/?p=535a4a29
This one splits the video into individual frames and compresses each one, makes for some really unique artifacts: https://p.ahkscript.org/?p=e79e020b
More to come c:
