This is a tutorial for Pi's like the Raspberry Pi Zero V1.3 (without "W" for Wifi). This setup is for use with a Mac computer

  1. Connect to a Raspberry Pi Zero with a USB Cable and SSH.
  1. Share Internet Between macOS and a Raspberry Pi Zero Over USB.
ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev
ssid="Your WiFi network name"
psk="Your WiFi network password"
1. Check that your Raspberry Pi actually has a WiFi Module built in :-)
2. Check your wpa_supplicant.conf File in /boot directory (Here's an example file:
- formatting (no whitespace around the equal signs)?
- country code correct?
- typos?
- windows line endings are problematic
3. Check your Router settings
- Is a MAC Filter active?
- 2.4GHz or 5GHz? Raspberry Pi Zero will only work with 2.4GHz
- Is the SSID hidden? If yes, then you need to add scan_ssid=1 to the network settings in wpa_supplicant.conf File

#Crazy strong compression
ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -vcodec libx265 -crf 28 output.mp4
#Compression recommended for Vimeo, Youtube etc (Note the mkv extension)
ffmpeg -i -c:v libx264 -preset slow -crf 18 -c:a aac -b:a 192k -pix_fmt yuv420p output.mkv
