Build latest ffmpeg and all (generally) needed codecs from source

ffmpeg

In projects where you need to work with video data - converting video files or creating frame screenshot preview for a video, convert mp3 etc. it is very likely you will decide to use ffmpeg.
It is open source and free lib that is de-facto standard tool to operate with media files. But in Linux repositories it is often outdated version of ffmpeg and to get most recent features you'd better compile it from source. It is not a trivial things to get all needed dependencies, that's why I have gathered it all in one bash script.

Learning Node.JS

Collection of free resources to dive into Node.js.

I prefer quite small, useful and clear articles/books (and I would not be so clever to post official docs links here, I hope you have already found it and know what to do in case of emergency :)).
I'll try to order it from very basic to more sophisticated, so if you don't know where to start... just start from the very beginning of the list.

@cebe : I think we can close this issue now. I am done with all the system I know and can support as I am going to work with them on a regular basis. Others should be provided as extensions or by other core developers. If someone wants to start working on an implementation of an AR feel free to contact me, I can help with that.
