Can somebody help me encode a 1920 × 1080 mp4 so that it's just 1080 x 1080? I.e., I need a square video. I found great instructions on this site yesterday and it work ... but now I can't repeat the process and can't seem to find the original tips. Thanks.

Shopping for yams or sweet potatoes? Print this small and laminate, then keep in your wallet. Then you'll always be prepared, even if the produce manager at your local grocery store has mislabeled the bins.

If you're an Ellen fan, or a sweet potato fan, this post is for you. If you're a yam fan, it will probably make you angry, so just move along. Nothing to see here.
