Hi, Tze.

I would recommend FFmpeg.  This is the back end to many video websites
and applications, with many modern codecs.  It is available as a command
line video processing kit.  http://www.ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg.html

Since this works on Linux from the command line, you will be able to use
it with qsub and a bash script to a job queue, ala a Beowulf / HPC

I'm currently looking at a solution to launch an object detection app on Host, with the GUI running on Host and the compute nodes doing all the video processing and analytics part. I see this solution is similar to my approach but I couldn't find any information on how to setup. May I know where to more info about this? As I googled, Cinelerra is a video processing editor, which has nothing to do with clustering. Can you guide me on this? Appreciate your help.
