I have finally overcome myself and made some videos again. They are arena 3 games as they came. I uploaded a few but there are more in the queue which I will release in the next days bit by bit.
This was quite some work for "low effort videos". I wrote a script which generates the jump marks in the youtube descriptions from the video editor file. So I at least don't have to do that by hand. Note that only the first video has the player names in the description yet (as this is a pain in the ass doing this by hand; I cannot do that automatically yet)
Any suggestions how to improve these videos are appreciated. Also please let me know if you see insulting chat.
However I have not found a good way to get the player names automatically. (For the CF2 quickplay videos i pulled the game results from the cf website, but that is not an option anymore)
What I have already tried to get the player names:
Since it is an HTML5 game i thought I could run a tempermonkey script which pulls the player names from the DOM. But as it turns out everything is drawn on a canvas with no obvious way to extract the data from the DOM.
The other thing I tried was I wrote a script which saved the video to images with ffmpeg. I cropped these images and ran ocr on these snippets. The results however were very unreliable.
If anyone has an idea how I can get the player names without typing them by hand I would be glad.
