Usage

Encoding files as videos

fvid -i [input file] --framerate 1 -e
fvid -i [input file] --password "wow fvid is cool" -e

Windows

py -m fvid -i [input file] -e
py -m fvid -i [input file] --framerate 1 -e

Retrieving data from videos

If the file was encoded with a non-default password, it'll prompt you to enter the password upon decoding.
