Hi everyone
How do I get the mp4 from this?

You can use "basename" to get, well, the base name without the rest. Well,
the rest is considered the path, because "extensions" do not exist in
Linux :-p

But it can remove an extension if it is known in advance. And what you
want is getting the extension, right?

I want only whatever is after the last .
Thanks. I'll have a go with basename but I'd rather do it direct.
