How to speed up a video

Once again, ffmpeg on the command line has come to the rescue. With this method, I was finally able to do something that I thought should be a simple task: take this input video and output a video that consists of one of every X frames instead of every frame.

I can’t believe how much time I spent today trying to properly construct a trivial, meaningless 45-second video.
