    Good resource for begining to advanced video information?

      Hey there! I've been a visual artist for a long time working mostly in photography. I'm getting more and more into video now but the more I learn the more questions I have. There are terms being thrown around on this forum like encoder, codec and muxer. It frustrates me because I have no idea what these things are and how they are related to other concepts in video production.

      Can anyone recommend a resource (book or website) that has explains the technical concepts of video from a beginning to advanced level? Id like to know what a codec is and how different codecs affect the video I'm working on. Bonus points if it also goes into detail on aspect ratio, pixel aspect ratio, digital and analog sound, framerates, and any other technicalities of video production.
