After using Telegram on iOS, I quickly realized how much I missed being able to watch WebM files on the go. Thanks to drama around Google ditching Apple's WebKit, it's very likely that Apple devices will never support WebMs natively, so I built this bot.
- Converts WebMs to MP4
- Works in Group Chats
Install nodejs, npm, and ffmpeg to your system.
Create a Telegram bot using their official docs.
Copy .env.sample to .env and paste your API key there. You may also want to edit the default file size limit of 10MB.
Converting videos is very CPU intensive. When using Heroku's free tier, it took 15 seconds to convert a small webm file. Your results will vary depending where you host this. I recommend hosting it locally.
