FLV

A Ruby library for parsing FLV files and metadata sections.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem "flv"

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install flv

Usage

flv = FLV.read("path/to/your/video.flv")
flv.audio? # => true
flv.video? # => true

data_tag = flv.tags.find { |tag| tag.is_a?(FLV::Tag::Data) }
data_tag.duration # => 60.0
data_tag.frame_rate # => 30.0

The FLV gem also supports streaming parsing, so you can handle tags as they arrive from an I/O stream.

This is useful for pulling metadata out of FLV videos without having to download the whole lot:

flv = FLV.new(io)
data_tag = flv.each_tag.first
io.close
