Logger

You can put it in “config/initializers/web_video.rb”.

logfile = File.open(Rails.root.join('log', 'video.log'), 'w')
logfile.sync = true

WebVideo.logger = Logger.new(logfile)

Usage

Read video information

video = WebVideo::Adapters::FfmpegAdapter.new('demo.avi')

video.filename # => "demo.avi"

video.duration # => "00:03:39.90"

video.bitrate  # => "2624 kb/s"

video.duration_in_seconds # => 219

video.streams  # => Array of streams
  # [ #<WebVideo::Stream @codec="mpeg4", @type="Video", @details="yuv420p, 640x480 [PAR 1:1 DAR 4:3], 30 tbr, 30 tbn, 30 tbc">, 
  #   #<WebVideo::Stream @codec="mp3", @type="Audio", @details="44100 Hz, stereo, s16, 128 kb/s">]

Video Convertation

transcoder = WebVideo::Transcoder.new("demo.avi")

or

transcoder = WebVideo::Transcoder.new(video)

Transcoder attributes

transcoder.adapter # => :ffmpeg

transcoder.source  # => return WebVideo::Adapters::FfmpegAdapter instance (video)

Generate flv file. Next example will generate “demo.flv” from “demo.avi”.

options = {:resolution => "480x360"}

begin
  transcoder.convert("demo.flv", options) do |command|
    command << "-ar 22050"
    command << "-ab 128k"
    command << "-acodec libmp3lame"
    command << "-vcodec flv"
    command << "-r 25"
    command << "-y"
  end
rescue WebVideo::CommandLineError => e
  WebVideo.logger.error("Unable to transcode video: #{e.class} - #{e.message}")
end

Generate images from video By default screenshot starts at '00:00:01', to change it pass option :at => '00:05:00' (at five minutes) Or you can pass :at => :center, to get screenshot from video center

transcoder.screenshot("demo.jpg", :resolution => "480x360", :at => :center)

Next code will generate five images: demo_01.jpg, demo_02.jpg, demo_03.jpg …

image_files = 'demo_%2d.jpg'
options = {:resolution => "480x360", :count => 5 }

begin
  transcoder.screenshot(image_files, options) do |command|
    command << "-vcodec mjpeg"
    # The duration for which image extraction will take place
    #command << "-t 4"
    command << "-y"
  end
rescue WebVideo::CommandLineError => e
  WebVideo.logger.error("Unable to transcode video: #{e.class} - #{e.message}")
end

TODO

  1. Add adapter for support 'mencoder' tool

  2. More information about video file (class Stream must parse details)

  3. Add support for 'flvtool2'

  4. Write more documentation

  5. Write tests
