This is still a work in progress. This package still lacks a lot of the libav's functionality. Please expect many additions/changes in the future.
I am aware of other Go language bindings for ffmpeg. The reason I decided to build go-libav was because I wanted to have:
- A more Object-Oriented Programming approach.
- A more Go-like approach to error handling.
- Easier garbage collection.
First, install ffmpeg 3.x libraries on your system.
If you need ffmpeg2.x support, use ffmpeg2 branch (deprecated).
Then, open the terminal and install the following packages:
go get -u github.com/imkira/go-libav/avcodec go get -u github.com/imkira/go-libav/avfilter go get -u github.com/imkira/go-libav/avformat go get -u github.com/imkira/go-libav/avutil
For advanced usage, make sure to check the following documentation:
Please check here for examples.
This library supports multiple versions of FFmpeg 3.x, to build, use
go build -tags ffmpeg33 go test -tags ffmpeg33 go run -tags ffmpeg33 examples/mediainfo/mediainfo.go
ffmpeg30 for FFmpeg 3.0 API,
ffmpeg33 for FFmpeg 3.3 API.
