This project extracts frames from video recorded by iPhone 3Gs 
using the LGPL FFmpeg libraries.

This software is licensed under the GNU-LGPL version 2.1 or later.

To compile and run the project on your iPhone:

   1. open Terminal
   2. clone the repository: git clone git://github.com/lajos/iFrameExtractor.git
   3. go to the ffmpeg folder in the project: cd iFrameExtractor/ffmpeg
   4. build the ffmpeg libraries: ./build_universal
   5. open the xcode project and run it on your iPhone device

The build_universal shell script creates libraries that work on both armv6 and armv7 processors. If you need libraries for pre-3Gs devices (iPhone 2g, iPhone3G, iPod Touch), use the build_armv6 script. For iPhone 3Gs only libraries, use build_armv7.

iFrameExtractorAppDelegate creates an instance of VideoFrameExtractor (the class that grabs images from the video). When you press the play button, iFrameExtractorAppDelegate sets up a loop and displays all the images from the video until it reaches the end of the movie.

The VideoFrameExtractor class is based on Martin Böhme’s tutorial, upgraded to use swscale. Initialize this class with the full path of the movie:

VideoFrameExtractor *video = [[VideoFrameExtractor alloc]
               initWithVideo:@"/full/path/to/movie.mov"];

By default, the output size will match the movie’s size. You can set outputWidth and outputHeight to change the dimensions:

video.outputWidth = 426;
video.outputHeight = 320;

Use stepFrame to grab the next frame. This method returns false if there are no more frames (reached the end of video):

BOOL result = [video stepFrame];

The processed frame can be accessed as a UIImage on the currentImage property:

UIImage *myImage = video.currentImage;

You can seek to a specific time (in seconds) using the seekTime: method:

[video seekTime:1.0];

The movie’s length can be queried by checking the duration property:

NSLog(@"video duration: %f",video.duration);
