ffprobe-static-electron

The module returns a file path to the binary for the target operating system.

It is a modified version from the original ffprobe-static to use electron-builder file macros in package.json, where OS name are maclinux or win

In ffprobe-static, recognising the target OS is done with os.platform() where mac os x is recognised asdarwin rather then mac.

The need to tailor ffmpeg-static to use with electron-builder came from a use cases such as that of autoEdit.io.


Static binaries for ffprobe. OSX only at the moment, please send a PR if you would like to help with adding support for other platforms.
