FFmpeg/FFprobe for AWS Lambda

A Lambda layer containing a static version of FFmpeg/FFprobe utilities from the FFmpeg Linux package, compatible with Amazon Linux 2.x and Amazon Linux 1.x instances (including the nodejs10.x runtime, and the updated 2018.03 Amazon Linux 1 runtimes).

Usage

Absolutely the easiest way of using this is to pull it directly from the AWS Serverless Application repository into a CloudFormation/SAM application, or deploy directly from the Serverless Application Repository into your account, and then link as a layer.

The ffmpeg and ffprobe binaries will be in /opt/bin/ after linking the layer to a Lambda function.

For more information, check out the ffmpeg-lambda-layer application in the Serverless App Repository.

For manual deployments and custom builds, read below...

Prerequisites

  • Unix Make environment
  • AWS command line utilities (just for deployment)

Deploying to AWS as a layer

This package includes FFmpeg 4.1.3, packaged by John Van Sickle. Please consider supporting him for maintaining statically built FFmpeg packages. For more information, check out https://johnvansickle.com/ffmpeg/

The output will be in the result dir.

Run the following command to deploy the compiled result as a layer in your AWS account.

make deploy DEPLOYMENT_BUCKET=<YOUR BUCKET NAME>

configuring the deployment

By default, this uses ffmpeg-lambda-layer as the stack name. Provide a STACK_NAME variable when calling make deploy to use an alternative name.

example usage

An example project is in the example directory. It sets up two buckets, and listens to file uploads on the first bucket to convert and generate thumbnails from uploaded video files. You can deploy it from the root Makefile using:

make deploy-example DEPLOYMENT_BUCKET=<YOUR BUCKET NAME>
