Timecode

Build Status

A pure, dependency free, XSLT 1.0 library for video timecode manipulation.

Supports

  • Any frame rate
  • Drop/nondrop frame timecodes
  • Arithmetic
  • Conversions: to/from drop/nondrop, timecode to/from frames
  • Formatting
  • Field extraction

Usage

Setup the timecode namespace:

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
  xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
  xmlns:tc="http://screenstaring.com/xslt/timecode">

Import (or include) the stylesheet:

<xsl:import href="/path/to/timecode.xsl"/>

Examples

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
  xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
  xmlns:tc="http://screenstaring.com/xslt/timecode">

  <xsl:import href="timecode.xsl"/>

  <!-- Returns: 1800 -->
  <xsl:variable name="frames">
      <xsl:call-template name="tc:to-frames">
          <xsl:with-param name="timecode">00:00:01:02</xsl:with-param>
	      <xsl:with-param name="drop-frame" select="true()"/>
      </xsl:call-template>
  </xsl:variable>

  <!-- No need to set $drop-frame if the timecode has a drop frame delimiter (";" or ".") -->
  <!-- Returns: 1800 -->
  <xsl:variable name="frames">
      <xsl:call-template name="tc:to-frames">
          <xsl:with-param name="timecode">00:00:01;02</xsl:with-param>
      </xsl:call-template>
  </xsl:variable>

  <!-- Returns: 00:30:22:14 -->
  <xsl:variable name="timecode>
      <xsl:call-template name="tc:from-frames">
          <xsl:with-param name="frames">54674</xsl:with-param>
	      <xsl:with-param name="fps">29.97</xsl:with-param>
      </xsl:call-template>
  </xsl:variable>

  <!-- Returns: 02:00:00:00 -->
  <xsl:variable name="sum">
      <xsl:call-template name="tc:add">
          <xsl:with-param name="timecode1">01:59:59:29</xsl:with-param>
          <xsl:with-param name="timecode2">00:00:00:01</xsl:with-param>
      </xsl:call-template>
  </xsl:variable>

  <xsl:variable name="product">
      <xsl:call-template name="tc:multiply>
          <xsl:with-param name="timecode">00:10:59:02</xsl:with-param>
	      <xsl:with-param name="by">2</xsl:with-param>
          <xsl:with-param name="fps">24</xsl:with-param>
	  </xsl:call-template>
  </xsl:variable>

  <!-- Extract the minutes -->
  <!-- Returns: 10 -->
  <xsl:variable name="minutes>
      <xsl:call-template name="tc:minutes">
          <xsl:with-param name="timecode">00:10:21;22</xsl:with-param>
      </xsl:call-template>
  </xsl:variable>

Known Issues

  • Under Saxon, to-frames returns a value in scientific notation

Templates

Overview

Frames Per Second (FPS)

Unless specified when calling a template frames per second defaults to 29.97. This can be changed globally by setting default-fps.

Drop Frame

All drop frame arguments default to false(). If the drop frame parameter is not set and the timecode's frame delimiter is "." or ";" the timecode will be treated as drop frame.

Arithmetic

Templates return "NaN" on error. This is a string and should not be confused with the XPath numeric type of NaN. On success the resulting timecode is returned.

add

Parameters
  • timecode1 - Left operand, required
  • fps1 - timecode1's frames per second
  • drop-frame1 - Set to true() if timecode1 is drop frame
  • timecode2 - Right operand, required
  • fps2 - timecode2's frames per second
  • drop-frame2 - Set to true() if timecode2 is drop frame

divide

Parameters
  • timecode - Numerator, required
  • by - Denominator, required. This is a numeric value, not a timecode
  • fps - Frames per second of timecode

multiply

Parameters
  • timecode - A timecode to multiply, required
  • by - Value to multiply timecode by, required. This is a numeric value, not a timecode
  • fps - Frames per second of timecode
  • drop-frame - true() if timecode is drop frame, defaults to false()

subtract

Parameters
  • timecode1 - Left operand, required
  • fps1 - timecode1's frames per second
  • drop-frame1 - Set to true() if timecode1 is drop frame
  • timecode2 - Right operand, required
  • fps2 - timecode2's frames per second
  • drop-frame2 - Set to true() if timecode2 is drop frame

Conversion

convert

Convert a timecode's frame rate, format, or to/from drop frame.

  • timecode - Timecode to convert, required
  • fps - timecode's frames per second
  • drop-frame - Set to true() if timecode is drop frame
  • to-fps - Frames per second to convert timecode to
  • to-drop-frame - Convert timecode to drop frame
  • delimiter - String use to delimit the hours, minutes, and seconds in the resulting timecode, defaults to ":"
  • frame-delimiter - String use to delimit frames in the resulting timecode, defaults to ":"

to-frames

Converts the given timecode to frames.

Parameters
  • timecode - Timecode to convert, required
  • fps - timecode's frames per second
  • drop-frame - Set to true() if timecode is a drop frame
Returns

On success the frame representation of the timecode. On error an empty string.

Parsing/Formatting

hours

Extract the hours part from the given timecode.

Parmeters
  • timecode - Timecode to extract hours from, required
Returns

On success the hour part of timecode. On error an empty string.

minutes

Extract the minutes part from the given timecode.

Parameters
  • timecode - Timecode to extract minutes from, required
Returns

On success the minute part of timecode. On error an empty string.

seconds

Extract the seconds part from the given timecode.

Parameters
  • timecode - Timecode to extract seconds from, required
Returns

On success the second part of timecode. On error an empty string.

frames

Extract the frames part from the given timecode.

Parameters
  • timecode - Timecode to extract frames from, required
Returns

On success the frame part of timecode. On error an empty string.

from-frames

Create a timecode from the given number of frames.

Parameters
  • frames - Frames to create a timecode from, required
  • fps - frames frames per second
  • drop-frame - Set to true() if frames are drop frames
  • delimiter - String use to delimit the hours, minutes, and seconds in the resulting timecode, defaults to ":"
  • frame-delimiter - String use to delimit frames in the resulting timecode, defaults to ":"
Returns

On success a timecode. On error an empty string.

Validation

valid

Check if the given timecode is valid

Parameters
  • timecode - Timecode to validate, required
Returns

"true" if timecode is valid, "false" otherwise. Note that this is a string and not an XPath boolean as returned by true() or false().

About

This library is a port of the Perl Time::Timecode module, though it does not (yet) implement all of Time::Timecode's functionality.
