Goffmpeg

Codacy Badge

FFMPEG wrapper written in GO which allows to obtain the progress.

V2

New implementation with an easy-to-use API and interfaces to extend the transcoding capabilities.

Dependencies

Supported platforms

  • Linux
  • OS X
  • Windows

Getting started

How to transcode a media file

go get github.com/xfrr/goffmpeg
package main

import (
    "github.com/xfrr/goffmpeg/transcoder"
)

var inputPath = "/data/testmov"
var outputPath = "/data/testmp4.mp4"

func main() {

	// Create new instance of transcoder
    trans := new(transcoder.Transcoder)

	// Initialize transcoder passing the input file path and output file path
    err := trans.Initialize( inputPath, outputPath )
    // Handle error...

	// Start transcoder process without checking progress
	done := trans.Run(false)

	// This channel is used to wait for the process to end
	err = <-done
	// Handle error...

}

How to get the transcoding progress

...
func main() {

	// Create new instance of transcoder
    trans := new(transcoder.Transcoder)

	// Initialize transcoder passing the input file path and output file path
    err := trans.Initialize( inputPath, outputPath )
    // Handle error...

	// Start transcoder process with progress checking
	done := trans.Run(true)

	// Returns a channel to get the transcoding progress
	progress := trans.Output()

	// Example of printing transcoding progress
	for msg := range progress {
		fmt.Println(msg)
	}

	// This channel is used to wait for the transcoding process to end
	err = <-done

}

How to pipe in data using the pipe protocol

Creating an input pipe will return *io.PipeReader, and creating an output pipe will return *io.PipeWriter. An example is shown which uses cat to pipe in data, and ioutil.ReadAll to read data as bytes from the pipe.

func main() {

	// Create new instance of transcoder
    trans := new(transcoder.Transcoder)

	// Initialize an empty transcoder
    err := trans.InitializeEmptyTranscoder()
    // Handle error...

	// Create a command such that its output should be passed as stdin to ffmpeg
	cmd := exec.Command("cat", "/path/to/file")

	// Create an input pipe to write to, which will return *io.PipeWriter
	w, err := trans.CreateInputPipe()

	cmd.Stdout = w

	// Create an output pipe to read from, which will return *io.PipeReader.
	// Must also specify the output container format
	r, err := trans.CreateOutputPipe("mp4")

	wg := &sync.WaitGroup{}
	wg.Add(1)
	go func() {
		defer r.Close()
		defer wg.Done()

		// Read data from output pipe
		data, err := ioutil.ReadAll(r)
		// Handle error and data...
	}()

	go func() {
		defer w.Close()
		err := cmd.Run()
		// Handle error...
	}()

	// Start transcoder process without checking progress
	done := trans.Run(false)

	// This channel is used to wait for the transcoding process to end
	err = <-done
	// Handle error...

	wg.Wait()
}

Progress properties

type Progress struct {
	FramesProcessed string
	CurrentTime     string
	CurrentBitrate  string
	Progress        float64
	Speed           string
}

Example

func main() {

	// Create new instance of transcoder
	trans := new(transcoder.Transcoder)

	// Initialize transcoder passing the input file path and output file path
	err := trans.Initialize( inputPath, outputPath )
	// Handle error...

	// SET FRAME RATE TO MEDIAFILE
	trans.MediaFile().SetFrameRate(70)
	// SET ULTRAFAST PRESET TO MEDIAFILE
	trans.MediaFile().SetPreset("ultrafast")

	// Start transcoder process to check progress
	done := trans.Run(true)

	// Returns a channel to get the transcoding progress
	progress := trans.Output()

	// Example of printing transcoding progress
	for msg := range progress {
		fmt.Println(msg)
	}

	// This channel is used to wait for the transcoding process to end
	err = <-done

}

Example with AES encryption :

More information about HLS encryption with FFMPEG

# Generate key
openssl rand 16 > enc.key

Create key file info :

Key URI
Path to key file
func main() {

	trans := new(transcoder.Transcoder)

	err := trans.Initialize(inputPath, outputPath)

	trans.MediaFile().SetVideoCodec("libx264")
	
	trans.MediaFile().SetHlsSegmentDuration(4)

	trans.MediaFile().SetEncryptionKey(keyinfoPath)

	progress := trans.Output()
	
	err = <-done
}
