Download and install ffmpeg, cross-platform.

Project description

Simple python module/standalone script to download and install the latest (static binary) release of FFmpeg from different sources. You can find the links to these sources on the official homepage of FFmpeg.

Supported systems are Linux, OS X and Windows. Currently armv7 and armv8 architectures are only available for Linux systems.

System (architecture) Source
Linux (64-/32bit, armv7, armv8) https://johnvansickle.com/ffmpeg
OS X (64-/32bit, PPC) http://evermeet.cx/ffmpeg and http://www.ffmpegmac.net
Windows (64-/32bit) https://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com

Quick run!

In a hurry or feeling lazy? Run one of these oneliners to download and execute the latest binary release. No python needed.

Linux and OS X:
# Using cURL
curl https://git.io/vDdvo | sudo bash

# Using wget (not installed by default on OSX)
wget -O - https://git.io/vDdvo | sudo bash
Windows:

At the moment windows users are stuck with downloading and running the latest binary file manually (as admin). But not for long!

Installation

Using pip: sudo pip install -U dlffmpeg

or pip with git: sudo pip install git+https://github.com/iwconfig/dlffmpeg.git

From source code:
git clone https://github.com/iwconfig/dlffmpeg.git

Usage

getFFmpeg() contains all options, e.g.:
from dlffmpeg import getFFmpeg
dl = getFFmpeg()
dl.path = '/path/to/dir'
dl.silent = True
dl.pretty = True
dl.verbose = False

Execute with dl.run()

Standalone takes one argument for custom path or no argument for default.
~/ $ dlffmpeg --help
usage: dlffmpeg.py [-h] [-s] [-lv] [-p] [--version] [path]

specify installation path. no path equals to default path.

positional arguments:
  path

optional arguments:
  -h, --help           show this help message and exit
  -s, --silent
  -lv, --less-verbose
  -p, --pretty
  --version            show program's version number and exit

Todo

  • Use logging module instead
  • Ability to compile and install from source, cross-platform
  • Better module support

I am certain my code needs better perspective and from what this script represent i’m currently not capable of comprehending better principles. Please feel free to fork and improve. :)
