A simple Python wrapper around ffmpeg

Project description

ffmpy is the simplest ffmpeg wrapper one can imagine. Under the hood it uses Python’s subprocess module to run ffmpeg exeutable. Input can be specified as a file path as well as sent to STDIN via ffmpeg’s pipe protocol. Same for output - it can be written to a file or sent to STDOUT.


Installation is as simple as running:

~$ pip install ffmpy


ffmpy resembles the command line approach ffmpeg uses. It can read from an arbitrary number of input “files” (regular files, pipes, network streams, grabbing devices, etc.) and write into arbitrary number of output “files”. See ffmpeg documentation for further details.
