A progress bar for ffmpeg. Yay !
Not smart. Not comprehensive. Not guaranteed to work.
ffpb is an FFmpeg progress formatter. It will attempt to display a nice progress bar in the output, based on the raw ffmpeg output, as well as an adaptative ETA timer.
(yes, my laptop can’t encode shit)
ffpb is is not even self-aware. Any argument given to the ffpb command is transparently given to the ffmpeg binary on your system, without any form of validation. So if you know how to use the FFmpeg CLI, you know how to use ffpb !
Using as a library
ffpb can be used as a library: use the ffpb.main function:
ffpb.main(argv=None, stream=sys.stderr, encoding=None, tqdm=tqdm):
- The arguments to pass to ffmpeg, as an argument list.
- The stream to which to write the progress bar and the output messages.
- The encoding of the terminal, used to decode the ffmpeg output. Defaults to locale.getpreferredencoding(), or UTF-8 is locales are not available.
- The progress bar factory to use. A subclass of tqdm.tqdm is expected. Check althonos/ffpb#19 to see how you can use this to wrap ffpb in your own UI.
Install from PyPI:
$ pip install --user ffpb
Alternatively, download a development version from the GitHub master branch:
$ pip install https://github.com/althonos/ffpb/archive/master.zip
Or if you use an Arch-based distro, download from the AUR
