FFmpeg wrapper for python

Project description

pyffmpeg | Downloads

FFmpeg wrapper for python. It uses the most up-to-date FFmpeg binary to provide both FFmpeg and FFprobe functionality. So you can kill two birds with one stone.

The beautiful thing about this is that it comes with it's own FFmpeg executable. It is compressed, making it the smallest one you can find. Becuase it's cross-platform and python 3, it is the only option available for building cross-platform apps with ffmpeg in python.

FFmpeg Version

Uses current FFmpeg version


pip install pyffmpeg



from pyffmpeg import FFmpeg

inp = 'path/to/music_folder/f.mp4'
out = 'path/to/music_folder/f.mp3'

ff = FFmpeg()

output_file = ff.convert(inp, out)



Provides FFprobe functions and values

from pyffmpeg import FFprobe

input_file = 'path/to/music.mp3'
fp = FFprobe(input_file)


will print

> 00:04:32:32
