The video component of the Signbank app

Documentation

The full documentation is at https://signbank-video.readthedocs.org.

Quickstart

Install signbank-video:

pip install signbank-video

Then use it in a project:

import video

You must define the following variables in settings.py:

  • FFMPEG_PROGRAM = "/usr/bin/ffmpeg
  • FFMPEG_TIMEOUT = 60
  • FFMPEG_OPTIONS = ["-vcodec", "h264", "-an"]
  • VIDEO_ASPECT_RATIO = 3.0/4.0

These variables control ffmpeg, a program that the video app requires and uses for extracting a frame from a video (a frame is a thumbnail). You can download it here: https://www.ffmpeg.org/download.html. The value of FFMPEG_PROGRAM on my system is /usr/bin/ffmpeg, but on your system it might be different; it all depends on where the installer puts the ffmpeg executable.

Your must also define these following variables in settings.py:

  • VIDEO_UPLOAD_LOCATION = "upload"
  • GLOSS_VIDEO_DIRECTORY = "video"
  • MEDIA_ROOT = os.path.join(os.path.dirname(os.path.abspath(__file__)), media)

MEDIA_ROOT is the root directory for your media, so for the video app it’s the root directory for all of the videos. VIDEO_UPLOAD_LOCATION, and GLOSS_VIDEO_DIRECTORY are directories inside of MEDIA_ROOT that contain user uploaded videos, and videos of each sign, respectively.

You must also define these following variables in settings.py:

  • LANGUAGE_NAME = "Auslan"
  • COUNTRY_NAME = "Australia"
  • SITE_TITLE = "Signbank"

Finally, you must also add video to the INSTALLED_APPS variable of settings.py.
