Luigi pipeline to download VoxCeleb audio from YouTube and extract speaker segments

Project description

# voxceleb-luigi [![pypi version](](

Luigi pipeline to download VoxCeleb audio from YouTube and extract speaker segments.

This pipeline can download both [VoxCeleb]( and [VoxCeleb2](

## Installation

pip install voxceleb_luigi

You need to have ffmpeg and youtube-dl installed. On systems with apt, you can simply run:

sudo apt install ffmpeg youtube-dl

## Usage

Download and unpack at least one of the metadata directories with the YouTube URLs and timestamps (VC1 [dev]([test](, VC2 [dev]([test](

Start luigid, the central scheduler:

luigid –background

Then start the worker process:

luigi –module voxceleb_luigi
–workers 4 voxceleb.ProcessDirectory –path /path/to/metadata

The pipeline will recursively search /path/to/metadata for the segment files (by looking for files called like 00001.txt etc.), download the audio of their source videos, and extract the speaker segments.

By default, the segment audio files are stored in parallel to the metadata in directories called wav that get created next to the txt directories. Suppose you have the metadata of the dev and test sets of VoxCeleb1 in ~/vc1 with paths looking like ~/vc1/dev/txt/idX/videoX/XXXXX.txt. If you pass --path ~/vc1 to the pipeline, segments will end up in ~/vc1/dev/wav/idX/videoX/XXXXX.wav. Other output of the pipeline (full audio of videos, soft failures, dummy outputs for completed directories) are stored in ./voxceleb-luigi-files by default.

## Configuration

Both the location where the dataset gets created and the storage directory for the pipeline can be changed through parameters in the luigi.cfg (default location is the current working directory; you can override this via the LUIGI_CONFIG_PATH environment variable):

[voxceleb.Config] # Required output_dir=/where/to/store/wav/segments pipeline_dir=/where/to/put/pipeline/stuff

## Only necessary if youtube-dl, ffmpeg, and ffprobe are not in your PATH: #ffmpeg_bin=/ffmpeg-dir/ffmpeg #ffmpeg_directory=/ffmpeg-dir # passed on to youtube-dl via –ffmpeg-location #youtube_dl_bin=/path/to/youtube-dl

[voxceleb.ProcessDirectory] ## alternative to the –path command line option #path=/path/to/metadata

When output_dir is set, the directory structure of the metadata is mirrored in this directory. In this case, the txt directories are not replaced by wav, but removed from the path.
