Projects / FFmpegPHP


FFmpegPHP is a pure OO PHP port of the ffmpeg-php wrapper. It adds an easy to use, object-oriented API for accessing and retrieving information from video and audio files. It has methods for returning frames from movie files as images that can be manipulated using PHP's image functions. This works well for automatically creating thumbnail images from movies. It is also useful for reporting the duration and bitrate of audio files (MP3, WMA, etc.). It can access many of the video formats supported by ffmpeg, including MOV, AVI, MPG, and WMV.

            I feel interested about ffmpeg-php project. But I reviewed the API doc, seems that it is only able to "get" the information from audio and vedio files. If I'd like to convert an audio from one format to another, I have to call the shell command in php code. Is there any way to do the convertation with php API? thanks!
