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.
php-identity-map is a registry for loaded domain instances. It solves problems that arise when using the Active Record pattern with more than one object that references the same domain entity. The identity map allows you to be confident that your domain entity is shared throughout your application for the duration of the request. This package can store and retrieve objects in persistent storage containers, avoiding the need to have multiple instances of the same object in memory. It can use a mapper class to store objects of a class in a container, e.g. a database table. It can also retrieve the objects from the container, assuring that only one instance of the same object is retrieved into memory.
