NAME

FFprobe - probes information from multimedia files using ffprobe

PREREQUISITES

This module requires that the ffprobe program is present and accessible through the PATH. It is part of the ffmpeg / libav suite.

SYNOPSIS

    use FFprobe; # may fail if ffprobe isn't present

    my $probe = FFprobe->probe_file("/path/to/multimedia/file");
    print $probe->{format}->{format_name};
    print $probe->{stream}->[0]->{codec_name};

METHODS

probe_file($)

 use FFprobe;
 my $probe = FFprobe->probe_file("/path/to/file");

Runs ffprobe -show_format -show_streams on the filename given as argument. Returns a hashref with a structured form parsed from ffprobe's output. Sample output:

    $VAR1 = {
        'format' => {
            'start_time' => '0.000000',
            'filename'   => '/path/to/input/file',
        },
        'stream' => [
            {
                'index' => '0',
                'codec_tag' => '0x0000',
            },
            {
                'index' => '1',
                'codec_tag' => '0x0000',
            }
        ]
    };

The index entry may not exist if there is only one stream.
