Examples of using FFMpeg library on Android with Kotlin

For Video, Audio and Image/GIF operations.
App is pre loaded with audio, video, images, font resources which are useful for experimenting with FFmpeg library. You can add your resources as well, but keep extensions and make sure naming conventions are same as used in this project to avoid any I/OExceptions.

Each example will preview result in a dialog. Files are saved in local storage directory and can be directly accessed from there.

FFMpeg Examples (Video):

  1. Split a video in equal segments

    VideoSplitter.with(context!!)
                     .setFile(video) //Video File
                     .setOutputPath("PATH_TO_OUTPUT_VIDEO")
                     .setSegmentTime("00:00:15") //Split into 15 seconds segment
                     .setOutputFileName("splittedVideo")
                     .setCallback([email protected])
                     .split()
    
  2. Trim a video with specified timestamps

                     .setEndTime("00:00:25") //End on 25 seconds
                     .setOutputPath("PATH_TO_OUTPUT_VIDEO")
                     .setOutputFileName("trimmed_" + System.currentTimeMillis() + ".mp4")

                             .extract()
    

CallBacks:

You can implement callbacks of all tools using: FFMpegCallback.
Just implement this in your Activity or Fragment.

It supports following callbacks:

        override fun onProgress(progress: String) {
            Log.i(TAG, "Running: $progress")
        }
    
        override fun onSuccess(convertedFile: File, type: String) {
            Toast.makeText(this, "Done!", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()
        }
    
        override fun onFailure(error: Exception) {
            error.printStackTrace()
        }
    
        override fun onFinish() {
            //TODO Do something here
        }
    
        override fun onNotAvailable(error: Exception) {
            Toast.makeText(this, "Error: ${error.message}", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()
        }

Stop/Kill ongoing process:

        fun stopRunningProcess() {
                FFmpeg.getInstance(this).killRunningProcesses()
        }

Check if any process is running:

        fun isRunning(): Boolean {
                return FFmpeg.getInstance(this).isFFmpegCommandRunning
        }

Permissions:

Following permissions must be added to avoid IO exceptions:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
