How to use

Getting thumnails or videostream info

from ffvideo import VideoStream

def print_info(vs):
    print '-' * 20
    print "codec: %s" % vs.codec_name
    print "duration: %.2f" % vs.duration
    print "frame size: %dx%d" % (vs.frame_width, vs.frame_height)
    print "frame_mode: %s" % vs.frame_mode

vs = VideoStream('0.flv')

vs = VideoStream('0.flv',
                 frame_size=(128, None), # scale to width 128px
                 frame_mode='L') # convert to grayscale

frame = vs.get_frame_at_sec(2)
print frame.size

# PIL image, required installed PIL

# numpy.ndarray, required installed numpy
print frame.ndarray().shape

Iterating over frame sequence

from ffvideo import VideoStream

    print frame.timestamp
