Many sites need to take videos uploaded by the users. When a user uploads a video he may not be certain if that is the right video that he wants to upload and may only realize that after a few hours when the video finishes uploading.

This object is one of several others that can help addressing this issue by being able to parse and extract data from an MP4 video even before the user uploads it. This way the user can confirm if the video was the right was that he wanted to upload.

Other versions of this package exist for parsing MP4 and MKV video files.

Sort of "Mediainfo" for AVI Files - little AVIParser (just for main technics information about the file)

Dependances : null

Usage :

<script src="AVIInfo.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script> 
(in single file .html)

(in worker)

How use it : 2 ways :


        avi(this.files[0], function(err, info) {
            if (err) {
            } else {
                sortie_texte = human_reading(info);

2 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

        avi(this.files[0], withmovis, function(err, info) {
            if (err) {
            } else {
                sortie_texte = human_reading(info);

where 'withmovis' is false or true (false by default or by ignore). When withmovis is true, AVIInfo will calculate sizes by reading each size of each frame. It's more exact but more slower

AVIInfo return an object structured (named 'info') wich contains a lot of technicals information about the file. If we want to read this informations, we need to make them readable. So human_reading is here !

Examples :

for a single file and no worker : index.html
for multiple files and worker   : indexw.html

Try it ?   (multiple + worker)  

PS : AVI files should have troubles ( (common problems in 'bad AVI files')) In these cases, you should use some tool to repair it. I use AviDemux ( ;-)
