Usage

FFmpeg Conversion

Converts any audio or video format supported by FFmpeg into any supported audio format.

Supported msg.payload types:

  • String URL to audio or video
  • Buffer Raw Audio Bytes

Should support any audio or video input currently supported by FFmpeg. Full list found here.

Supported output formats (audio only):

  • MP3
  • WAV
  • FLAC
  • OGG

Returns a buffer of the converted data on msg.payload.

Currently been tested with:

  • MP4 to MP3/WAV/FLAC/OGG
  • WAV to MP3/WAV/FLAC/OGG

FFmpeg Silence Detection

Performs silence detection provided by FFmpeg on audio files.

Supported msg.payload types:

  • String URL to audio
  • Buffer Raw Audio Bytes

Should support any audio input currently supported by FFmpeg. Full list found here.

Returns a buffer of the audio data on msg.payload.

Currently been tested with:

  • WAV

Defaults

  • Noise tolerance: 0.008 amplitude ratio
  • Duration: 0.8 seconds

Resulting silence start and end times (in seconds) will be returned as an array on msg.silences, eg. [[0, 2], [5, 6]].

FFmpeg Segment

Splits audio files and sends a message for each segment.

Supported msg.payload types:

  • String URL to audio
  • Buffer Raw Audio Bytes

Should support any audio input currently supported by FFmpeg. Full list found here.

Returns a buffer of the split data on msg.payload.

Currently been tested with:

  • WAV

This node splits the input into a number of segments. It splits the audio using times specified on msg.times, eg. [5, 10] will split the audio at 5 seconds and 10 seconds.

Each resulting segment will be sent as an individual message on msg.payload from the node. The timesplits of each segment will be available on msg.timesplit, eg. a timesplit of [0, 5] started at 0 and ended at 5 seconds in the original.

Checking the "Send split messages in order with delay" checkbox will add a delay between sending each message. This delay will be equal to the previous segments length in seconds. This allows you to play the segments through a speaker in the original order for testing purposes.

Unzip

Unzips a .zip folder into separate files.

The node requires a .zip input file and will output the contents on the node's msg.payload object.

Supported msg.payload types:

  • .zip file

Output types:

  • A separate buffer for each of the files contained within the input folder.

Gotchas

Please note that currently the node returns a buffer of all the files contained in the .zip including any dotfiles.
