34 * Libavformat (lavf) is a library for dealing with various media container
35 * formats. Its main two purposes are demuxing - i.e. splitting a media file
36 * into component streams, and the reverse process of muxing - writing supplied
37 * data in a specified container format. It also has an @ref lavf_io
38 * "I/O module" which supports a number of protocols for accessing the data (e.g.
39 * file, tcp, http and others). Before using lavf, you need to call
40 * av_register_all() to register all compiled muxers, demuxers and protocols.
41 * Unless you are absolutely sure you won't use libavformat's network
42 * capabilities, you should also call avformat_network_init().
43 *
44 * A supported input format is described by an AVInputFormat struct, conversely
45 * an output format is described by AVOutputFormat. You can iterate over all
46 * registered input/output formats using the av_iformat_next() /
47 * av_oformat_next() functions. The protocols layer is not part of the public
48 * API, so you can only get the names of supported protocols with the
49 * avio_enum_protocols() function.
50 *
51 * Main lavf structure used for both muxing and demuxing is AVFormatContext,
52 * which exports all information about the file being read or written. As with
53 * most Libav structures, its size is not part of public ABI, so it cannot be
54 * allocated on stack or directly with av_malloc(). To create an
55 * AVFormatContext, use avformat_alloc_context() (some functions, like
56 * avformat_open_input() might do that for you).
57 *
58 * Most importantly an AVFormatContext contains:
59 * @li the @ref AVFormatContext.iformat "input" or @ref AVFormatContext.oformat
60 * "output" format. It is either autodetected or set by user for input;
61 * always set by user for output.
62 * @li an @ref AVFormatContext.streams "array" of AVStreams, which describe all
63 * elementary streams stored in the file. AVStreams are typically referred to
64 * using their index in this array.
65 * @li an @ref AVFormatContext.pb "I/O context". It is either opened by lavf or
66 * set by user for input, always set by user for output (unless you are dealing
67 * with an AVFMT_NOFILE format).
68 *

69 * @section lavf_options Passing options to (de)muxers
70 * Lavf allows to configure muxers and demuxers using the @ref avoptions
71 * mechanism. Generic (format-independent) libavformat options are provided by
72 * AVFormatContext, they can be examined from a user program by calling
73 * av_opt_next() / av_opt_find() on an allocated AVFormatContext (or its AVClass
74 * from avformat_get_class()). Private (format-specific) options are provided by
75 * AVFormatContext.priv_data if and only if AVInputFormat.priv_class /
76 * AVOutputFormat.priv_class of the corresponding format struct is non-NULL.
77 * Further options may be provided by the @ref AVFormatContext.pb "I/O context",
78 * if its AVClass is non-NULL, and the protocols layer. See the discussion on
79 * nesting in @ref avoptions documentation to learn how to access those.

81 * @defgroup lavf_decoding Demuxing
82 * @{
59826cab 83 * Demuxers read a media file and split it into chunks of data (@em packets). A
dca9c81d
AK
84 * @ref AVPacket "packet" contains one or more encoded frames which belongs to a
85 * single elementary stream. In the lavf API this process is represented by the
59826cab
AK
86 * avformat_open_input() function for opening a file, av_read_frame() for
87 * reading a single packet and finally avformat_close_input(), which does the
88 * cleanup.
89 *
90 * @section lavf_decoding_open Opening a media file
91 * The minimum information required to open a file is its URL or filename, which
92 * is passed to avformat_open_input(), as in the following code:
93 * @code
94 * const char *url = "in.mp3";
95 * AVFormatContext *s = NULL;
96 * int ret = avformat_open_input(&s, url, NULL, NULL);
97 * if (ret < 0)
98 * abort();
99 * @endcode
100 * The above code attempts to allocate an AVFormatContext, open the
101 * specified file (autodetecting the format) and read the header, exporting the
102 * information stored there into s. Some formats do not have a header or do not
103 * store enough information there, so it is recommended that you call the
104 * avformat_find_stream_info() function which tries to read and decode a few
105 * frames to find missing information.
106 *
107 * In some cases you might want to preallocate an AVFormatContext yourself with
108 * avformat_alloc_context() and do some tweaking on it before passing it to
109 * avformat_open_input(). One such case is when you want to use custom functions
110 * for reading input data instead of lavf internal I/O layer.
111 * To do that, create your own AVIOContext with avio_alloc_context(), passing
112 * your reading callbacks to it. Then set the @em pb field of your
113 * AVFormatContext to newly created AVIOContext.
114 *
10fa4ff7
AK
115 * Since the format of the opened file is in general not known until after
116 * avformat_open_input() has returned, it is not possible to set demuxer private
117 * options on a preallocated context. Instead, the options should be passed to
118 * avformat_open_input() wrapped in an AVDictionary:
119 * @code
120 * AVDictionary *options = NULL;
121 * av_dict_set(&options, "video_size", "640x480", 0);
122 * av_dict_set(&options, "pixel_format", "rgb24", 0);
123 *
124 * if (avformat_open_input(&s, url, NULL, &options) < 0)
125 * abort();
126 * av_dict_free(&options);
127 * @endcode
128 * This code passes the private options 'video_size' and 'pixel_format' to the
129 * demuxer. They would be necessary for e.g. the rawvideo demuxer, since it
130 * cannot know how to interpret raw video data otherwise. If the format turns
131 * out to be something different than raw video, those options will not be
132 * recognized by the demuxer and therefore will not be applied. Such unrecognized
133 * options are then returned in the options dictionary (recognized options are
134 * consumed). The calling program can handle such unrecognized options as it
135 * wishes, e.g.
136 * @code
137 * AVDictionaryEntry *e;
138 * if (e = av_dict_get(options, "", NULL, AV_DICT_IGNORE_SUFFIX)) {
139 * fprintf(stderr, "Option %s not recognized by the demuxer.\n", e->key);
140 * abort();
141 * }
142 * @endcode
143 *
59826cab
AK
144 * After you have finished reading the file, you must close it with
145 * avformat_close_input(). It will free everything associated with the file.
146 *
147 * @section lavf_decoding_read Reading from an opened file
f58b8cc3
AK
148 * Reading data from an opened AVFormatContext is done by repeatedly calling
149 * av_read_frame() on it. Each call, if successful, will return an AVPacket
150 * containing encoded data for one AVStream, identified by
151 * AVPacket.stream_index. This packet may be passed straight into the libavcodec
152 * decoding functions avcodec_decode_video2(), avcodec_decode_audio4() or
153 * avcodec_decode_subtitle2() if the caller wishes to decode the data.
154 *
155 * AVPacket.pts, AVPacket.dts and AVPacket.duration timing information will be
156 * set if known. They may also be unset (i.e. AV_NOPTS_VALUE for
157 * pts/dts, 0 for duration) if the stream does not provide them. The timing
158 * information will be in AVStream.time_base units, i.e. it has to be
159 * multiplied by the timebase to convert them to seconds.
160 *
1afddbe5 161 * If AVPacket.buf is set on the returned packet, then the packet is
717a4509 162 * allocated dynamically and the user may keep it indefinitely.
1afddbe5 163 * Otherwise, if AVPacket.buf is NULL, the packet data is backed by a
717a4509
AK
164 * static storage somewhere inside the demuxer and the packet is only valid
165 * until the next av_read_frame() call or closing the file. If the caller
166 * requires a longer lifetime, av_dup_packet() will make an av_malloc()ed copy
167 * of it.
168 * In both cases, the packet must be freed with av_free_packet() when it is no
169 * longer needed.

176 * Muxers take encoded data in the form of @ref AVPacket "AVPackets" and write
177 * it into files or other output bytestreams in the specified container format.
178 *
179 * The main API functions for muxing are avformat_write_header() for writing the
180 * file header, av_write_frame() / av_interleaved_write_frame() for writing the
181 * packets and av_write_trailer() for finalizing the file.
182 *
183 * At the beginning of the muxing process, the caller must first call
184 * avformat_alloc_context() to create a muxing context. The caller then sets up
185 * the muxer by filling the various fields in this context:
186 *
187 * - The @ref AVFormatContext.oformat "oformat" field must be set to select the
188 * muxer that will be used.
189 * - Unless the format is of the AVFMT_NOFILE type, the @ref AVFormatContext.pb
190 * "pb" field must be set to an opened IO context, either returned from
191 * avio_open2() or a custom one.
192 * - Unless the format is of the AVFMT_NOSTREAMS type, at least one stream must
193 * be created with the avformat_new_stream() function. The caller should fill
194 * the @ref AVStream.codec "stream codec context" information, such as the
195 * codec @ref AVCodecContext.codec_type "type", @ref AVCodecContext.codec_id
196 * "id" and other parameters (e.g. width / height, the pixel or sample format,
197 * etc.) as known. The @ref AVCodecContext.time_base "codec timebase" should
198 * be set to the timebase that the caller desires to use for this stream (note
199 * that the timebase actually used by the muxer can be different, as will be
200 * described later).
201 * - The caller may fill in additional information, such as @ref
202 * AVFormatContext.metadata "global" or @ref AVStream.metadata "per-stream"
203 * metadata, @ref AVFormatContext.chapters "chapters", @ref
204 * AVFormatContext.programs "programs", etc. as described in the
205 * AVFormatContext documentation. Whether such information will actually be
206 * stored in the output depends on what the container format and the muxer
207 * support.
208 *
209 * When the muxing context is fully set up, the caller must call
210 * avformat_write_header() to initialize the muxer internals and write the file
211 * header. Whether anything actually is written to the IO context at this step
212 * depends on the muxer, but this function must always be called. Any muxer
213 * private options must be passed in the options parameter to this function.
214 *
215 * The data is then sent to the muxer by repeatedly calling av_write_frame() or
216 * av_interleaved_write_frame() (consult those functions' documentation for
217 * discussion on the difference between them; only one of them may be used with
218 * a single muxing context, they should not be mixed). Do note that the timing
219 * information on the packets sent to the muxer must be in the corresponding
220 * AVStream's timebase. That timebase is set by the muxer (in the
221 * avformat_write_header() step) and may be different from the timebase the
222 * caller set on the codec context.
223 *
224 * Once all the data has been written, the caller must call av_write_trailer()
225 * to flush any buffered packets and finalize the output file, then close the IO
226 * context (if any) and finally free the muxing context with
227 * avformat_free_context().

266 * @defgroup metadata_api Public Metadata API
267 * @{
b262a059 268 * @ingroup libavf
ea29242c 269 * The metadata API allows libavformat to export metadata tags to a client
28b4c06b
AK
270 * application when demuxing. Conversely it allows a client application to
271 * set metadata when muxing.
272 *
273 * Metadata is exported or set as pairs of key/value strings in the 'metadata'
274 * fields of the AVFormatContext, AVStream, AVChapter and AVProgram structs
275 * using the @ref lavu_dict "AVDictionary" API. Like all strings in Libav,
276 * metadata is assumed to be UTF-8 encoded Unicode. Note that metadata
61648423 277 * exported by demuxers isn't checked to be valid UTF-8 in most cases.
28b4c06b 278 *
ea29242c 279 * Important concepts to keep in mind:
1a53a438 280 * - Keys are unique; there can never be 2 tags with the same key. This is
ea29242c
MM
281 * also meant semantically, i.e., a demuxer should not knowingly produce
282 * several keys that are literally different but semantically identical.
283 * E.g., key=Author5, key=Author6. In this example, all authors must be
284 * placed in the same tag.
1a53a438 285 * - Metadata is flat, not hierarchical; there are no subtags. If you
ea29242c
MM
286 * want to store, e.g., the email address of the child of producer Alice
287 * and actor Bob, that could have key=alice_and_bobs_childs_email_address.
1a53a438 288 * - Several modifiers can be applied to the tag name. This is done by
ca76a119
AK
289 * appending a dash character ('-') and the modifier name in the order
290 * they appear in the list below -- e.g. foo-eng-sort, not foo-sort-eng.
1a53a438 291 * - language -- a tag whose value is localized for a particular language
ca76a119
AK
292 * is appended with the ISO 639-2/B 3-letter language code.
293 * For example: Author-ger=Michael, Author-eng=Mike
294 * The original/default language is in the unqualified "Author" tag.
295 * A demuxer should set a default if it sets any translated tag.
1a53a438 296 * - sorting -- a modified version of a tag that should be used for
ca76a119
AK
297 * sorting will have '-sort' appended. E.g. artist="The Beatles",
298 * artist-sort="Beatles, The".
299 *
1a53a438 300 * - Demuxers attempt to export metadata in a generic format, however tags
03700d39
AK
301 * with no generic equivalents are left as they are stored in the container.
302 * Follows a list of generic tag names:
