Video API Important Calls
As mentioned earlier there is only one controller in area section "videoController" with few methods responsible for handling upload and video processing activities while communicating with jQuery upload application. here is list of video api calls and their usage with customization instruction.
I: /api/video/upload: this method is responsible for uploading video files, one by one. You can access this method from /Areas/api/Controllers/videoController.cs file
public ActionResult upload()
// upload script here
If you want to change the path of directory where to save video, you can do this via this line
string uploadPath = Server.MapPath(Request.ApplicationPath) + "/contents/source";
II: /api/video/encode: this is the main method responsible for video encoding and sending video progress information to client browser. This method publish each video in background while using advance script to calculate how much video processed and send all video processing stats to jquery application in JSON format where to display stats in progress bar.
In encode method the main section involve is video encoding or publishing. here we used our own utility Media Handler Pro to publish videos, images, audio files by executing any type of ffmpeg commands. We recommend using latest ffmpeg build with upto date commands for better result. Here is how we use code for publishing mp4 videos
MediaHandler _mhandler = new MediaHandler(); string RootPath = Server.MapPath(Request.ApplicationPath); _mhandler.FFMPEGPath = Server.MapPath("~\\ffmpeg\\bin\\ffmpeg.exe"); _mhandler.InputPath = RootPath + "\\" + SourcePath; _mhandler.OutputPath = RootPath + "\\" + PublishedPath; _mhandler.BackgroundProcessing = true; _mhandler.FileName = Source; _mhandler.OutputFileName = Published; _mhandler.Parameters = "-c:v libx264 -preset medium -b:v 650k -c:a libvo_aacenc -b:a 96k"; _mhandler.OutputExtension = ".mp4"; _mhandler.ProcessMedia();
Parameters attribute is the most important attribute, you can use it to pass almost any type of ffmpeg command according to your own settings here.
_mhandler.Parameters = "-c:v libx264 -preset medium -b:v 650k -c:a libvo_aacenc -b:a 96k";
Make sure the command you are sending properly supported by ffmpeg you are using. In case of error you will see error message with error code as shown in screenshot. For more detail visit http://www.mediasoftpro.com/error-codes.html
Review rest of method features, you will understand how everything works. Code is writtne in a well mannered and easy to undertandable format.
II: /api/video/published: This method call except list of uploaded and published files in JSON Array and process all files. Processing includes
- Validate each file to make sure videos are published properly.
- Rename each published video to avoid duplication issue.
- Allow you to use any cloud API to send published videos to cloud storage e.g amazon s3
