FFmpeg.NET is a .NET Core wrapper around the native FFmpeg libraries. It is currently in a very early stage of development and is definitely not production ready. This project aims to be cross platform, but currently it has only been tested under Ubuntu 14.04 and Ubuntu 16.04. If you have managed to get FFmpeg.NET running under Windows or MacOS, I would greatly appreciate if you would share your experiences.
If you want to you can download and manually build the solution. The project was built using Visual Studio Code under Ubuntu. Just clone the Git repository:
git clone https://github.com/lecode-official/ffmpeg-dotnet.git
Before using FFmpeg.NET, you need to install the latest version of FFmpeg. The source includes an installation script, which downloads, builds, and installs everything for you:
cd ffmpeg-dotnet/Installation sudo bash InstallFFmpeg.sh
Also, if you haven't installed the latest version of .NET Core, you can install it using the provided installation script:
cd ffmpeg-dotnet/Installation sudo bash InstallDotNetCore.sh
After that, you can just
dotnet restore and
dotnet build the projects. A basic sample is provided with the source code:
cd ffmpeg-dotnet/Source/FFmpegDotNet.Interop dotnet restore dotnet build cd ../FFmpegDotNet.Samples.FrameExtraction dotnet restore dotnet build dotnet run
