31  * @defgroup libavf I/O and Muxing/Demuxing Library
32  * @{
33  *
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 Libavformat 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.
80  *
81  * @defgroup lavf_decoding Demuxing
82  * @{
83  * Demuxers read a media file and split it into chunks of data (@em packets). A
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
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  *
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  *
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
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  *
161  * If AVPacket.buf is set on the returned packet, then the packet is
162  * allocated dynamically and the user may keep it indefinitely.
163  * Otherwise, if AVPacket.buf is NULL, the packet data is backed by a
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.
170  *

173  *
174  * @defgroup lavf_encoding Muxing
175  * @{
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 AVStream.time_base "stream 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
222  * requested by the caller.
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().

268  * @defgroup metadata_api Public Metadata API
269  * @{
270  * @ingroup libavf
271  * The metadata API allows libavformat to export metadata tags to a client
272  * application when demuxing. Conversely it allows a client application to
273  * set metadata when muxing.
274  *
275  * Metadata is exported or set as pairs of key/value strings in the 'metadata'
276  * fields of the AVFormatContext, AVStream, AVChapter and AVProgram structs
277  * using the @ref lavu_dict "AVDictionary" API. Like all strings in FFmpeg,
278  * metadata is assumed to be UTF-8 encoded Unicode. Note that metadata
279  * exported by demuxers isn't checked to be valid UTF-8 in most cases.
280  *
281  * Important concepts to keep in mind:
282  * - Keys are unique; there can never be 2 tags with the same key. This is
283  * also meant semantically, i.e., a demuxer should not knowingly produce
284  * several keys that are literally different but semantically identical.
285  * E.g., key=Author5, key=Author6. In this example, all authors must be
286  * placed in the same tag.
287  * - Metadata is flat, not hierarchical; there are no subtags. If you
288  * want to store, e.g., the email address of the child of producer Alice
289  * and actor Bob, that could have key=alice_and_bobs_childs_email_address.
290  * - Several modifiers can be applied to the tag name. This is done by
291  * appending a dash character ('-') and the modifier name in the order
292  * they appear in the list below -- e.g. foo-eng-sort, not foo-sort-eng.
293  * - language -- a tag whose value is localized for a particular language
294  * is appended with the ISO 639-2/B 3-letter language code.
295  * For example: Author-ger=Michael, Author-eng=Mike
296  * The original/default language is in the unqualified "Author" tag.
297  * A demuxer should set a default if it sets any translated tag.
298  * - sorting -- a modified version of a tag that should be used for
299  * sorting will have '-sort' appended. E.g. artist="The Beatles",
300  * artist-sort="Beatles, The".
301  * - Some protocols and demuxers support metadata updates. After a successful
302  * call to av_read_packet(), AVFormatContext.event_flags or AVStream.event_flags
303  * will be updated to indicate if metadata changed. In order to detect metadata
304  * changes on a stream, you need to loop through all streams in the AVFormatContext
305  * and check their individual event_flags.
306  *
307  * - Demuxers attempt to export metadata in a generic format, however tags
308  * with no generic equivalents are left as they are stored in the container.
309  * Follows a list of generic tag names:
310  *
