Detailed Description

Functions for querying libavformat capabilities, allocating core structures, etc.

Function Documentation

unsigned avformat_version ( void  )

Return the LIBAVFORMAT_VERSION_INT constant.

Definition at line 61 of file utils.c.

const char* avformat_configuration ( void  )

Return the libavformat build-time configuration.

Definition at line 67 of file utils.c.

const char* avformat_license ( void  )

Return the libavformat license.

Definition at line 72 of file utils.c.

void av_register_all ( void  )

Initialize libavformat and register all the muxers, demuxers and protocols.

If you do not call this function, then you can select exactly which formats you want to support.

Definition at line 51 of file allformats.c.

Referenced by ff_load_image(), main(), and movie_common_init().

void av_register_input_format ( AVInputFormat format)

Definition at line 61 of file format.c.

void av_register_output_format ( AVOutputFormat format)

Definition at line 71 of file format.c.

int avformat_network_init ( void  )

Do global initialization of network components.

This is optional, but recommended, since it avoids the overhead of implicitly doing the setup for each session.

Calling this function will become mandatory if using network protocols at some major version bump.

Definition at line 4035 of file utils.c.

Referenced by main().

int avformat_network_deinit ( void  )

Undo the initialization done by avformat_network_init.

Definition at line 4047 of file utils.c.

Referenced by do_exit(), ffmpeg_cleanup(), main(), and term_init().

AVInputFormat* av_iformat_next ( const AVInputFormat f)

If f is NULL, returns the first registered input format, if f is non-NULL, returns the next registered input format after f or NULL if f is the last one.

Definition at line 45 of file format.c.

Referenced by av_device_next(), av_find_input_format(), av_probe_input_format3(), ff_img_read_header(), format_child_class_next(), print_times(), probe(), show_format_opts(), and show_formats_devices().

AVOutputFormat* av_oformat_next ( const AVOutputFormat f)

If f is NULL, returns the first registered output format, if f is non-NULL, returns the next registered output format after f or NULL if f is the last one.

Definition at line 53 of file format.c.

Referenced by av_device_next(), av_guess_format(), format_child_class_next(), show_format_opts(), and show_formats_devices().

AVFormatContext* avformat_alloc_context ( void  )
void avformat_free_context ( AVFormatContext s)
const AVClass* avformat_get_class ( void  )

Get the AVClass for AVFormatContext.

It can be used in combination with AV_OPT_SEARCH_FAKE_OBJ for examining options.

AVStream* avformat_new_stream ( AVFormatContext s,
const AVCodec c 

Add a new stream to a media file.

When demuxing, it is called by the demuxer in read_header(). If the flag AVFMTCTX_NOHEADER is set in s.ctx_flags, then it may also be called in read_packet().

When muxing, should be called by the user before avformat_write_header().

User is required to call avcodec_close() and avformat_free_context() to clean up the allocation by avformat_new_stream().

smedia file handle
cIf non-NULL, the AVCodecContext corresponding to the new stream will be initialized to use this codec. This is needed for e.g. codec-specific defaults to be set, so codec should be provided if it is known.
newly created stream or NULL on error.
