    Encoding and decoding images in Rust (by image-rs)

    Glad it worked out for you—it seemed like the features are there for basic image conversion, but try to do something a little more sophisticated and you run into some severe design limits. Here is the kind of underlying problem I’m talking about:

  • Vidio

    FFmpeg wrapper providing simple, cross-platform Video I/O, GIF Creation, and Webcam Streaming in Go.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • joy4

    Golang audio/video library and streaming server

  • joy5

    AV toolkit

  • ffmpego

    A Go package for encoding and decoding video and audio files.

    I also wrote a similar thing years ago...

  • audiobook-split-ffmpeg-go

    Split audiobook file into per-chapter files using chapter metadata and ffmpeg

    You can instruct ffprobe to output the metadata in JSON (-print_format json), removing the need for manual parsing. Although you already utilize "-print_format compact" - was this a deliberate choice?

    Also, you don't have to do manual stdout buffering. Have a look at ReadChapters function in here: (fyi it's my own repo)
