NAME ^

FLV::File - Parse Flash Video files

LICENSE ^

See FLV::Info

METHODS ^

This is a subclass of FLV::Base.

READ/WRITE METHODS

$self->empty()

Prepare an empty FLV. This is only needed if you do not plan to call the parse() method.

$self->parse($filename)
$self->parse($filehandle)

Reads the specified file. If the file does not exist or is an invalid FLV stream, an exception will be thrown via croak().

There is no return value.

$self->clone()

Create an independent copy of this instance.

$self->populate_meta()

Fill in various onMetadata fields if they are not already present.

$self->serialize($filehandle)

Serializes the in-memory FLV data. If that representation is not complete, this throws an exception via croak(). Returns a boolean indicating whether writing to the file handle was successful.

ACCESSORS

$self->get_info()

Returns a hash of FLV metadata. See File::Info for more details.

$self->get_filename()

Returns the filename, if any.

$self->get_meta($key);
$self->set_meta($key, $value, ...);

These are convenience functions for interacting with an onMetadata tag at time 0, which is a common convention in FLV files. If the zeroth tag is not an FLV::MetaTag instance, one is created and prepended to the tag list.

See also get_meta and set_meta in FLV::Body.

$self->get_header()
$self->get_body()

These methods return the FLV::Header and FLV::Body instance, respectively. Those will be undef until you call either empty() or parse().

PARSING UTILITIES

The following methods are only used during the parsing phase.

$self->get_bytes($n)

Reads $n bytes off the active filehandle and returns them as a string. Throws an exception if the filehandle is closed or hits EOF before all the bytes can be read.

$self->get_pos()
$self->get_pos($offset)

Returns a string representing the current position in the filehandle. This is intended for use in debugging or exceptions. An example of use: indicate that an input value five bytes behind the read head is erroneous.

    die 'Error parsing version number at byte '.$self->get_pos(-5);
$self->at_end()

Returns a boolean indicating if the FLV stream is exhausted. Throws an exception if the filehandle is closed.
