m3u8-file-parser

0.2.1 • Public • Published

m3u8-file-parser

A m3u/m3u8 file parser build against RFC8216 specs.

Installation

npm install m3u8-file-parser --save or yarn add m3u8-file-parser

Usage

In Node.js

const M3U8FileParser = require('m3u8-file-reader');
const fs = require('fs');
const content = fs.readFileSync('./example.m3u8', { encoding: 'utf-8'});
 
const reader = new M3U8FileParser();
reader.read(content);
reader.getResult(); // Get the parse result
reader.reset(); // Optional, If you want to parse a new file, call reset()

In Node.js read line by line

const M3U8FileParser = require('m3u8-file-reader');
const fs = require('fs');
const content = fs.readFileSync('./example.m3u8', { encoding: 'utf-8'});
const readline = require('readline');
 
const reader = new M3U8FileParser();
const stream = fs.createReadStream('./example.m3u8', { encoding: 'utf-8' });
const interface = readline.createInterface({ input: stream });
 
interface.on('line', line => reader.read(line)); // Read line by line
interface.on('close', () => reader.getResult()); // Get result after file ends.

In browser, use the file in dist instead.

  <script src="../../dist/m3u8-file-parser.min.js"></script> 
  <script>
    var reader = new M3U8FileParser();
    var m3u8Content = `
      #EXTM3U
      #EXTINF:10, Sample Title
      https://example.com/sample1.mp3
 
      #EXTINF:10, Sample Title 2\n
      https://example.com/sample2.mp3
    `;
 
    reader.read(m3u8Content);
    console.log('result', reader.getResult());
  </script> 
</head>
<body>
  <h2>See console for result</h2>

Also, you can parse file line by line if you want, for example, in Node.js, parsing a large file using readline
