    Transcoder the command line audio / video transcoder tool

    Introduction

    Transcoder is a FFmpeg powered command line transcoding tool. It allows you to convert audio and video files between many formats.

    Installing

    npm install transcoder -g

    USING

    Transcoder is used as a stand-alone application. Now that you have Transcoder installed you can convert files using any of the following methods:

    Convert an .avi to an .mp4

    transcoder /path/to/video.avi /path/to/video.mp4

    The above command will execute Transcoder and convert the video.avi file to a video.mp4 file using the appropriate encoder setup.

    Convert a .mp3 to an .ogg

    transcoder /path/to/audio.mp3 /path/to/audio.ogg

    This will create an ogg encoded version of the audio.mp3 file specified.

    Convert a .wav to an .aiff

    transcoder /path/to/audio.wav /path/to/audio.aiff

    This will convert audio.wav to audio.aiff.
