Key Features

  • Transcription: Convert speech in your videos into accurate text.
  • Summarization: Get concise summaries of video content.
  • Chapter Extraction: Identify and extract distinct chapters from videos.
  • Support for Various Sources: Works with local files, URLs, and S3 buckets.


Install the package with npm:

npm install video-summary

Getting Started

const VideoSummarySDK = require('video-summary')
const VideoSummary = new VideoSummarySDK('your api key')

setTimeout(async () => {
  try {
    // local file, s3 url, and signed s3 url all work! You can also send an audio file 
    const path = './your/local/file.mp4'
    const res = await VideoSummary.summarize(path)
    console.log("video summary res:", res)
  } catch (e) {
    console.error('video summary sdk e', e)

API Methods

The SDK offers several methods to interact with your videos:


The id and callbackUrl are optional. the id field can be used for your own reference if you have as asset id already. the callbackUrl is used to send a webhook when the video is processed and sends the id back to you.

If you don't provide a callback url, the call will be synchronous and wait for the processing to complete.

summarize(url, [id], [callbackUrl])

Summarizes the video content. Provide the URL of the video, and optionally, an ID and a callback URL for asynchronous processing.

transcribe(url, [id], [callbackUrl])

Transcribes the audio content of the video into text. Pass the video URL, and if needed, an ID and a callback URL.

chapter(url, [id], [callbackUrl])

Extracts chapters from the video for easy navigation and understanding. Requires the video URL, with optional ID and callback URL.

summarizeAndChapter(url, [id], [callbackUrl])

Performs both summarization and chapter extraction on the video. Input the video URL, and optionally, an ID and a callback URL.

getFiles(limit, offset)

Retrieves a list of processed files. You can specify the number of files to return and the offset.


Fetches the details of a specific file by its ID.

Each method returns a promise that resolves to an object with relevant data about the video processing, including transcripts, summaries, chapters, and file IDs.
