public class FLVParser
extends AbstractParser

Parser for metadata contained in Flash Videos (.flv). Resources: and for AMF:

This parser is capable of extracting the general metadata from header as well as embedded metadata.

Known keys for metadata (from file header):

  1. hasVideo: true|false
  2. hasSound: true|false

In addition to the above values also metadata that is inserted in to the actual stream will be picked. Usually there are keys like: hasKeyframes, lastkeyframetimestamp, audiocodecid, keyframes, filepositions, hasMetadata, audiosamplerate, videodatarate metadatadate, videocodecid, metadatacreator, audiosize, hasVideo, height, audiosamplesize, framerate, hasCuePoints width, cuePoints, lasttimestamp, canSeekToEnd, datasize, duration, videosize, filesize, audiodatarate, hasAudio, stereo audiodelay

Description copied from interface: Parser
Parses a document stream into a sequence of XHTML SAX events. Fills in related document metadata in the given metadata object.

The given document stream is consumed but not closed by this method. The responsibility to close the stream remains on the caller.

Information about the parsing context can be passed in the context parameter. See the parser implementations for the kinds of context information they expect.

stream - the document stream (input)
handler - handler for the XHTML SAX events (output)
metadata - document metadata (input and output)
context - parse context
IOException - if the document stream could not be read
SAXException - if the SAX events could not be processed
TikaException - if the document could not be parsed
