get-blob-duration

Convenience method to patch Chromium bug when getting duration of HTML5 video or audio Blob.

Installation

npm install --save get-blob-duration

or

yarn add get-blob-duration

Usage

Import the method however you like (browser, module, etc.). Once you have it in scope:

// Returns Promise<Number>
getBlobDuration(blob).then(function(duration) {
  console.log(duration + ' seconds');
});

Or use ECMAScript 6:

import getBlobDuration from 'get-blob-duration'

(async function() {
  const duration = await getBlobDuration(blob)
  console.log(duration + ' seconds')
})()

Or pass an object URL string if you already have one:

import getBlobDuration from 'get-blob-duration'

(async function() {
  const blobUrl = 'blob:https://mdn.mozillademos.org/012345678-9abc-def0-1234-56789abcdef0'
  const duration = await getBlobDuration(blobUrl)
  console.log(duration + ' seconds')
})()
