I'm new to using ffmpeg and I'm trying to figure out how to use a PHP variable to convert a file to MP3 format. I've been searching online for solutions, but I haven't been able to find a clear answer.
Here's what I'm trying to achieve: I have a PHP variable that contains the path of the input file, and I want to pass this variable to ffmpeg to convert the file to MP3. I want to automate this process so that I can convert multiple files without having to manually enter the file paths each time.
I'm currently using the following command to convert a file to MP3:
ffmpeg -i input_file.wav output_file.mp3
But instead of manually entering the file paths, I want to pass the paths using a PHP variable. Is there a way to achieve this? Any guidance or examples would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
