Crop Shop  (A Frontend Application For FFmpeg)

Essential 3rd Party Software: FFmpeg available from https://www.ffmpeg.org/download.html

Crop Shop is a video cropping application. Designed to select a region of video and save the region as a new complete video.

Crop Shop uses:
FFprobe to extract the video Width, Height and Duration.
FFplay is used to Preview the Cropped Video Region before you save the Video
FFmpeg is used to perform the Video Cropping.

This project is meant to be a simple demonstration without any extra's. "A Howto, Starting Point."
Make sure FFmpeg, FFprobe and FFplay reside in the same directory as your project or nothing will work for you. 

This updated version allows you to exit the FFmpeg Cropping Process, part way through, while still making the partially cropped video, playable.

The class file used in the project originates from this site.

Can't get it to work. It will load the video and even play and pause, but doesn't show the dimensions and the buttons are ineffective.

Reply to Chip.

From what you have described I am guessing that FFprobe and FFmpeg and FFplay are missing from your project directory. PSC does not allow the uploading of compiled executable files, that is why they are not in the zip file.

Download them completely free from

Make sure you have all three. FFprobe, FFmpeg and FFplay in the same directory as your *.vbp files
