Media Codec Condition

With the help of the Media Codec Condition it is possible to use the codec of a video file as a condition for further actions. Helmut 4 uses Media Info for this, which is automatically installed when the client is installed. It is possible to define the codec in the form of a string. The exact designation and spelling of the possible codecs is defined by Media Info. This condition is helpful, for example, if every video file that deviates from the house standard is to be recoded.

The Media Codec Condition can theoretically be queried in every stream, as it is not linked to the project object or the user object, but it mostly makes sense if there is a job object in the stream. The job object is available if it is a HelmutIO stream.

The path to the mediainfo binary can be customized if the binary is located in a different directory or if a different version is desired.
