This is a relatively low level helper plugin for video transcoding with ffmpeg. You generally shouldn’t need to use this.


npm install --save gatsby-plugin-ffmpeg

ffmpeg with the correct codecs is also required.


With Homebrew 2.0.3/ffmpeg 4.1.1 ffmpeg options are no longer available on the default tap.


The following will install ffmpeg.

brew tap varenc/ffmpeg
brew tap-pin varenc/ffmpeg
brew install ffmpeg $(brew options ffmpeg --compact)

How to use

// In your gatsby-config.js
plugins: [`gatsby-plugin-ffmpeg`];
