Pyrana is a pure-python package which provides easy, pythonic and powerful handling of multimedia files.

  • easy: pyrana does not submerge you with tons of options and details, but is filled with sane defaults. pyrana aims to be multimedia processing what requests is for http.
  • pythonic: pyrana wants to play nice and work well with the other well-established relevant python packages: Pillow, pygame, PySDL2, PyAudio, numpy compatibility is coming soon.
  • powerful: pyrana provides an independent API, but is built on the great foundations provided by the powerful FFMpeg libraries.

pyrana is a modern, pure python package which is developed for python 3 and compatible with python 2.7, which takes great advantage of CFFI, so the compatibility with pypy is just one step away.

pyrana offers a minimum 100% unit-test and documentation coverage, and put great emphasis on small, yet complete and workable examples. Last but not least, pyrana is released under the very liberal ZLIB license.
