To use or import ffmpeg in a Laravel controller, you need to first install the php-ffmpeg package using Composer. You can do this by running the following command in your Laravel project directory:

1
composer require php-ffmpeg/php-ffmpeg


Once you have installed the package, you can use ffmpeg in your Laravel controller like this:

use FFMpegFFMpeg;
use FFMpegFFMpegFFProbe;

public function convertVideo()
{
    $ffmpeg = FFMpeg::create();
    $video = $ffmpeg->open('path/to/input/video.mp4');
    
    $format = new X264();
    $format->setAudioCodec("libmp3lame");

    $video->save($format, 'path/to/output/video.mp4');

    return "Video converted successfully!";
}


In this example, we are using the php-ffmpeg package to convert a video file from one format to another. Make sure to replace the input and output file paths with the actual paths of your video files.


Remember to import the necessary classes at the top of your controller file to use the ffmpeg functions.
