Pulling An Image From Video

The Eagle Eye API allows you get to get a low-resolution preview image or the full resolution video. This little webapp is an example of how to get a full resolution image. It does this in the most obtuse way, it pulls a couple seconds of video and then calls FFMPEG to extract a keyframe from it.

You'll need to make the following API calls:

  • /api/pull_frame/device_id/start_timestamp/auth_key
  • /api/download/device_id-start_timestamp.jpg
