VideoEditor SDK supports saving videos to a Base64 encoded string.
Import Expo file system#
Set an accessible export path#
Since we are using the
expo-file-system module for deleting the exported video after processing it, we need to save the video in one of the directories that are supported by this module. Otherwise, the module will not be able to delete the files. For further reference on this, please have a look at the official documentation. Please note that you need to specify the file extension for Android, while it is automatically added for iOS.
Open the editor and handle the result#
Open the video editor and handle the export result.
If no modifications have been made to the original video, we will not process the original video at all and also not reencode it. In this case,
result.video will point to the original video that was passed to the editor, if available. If you want to ensure that the original video is always reencoded, even if no modifications have been made to it, you can set
true, in which case
result.video will always point to a newly generated video.
Encode the video#
After retrieving the exported video, use the
expo-file-system module to encode the
VideoEditorResult.video in a Base64 string.
Delete the temporary video#
Delete the temporary export file after processing the video.
