import "github.com/giorgisio/goav/avformat"

func main() {

    filename := "sample.mp4"

    // Register all formats and codecs
    avformat.AvRegisterAll()

    ctx := avformat.AvformatAllocContext()

    // Open video file
    if avformat.AvformatOpenInput(&ctx, filename, nil, nil) != 0 {
        log.Println("Error: Couldn't open file.")
        return
    }

    // Retrieve stream information
    if ctx.AvformatFindStreamInfo(nil) < 0 {
        log.Println("Error: Couldn't find stream information.")

        // Close input file and free context
        ctx.AvformatCloseInput()
        return
    }

    //...
