bpp - bits per pixel calculator for Node

Today, I released my first npm module. It’s nothing revolutionary, but it may help you out if you’re looking to easily calculate a video file’s bits-per-pixel using only FFmpeg. Check it out on npm.

The reason for creating this module is simple: FFmpeg does not provide this valuable measurement in the output of its otherwise stellar ffprobe tool. Luckily, it does provide all of the data necessary to do the calculation yourself, so I went ahead and made this convenience module to save myself time. An added bonus is that you don’t need to install mediainfo on your production box!
