How do you get pydub to find ffmpeg?

  Kiến thức lập trình

I’m trying to import pydub into my python program but any time I run the code it says it can’t locate where ffmpeg is. I have tried everything including putting “pip install ffmpeg-python” in command prompt, juggling around the locations of the ffmpeg and python files, changing the system environment lables in PATH (although this is not saving for some reason)
I don’t know what to do from here

My exact code from before would’ve looked like this:

import pydub
import ffmpeg
from pydub import AudioSegment
trumpet = AudioSegment.from_mp3(“C:/Users/redacted/Downloads/trumpet-e4-14829.mp3″)

And I got this beautiful long error message:

Warning (from warnings module):
File “C:Users*redacted*”, line 170
warn(“Couldn’t find ffmpeg or avconv – defaulting to ffmpeg, but may not work”, RuntimeWarning)
RuntimeWarning: Couldn’t find ffmpeg or avconv – defaulting to ffmpeg, but may not work
