FFmpeg is a  command line tool used for performing various conversion operations on audio and video files.

FFmpeg is free and open source. You’ll be able to install it on your Windows PC as well as your Linux server.

Basic Syntax:
The most basic form of an FFmpeg command

ffmpeg -i input_filename output_filename.extension

"ffmpeg" reads from an arbitrary number of input "files", specified by the -i option, and writes to an arbitrary number of output "files", which are specified by output filename.

import os
Input_file_path = '/home/xyz/Input_file_path.mp3'
Output_file_path = '/home/xyz/'(Path to store converted file)
os.system("ffmpeg -i "+Input_file_path+" -strict experimental "+Output_file_path+".extension")

This will convert the video/Audio to required formats.
