Instructions for running shortGPT

This guide provides step-by-step instructions for installing ImageMagick and FFmpeg on your system, which are both required to do automated editing. Once installed, you can proceed to run runShortGPT.py successfully.

Prerequisites

Before you begin, ensure that you have the following prerequisites installed on your system:

  • Python 3.x
  • Pip (Python package installer)

Installation Steps

Follow the instructions below to install ImageMagick, FFmpeg, and clone the shortGPT repository:

Step 1: Install ImageMagick

  1. For Windows download the installer from the official ImageMagick website and follow the installation instructions.

    https://imagemagick.org/script/download.php

  2. For Ubuntu/Debian-based systems, use the command:

    sudo apt-get install imagemagick
    

    Then run the following command to fix a moviepy Imagemagick policy.xml incompatibility problem:

    !sed -i '/<policy domain="path" rights="none" pattern="@\*"/d' /etc/ImageMagick-6/policy.xml
    
  3. For macOS using Homebrew, use the command:

    brew install imagemagick
    
  4. Verify the installation by running the following command:

    convert --version
    

    You should see the ImageMagick version information if the installation was successful.

Step 2: Install FFmpeg (REQUIRED FOR SHORTGPT TO WORK)

  1. For WindowsDownload the FFmpeg binaries from this Windows Installer (It will download ffmpeg, ffprobe and add it to your path).

    https://github.com/icedterminal/ffmpeg-installer/releases/tag/6.0.0.20230306

  2. For macOS using Homebrew, use the command:

    brew install ffmpeg
    

    For Ubuntu/Debian-based systems, use the command:

    sudo apt-get install ffmpeg
    
  3. Verify the installation by running the following command:

    ffmpeg -version
    

    You should see the FFmpeg version information if the installation was successful.

Step 3: Clone the shortGPT Repository

  1. Open a terminal or command prompt.
  2. Execute the following command to clone the shortGPT repository:
    git clone https://github.com/rayventura/shortgpt.git
    

Step 4: Install Python Dependencies

  1. Open a terminal or command prompt.

  2. Navigate to the directory where runShortGPT.py is located (the cloned repo).

  3. Execute the following command to install the required Python dependencies:

    pip install -r requirements.txt
    

    This command will install the necessary packages specified in the requirements.txt file.

Running runShortGPT.py Web Interface

Once you have successfully installed ImageMagick, FFmpeg, and the Python dependencies, you can run runShortGPT.py by following these steps:

  1. Open a terminal or command prompt.
  2. Navigate to the directory where runShortGPT.py is located (the cloned repo).
  3. Execute the following command to run the script:
    python runShortGPT.py
    
  4. After running the script, a Gradio interface should open at your local host on port 31415 (http://localhost:31415).

Putting API Keys

The ShortGPT UI needs you to input at least OpenAI and ElevenLabs api keys for running short automations. For video automations, you will also need to add a Pexels API.

Follow these steps to add your OpenAI and ElevenLabs API keys:

  1. Open http://localhost:31415/?__theme=light from a web browser.
  2. Click on the config tab located at the left side bar of the user interface.
  3. Add your OPENAI API KEY and ELEVENLABS API KEY in the corresponding input fields.
  4. Click Save to save your API keys.

That’s it! You have successfully set up your API keys and can now utilize the functionality of ShortGPT in the Gradio interface.
