babycat.exceptions

Contains all built-in exceptions raised by Babycat.

However, Babycat does raise a few exceptions that are not included in this module, such as like FileNotFoundError.

exception BabycatError

Bases: Exception

Parent class for all Babycat exceptions.

exception FeatureNotCompiled

Bases: babycat.exceptions.BabycatError

Raised when you are trying to use a feature that wasn’t included at compile-time.

exception WrongTimeOffset

Bases: babycat.exceptions.BabycatError

Raised when start_time_milliseconds and/or end_time_milliseconds is invalid.

For example, this exception is raised if you specify an end_time_milliseconds that would actually be before the start_time_milliseconds.

exception WrongNumChannels

Bases: babycat.exceptions.BabycatError

Raised when you want more channels than the audio has.

For example, if you passed num_channels = 3 as a decoding argument, but the audio file only has two channels, then we’ll raise this exception.

exception WrongNumChannelsAndMono

Bases: babycat.exceptions.WrongNumChannels

Raised when the user sets both convert_to_mono = True and num_channels = 1.

The num_channels flag is used to select the first channel in a (potentially) multi-channel audio file. the convert_to_mono flag takes all selected channels and flattens them into a mono channel. It is redundant to set num_channels = 1 and also convert_to_mono = True.

exception CannotZeroPadWithoutSpecifiedLength

Bases: babycat.exceptions.BabycatError

Raised when zero_pad_ending is set without setting end_time_milliseconds.

The zero_pad_ending argument is used to pad the ending of an audio waveform with zeros if the audio file runs out of audio from offsets start_time_milliseconds to end_time_milliseconds.

If you have not set an end_time_milliseconds, then Babycat will return all of the audio from start_time_milliseconds to the end of the audio file. In this context, zero_pad_ending = True is not meaningful.

exception UnknownInputEncoding

Bases: babycat.exceptions.BabycatError

Raised when we failed to detect valid audio in the input data.

exception UnknownDecodeError

Bases: babycat.exceptions.BabycatError

Raised when we failed to decode the input audio stream, but we don’t know why.

exception UnknownEncodeError

Bases: babycat.exceptions.BabycatError

Raised when we failed to encode an audio stream into an output format.

exception ResamplingError

Bases: babycat.exceptions.BabycatError

Raised when we failed to resample the waveform.

exception WrongFrameRate

Bases: babycat.exceptions.BabycatError

Raised when the user set frame_rate_hz to a value that we cannot resample to.

exception WrongFrameRateRatio

Bases: babycat.exceptions.WrongFrameRate

Raised when frame_rate_hz would upsample or downsample by a factor >= 256.

The ratio between frame_rate_hz and the audio’s original frame rate has to be less than 256–in both cases where frame_rate_hz is less than the audio’s frame rate (downsampling) or greater than the audio’s frame rate (upsampling).
