Need a python app that runs ffprobe on the command line

Python 2.7.x

Run on Ubuntu [url removed, login to view] and above.

I need an app that runs a program called ffprobe (part of the Ffmpeg project [url removed, login to view]) on the command line in linux and runs through directories recursively. It needs to be setup to return parts of the output from ffprobe (like file size, type, bit rate, dimensions, audio tracks, file path, frames per second, audio frequency, video and audio codec, mimie type, etc) and insert it into a .csv file that can be imported into a spreadsheet. Needs to be written in python and able to execute from command line with a directory as the input.

Should be a very basic product, nothing fancy. No GUI, no options, just needs to return info from media files and spit it into a spreadsheet.

Running ffprobe: ffprobe -show_streams -show_format returns a ton of info.

We have low level experience with ffmpeg library and its utilities. Also we have done lots of scripts to generate csv files from various data sources. So let's get on it.
