LEADTOOLS DVD Module

The LEADTOOLS DVD Module extends the LEADTOOLS Multimedia toolkit by adding functionality for programmatically creating, capturing, authoring, burning, and playing DVD images.

DVD images created with the LEADTOOLS DVD Module can be played back using DVD player software or burned to DVD for playback using a DVD player or drive. The LEADTOOLS DVD Module has everything you need to create and burn DVD images, including a DVD writer to create images, DVD burner, MPEG-2 and MPEG-1 multiplexers, MPEG Audio encoder, LEAD MPEG-2 Standard video codec (Encoder/Decoder), and several DirectShow filters & Media Foundation Transforms to resize and crop videos, as well as filters to convert video color spaces. It also includes an object for extracting DVD metadata information (art cover, cast info, release year, chapter information, etc).

What's Included in the LEADTOOLS DVD Module?

  • DVD Creation - Create data and video DVDs. Convert any multimedia file including AVI, ASF, WMV, MPG, MP3, OGG and MOV to a DVD image (VOB, IFO files).
  • Capture directly to a DVD image - Capture live video directly to a DVD image.
  • DVD Authoring - Titles, chapters, menus, background video/image.
  • DVD Burning - Burn DVD image(s) or ISO files to DVD -R, DVD +R, DVD -RW, DVD+RW, DVD+R DL, as well as CD -R, CD -RW, CD +RW and CD+RW.
  • DVD Playback- Navigate DVD menus and play DVDs.
  • DVD Conversion - Convert a DVD to any other DirectShow & Media Foundation supported format with complete control over titles and chapters to convert.

LEADTOOLS DVD Module includes fully enabled development licenses for the following components:

LEAD MPEG-2 Multiplexer

  • Create MPEG-2 program files.
  • Supported video compressions:
    • MPEG1 (ISO/IEC 11172-2)
    • MPEG2 (ISO/IEC 13818-2)
    • MPEG4 (ISO/IEC 14496-2)
    • H.264 (ISO/IEC 14496-10)
  • Supported audio compressions:
    • MPEG-1 (ISO/IEC 11172-3)
    • AC3 (preferred audio compression for DVDs)
    • LPCM (uncompressed DVD audio)
    • AAC (preferred audio compression for MP4)

LEAD MPEG-2 Demultiplexer

  • Parses the following streams:
    • MPEG-2 Program specified in ISO/IEC 13818-1
    • MPEG-1 System specified in ISO/IEC 11172-1
    • Elementary stream data (also known as raw video or raw audio data)
  • Supported video compressions:
    • MPEG1 (ISO/IEC 11172-2)
    • MPEG2 (ISO/IEC 13818-2)
    • MPEG4 (ISO/IEC 14496-2)
    • H.264 (ISO/IEC 14496-10)
  • Supported audio compressions:
    • MPEG-1 (ISO/IEC 11172-3)
    • AC3 (preferred audio compression for DVDs)
    • LPCM (uncompressed DVD audio)
    • AAC (preferred audio compression for MP4)

The Frame Rate Control filter provides changes the frame rate of the passing video stream.

Play, convert or capture only a specific rectangular area within the video.

Deinterlaces video with a pattern, deinterlaces only a region of interest (rectangle), and specifies segments in the video to deinterlace and how to deinterlace the segment (no deinterlace, interlace, deinterlace with pattern). Includes an “Auto Deinterlace” option to check the video for interlacing and apply deinterlacing only if necessary.

Resizes the video by adjusting the width and height of the frames using normal resize, resample bilinear, bicubic or Bresenham interpolation.

Flips, reverses, rotates video 90, 180, and 270 degrees. Very useful when certain devices capture video in a rotated state.

  • Easily create 1080 and 720 HDTV video.
  • MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 streams.
  • Low, main & high profiles implementation.
  • Inter-prediction accuracy of 1/2 pixel.
  • Preprocessing frame-rate adjustment.
  • Fixed and variable bit rate compression options with a wide range of quality factors.
  • Preset compression options for VCD, SVCD and DVD.
