Multimedia 18: Media Foundation and RTSP

Now that Version 18 has been out for a little over a month, we’ve received a lot of feedback about some of the features our customers are really excited about. This week I’m jumping into LEADTOOLS Multimedia Version 18, which is headlined by the addition of Media Foundation support and a new RTSP Server.

Media Foundation

LEAD Technologies has a strong record of keeping pace with the latest development platforms and technologies. Adding support for Microsoft Media Foundation is much more than just keeping up, it’s also a reflection of our commitment to making difficult development projects simple. In the same way that LEADTOOLS simplified and abstracted DirectShow application development, LEADTOOLS Multimedia SDKs now offer the same benefits for the new Microsoft Media Foundation framework with new components and transforms. Below is a list of controls, processors, codecs, multiplexers and demultiplexers that are supported in Microsoft Media Foundation:

  • Playback, Conversion and Capture controls
  • MPEG-4 Decoder
  • MPEG-4 Encoder
  • H.264 Decoder
  • H.263 Decoder
  • MPEG-2 Decoder
  • AAC Decoder
  • AC3 Encoder
  • AMR Decoder
  • MKV Media Sink
  • MPEG-2 Transport Media Source
  • MPEG-2 Program Media Source
  • ISO Media Source
  • OGG Media Source
  • LEAD FLV Media Source
  • LEAD MKV Media Source
  • LEAD MXF Media Source
  • LEAD Volume Control Transform
  • LEAD Video Deinterlace Transform
  • LEAD Video Callback Transform
  • LEAD Video Resize Transform
  • LEAD Video Rotation Transform
  • LEAD Video Stabilizer Transform
  • LEAD Video Text Overlay Transform

RTSP Server

The next major feature our customers have been asking us about is the new Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) Server. Creating an RTSP Server capable of streaming high quality audio and video data securely and concurrently to hundreds of clients is no small undertaking and can take years to research and develop. Now you can cut that time down to just a couple days.

For a detailed example on how to use the new RTSP Server features, check out our latest article on The Code Project.
