The LEADTOOLS DVD Module has everything you need to create and burn DVD images, including DVD Imager interface, DVD writer, Media Writer, MPEG-2 and MPEG-1 multiplexers, MPEG Audio encoder, LEAD MPEG-2 Standard video codec(Encoder /Decoder ), and several DirectShow filters to resize and crop videos, as well as filters to convert video color spaces. The LEADTOOLS DVD Module adds on to the LEADTOOLS Multimedia SDK and includes a fully enabled development license for the following components:

DVD Support (including support for DVD Title /Chapters and burning)



DirectShow Filters

Misc Objects

Obtaining release versions of the DVD Module Specialized Components

You need to unlock the LEADTOOLS DVD module to use the above filters in RELEASE mode. For more information, refer to LEAD DirectShow Modules Evaluation Mechanism.

You can develop and perform testing with the development-only editions of the components, codecs and filters contained in this product. Development-only editions of the codecs display either "LEAD Encoder" or "LEAD Decoder" in the video stream. The video data can be compressed to save disk space. The data has to be decompressed using a video decompressor before you can play (see) it. Development-only editions of the filters and components display a licensing dialog from time to time while the program is running. The development-only editions do not expire but may not be used in a production environment under your license.

In order to deploy the LEADTOOLS DVD module, you must complete, sign and return the Deployment License Application form. You can find the form in the LEADTOOLS Licensing Help File under the topic, "Deployment License Application"). You will also need to procure any necessary deployment licenses. You will be provided with unlock instructions to the release versions of any of these filters or codecs which you wish to license after you have signed the appropriate duplication and distribution license. Release editions will not display a licensing dialog box or LEAD text on the video stream. If you have any questions concerning licensing the codecs/filters, you can contact LEAD licensing at
