Note: You must install the LEADTOOLS Imaging Pro SDK (or higher) to build this demo.


Demonstrates the use of the audio callback filter to process each audio sample. The demo changes the volume of the audio stream.


A player demo that demonstrates how to use the Video Callback Filter and the NULL renderer of the Multimedia toolkit to implement your own video rendering using Windows GDI


Demonstrates joining media files with the same format without recompression, using the capabilities of the Multimedia toolkit.

Demonstrates the file to file conversion capabilities of the Multimedia toolkit.
Demonstrates the klv file-to-file conversion capabilities of the Multimedia toolkit.
Demonstrates how to add a user data stream containing KLV metadata to an MPEG-2 Transport stream using Minimal Metadata Set.
Demonstrates how to create Smooth Streaming Files.
Demonstrates how to add Script Metadata Streams to a Windows Media file.
