Leadtools.Multimedia Introduction

The LEADTOOLS Multimedia SDK is designed to provide developers with a full range of tools required to create professional, high-quality multimedia applications. With it you can add multimedia functionality such as Capture, Play, and Convert, as well as the latest DirectShow filters and multimedia file support. You can load/convert to and from many common file formats, such as WAV, AVI, WMA, WMV, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, OGG, FLV, MKV, WebM, and others. All in all, nearly 100 formats, media types, and subtypes are supported, with full control over compression.

LEADTOOLS Multimedia SDK

The LEADTOOLS toolkit is flexible and gives you full control over the input, middle and output samples:

Input data can come from any of the following sources:

Data can be output to:

The input streams can be very different (MPEG-2 Transport over RTP, UDP or TCP/IP, RTSP server feeding RTP packets, http stream, etc.) However, as far as your application is concerned, all you have to do is set the stream's URL as the source and the toolkit handles the rest. The output is handled in the same way: set the output to a URL and the toolkit will take care of streaming the data.
