LEADTOOLS Media Streaming C API Introduction


The LEADTOOLS Media Streaming C API provides developers with the full range of tools for quickly and easily creating professional, high-quality multimedia streaming applications that can stream to any device. Just a few lines of code are all that is needed to add multimedia streaming that supports industry standard protocols from single-source videos.

The API, written in Windows Native Code for exceptional performance, is ideal for developers who wish to create servers or web sites for streaming large amounts of multimedia content. The API makes it easy to stream the video stored in one format (MP4) to any available device. Source files are stored as MP4 and are automatically converted from MP4 to the required format for the device on which the video is being viewed.

The API makes it possible for live streaming from a variety of sources. Streams with compatible H264 data can be streamed without recompression, while others will be recompressed on-the-fly using H264 video and AAC audio compression.
