Well spotted ..
And they give you the source too.
Thanks to the respondents. I will check that out. So then Adobe does not have such an SDK? or it is expensive? does either handle flv?
I don't know of any Adobe SDK style tools for video conversion.
Many folks use ffmpeg for video conversion, which is a free open source command line video conversion tool: http://ffmpeg.org/
For most of my work I use Camtasia, which often acts like a swiss army knife; but it is a client tool; not an SDK style thing that you can program against.
This doesn't count as "programmatically" either but another possible option:
(Free Video to Flash Converter)
Free Video to Flash Converter. Convert video to flash (SWF or FLV) to publish video on your web site or blog.
Convert *.avi, *.mpeg, *.mpg, *.mp4, *.m4v, *.wmv, *.asf, *.mov, *.qt, *.3gp, *.3g2, *.dvr-ms. *.flv video files to ready for web *.flv and *.swf files.
For example convert avi to flv, mp4 to flv, mpeg to flv, mpg to flv, wmv to flv, mov to flv, 3gp to flv.
Free Video to Flash Converter contains no spyware or adware. It's clearly free and absolutely safe to install and run.
It's free for both personal and commercial use.
I've seen this before, but for some reason (maybe I'm being dense) when I dl/installed the exe here it only gave me one of the tools listed as far as I could tell, and I couldn't find any info about the one I actually wanted in my brief search.
I was looking for one of these:
- JPEG2SWF Takes one or more JPEG pictures and generates a SWF slideshow from them. Supports motion estimation compression (h.263) for better compression of video sequences.
- PNG2SWF Like JPEG2SWF, only for PNGs.
Am I missing the obvious here?
Yeah it looks like it's a C command line tool--that also needs to be compiled.
