MP4<->AVI container conversion and clipping software

Hi,
I'm looking for a software solution for a customer, which can convert existing MP4 files to AVI file and vice versa without reencoding. In addition, the files may be clipped too (with or without container conversion).

The customer does NOT want a free (GNU etc.) based solution, so I'm limited to commercial products (I know...).

The solution must be Windows-based, either a command-line tool or an SDK I can integrate into the application (Visual Studio / .NET 3.5).

There's also a requirement for an MP3<->WAV conversion utility/library, but I guess this should be quite easy to find. If the same solution can handle audio too, it would be great.


Any ideas?

Thanks,
Ury

  • Windows 7 includes an MP4 demuxer and muxer, and an MP3 encoder. They can be used freely.
  • Intel Media SDK.
  • Elecard and Mainconcept Codec SDKs. Prepare to pay big money for commercial use of their (de)muxers and codecs.
  • Haali has an MP4 demuxer and muxer, but I don't know if they are available for commercial licensing.

Why? There are both LGPL and BSD-licensed projects which won't affect the licensing or use of your program in any way.

Thanks for the reply!
I'm afraid the target OS is Windows XP (yep).
Regarding the fear of GPL-like projects, all I can say is that the customer's always right.

I'll look into the SDKs you mentioned (I'm already waiting on quotes from some of them).
