The main part of av_convert is a C API for accessing audio/video files (AVI, Quicktime, YUV4MPEG stream, WAV, etc.).
Version: 0.2.2av_convert consists of some tools for the manipulation of video files.
Operating System: Linux
In more detail av_rec can capture live video and audio from any v4l framegrabber device. The program av_convert can convert between some video file formats and provide basic editing functions.
This includes extracting arbitrary parts out of different video files and combining them in one destination file. Information about videos, such as length and contained audio and video streams can be obtained by av_info.
All the functionality needed for accessing the audio and video stored in file containers is provided by a library (libVideoFile). This functionality includes frame exact positioning in the audio and video streams and decoding/encoding of the compressed data stored in the files.
The different file types and audio/video codecs are handled by individual plugin modules. These I/O backends and codecs are loaded by libVideoFile at runtime. For now, there are plugins for the most important file formats like AVI (including extension for large files), Quicktime, MPEG/DVD, YUV4MPEG stream, WAV, mp3, etc.
