Tools for transcoding, streaming and playing of multimedia files

FFmpeg is the leading multimedia framework, able to decode, encode, transcode, mux, demux, stream, filter and play pretty much anything that humans and machines have created. It supports the most obscure ancient formats up to the cutting edge. This package contains: * ffmpeg: a command line tool to convert multimedia files between formats * ffserver: a multimedia streaming server for live broadcasts * ffplay: a simple media player based on SDL and the FFmpeg libraries * ffprobe: a simple multimedia stream analyzer * qt-faststart: a utility to rearrange Quicktime files


Multimedia player, encoder and transcoder

Libav is a complete, cross-platform solution to decode, encode, record, convert and stream audio and video. This package contains the avplay multimedia player, the avconv audio and video encoder, and the avprobe stream analyzer. They support most existing file formats (AVI, MPEG, OGG, Matroska, ASF...) and encoding formats (MPEG, DivX, MPEG4, AC3, DV...). Additionally, it contains the qt-faststart utility which rearranges Quicktime files to facilitate network streaming. This package replaces the 'ffmpeg' command-line tool that was provided in earlier distroreleases.
