Hi,

We have a java web application where users will be submitting videos. I'm trying to write a java program that is able to convert any movie file into compressed SWF video and FLV streaming video formats. The code should convert almost all popular file extensions such as AVI, MPEG, WMV, ASF and 3GP.

I've never worked with filestreaming etc before, so I would appreciate any insight you can provide on how I can go about doing this.

Thanks.

Working with video is nontrivial. The Java Multimedia Framework supports a fraction of the functionality you require. My advice is search for a product that can do what you require and buy it. Adobe Flash CS3 Professional is $700. It includes Flash Video Encoder which may do what you require, and it's much cheaper than the time it would cost you to get up to speed on encoding video and writing your own encoder for each format/codec you want to support.

Maybe you can take advantage of what others have already done. HeyWatch is an online encoding service with a REST API. Just an idea, I haven't used it.

I've also been told that ffmpeg (encoding) and flvtool2 (metadata) work well together. Again, I've no first hand experience with them, but maybe they're something to get you started.

we need something that can convert the video at runtime (eg. YouTube). NOT a manual tool!!!

ffmpeg and flvtool2 can be started from Java using ProcessBuilder, wihout manual intervention. See Pauline's post above.

Welcome to JavaRanch

You have arrived a bit late on that thread, however; once a thread is that old it is probably best to let it rest in peace!

Thank you

I think that this thread isn't too old. It's actual.
