Hi,

I have a web application that user's are going to be uploading video files with differenct formats (e.g. WOV, AVI, MPEG...).

I need to convert the Videos to a FLASH format (e.g. FLV and SWF). I found out the FFMpeg is the best solution for this:

http://www.oreillynet.com/onjava/blog/2007/04/media_serverside_jmf_or_ffmpeg_1.html

However, when I downloaded the FOB4JMF, I noticed that the .jars are dependent on a .DLL included in the package.

My web application is on a Shared Server, so I can't download a .dll or .exe. So, I am stuck and I don't know get past in dilema; since I can't afford a Dedicated server at the moment.

Does anyone know if there's a FFMPeg out there that is just a .jar with not .dll or .exe involved? Or another alternative to encoding video to flash? The website with have about 1000+ users uploaded videos, so encoding manually is not an option.

Since I haven't dealt with media content before, I would appreciate every suggestion you can give me.
