Does anyone know the visual basic 2008/ 2010 vb source code for a video converter? (converts popular video formats like mp4, avi, flv to one another)

thank you..

VB?! Very, very unlikely... I would not waste any time trying to find it. Do be serious.

could you suggest a certain programming language then? i really would like to know how to make like one...


Perhaps this would get you started? A Video Converter in Visual Basic .NET[^]

thanks.. the code works.. it's just that it could only convert files to flv...i hope there would be codes for the other formats as well...

but anyway, thank you so much..

Well, this solution is not really in VB.NET, it simply uses ffmpeg, which is a good thing. It is written in C. No matter, there are no chances to find a solution in VB.NET anyway, I think. It could be P/Invoked. So, I voted 5. At least it practically works.

I added some info to your answer and answered a follow-up question on languages, please see.
[Answering a follow-up question about language]

I cannot suggest the language for you to use as it depends on so many factors. I can only say what people use to solve some serious problems; in this way, you would have more chances to find a solution. In this field, you will find most of the codes in C++ or C, probably much less in C#. Just a fact of life, without discussing of real benefits or downsides.

Now, the interesting solution found by Walt is also C (see[^],[^]), but you can use P/Invoke to import the methods in you .NET project.

I added a fix to the text -- it is C.
