Introduction To Xuggler MediaTools


(Eclipse Users:  See here for how to set up eclipse to write Xuggler programs.)

The MediaTools are a collection of Java classes that make it even easier to decode, encode, modify and use video with Xuggler.  We’ve put together some videos showing what you can do with the API.  And for those people who prefer the harder way, don’t worry, the existing Xuggler API is still fully supported (and in fact accessible from a MediaTool).  Enjoy!

Part 2: Modifying & Creating Media

To go along with the movie, you can now read the companion novel showing even more cool things you can do with MediaTools (like making thumnails of a video, or using a webcam, or capturing screenshots, etc.).  You can find that tutorial here.

    Thanks for the videos. Can you tell me, how can we do the same thing with streams ? For example i have VLC player who is streaming RTC packets on localhost:2010. Can i decode and encode it, so that i can view the stream in my flash player ?

If you are like me and have had to use FFMPEG in a project (Java in my case), you know how hard it can be to get everything working correctly. Xuggler has some how made this even more easy than with their 1.0 version. Through the use of their MediaTool you can do some incredible stuff; the stuff that should have been possible with JMF! Do yourself a favor and check out their post about the MediaTool. […]
