FFmpeg is an open source utility that allows Linux, Windows and Mac OS X users to playback, convert, record and stream video and audio files. It is used in almost all Linux distributions. It is a command-line software that can encode, decode, demux, mux, transcode, stream, play and filter almost any media format available. FFmpeg uses libavcodec, the most advanced audio/video codec library for Linux and UNIX-like systems.

Features at a glance

The software is comprised of a multimedia streaming server for live broadcasts, a simple media player based on the powerful SDL library, a simple multimedia stream analyzer, a library that contains functions for simplifying programming, and another library that includes muxers and demuxers for multimedia container formats.
