    converting audio and video files in C++

    i am pretty new to writin in C/C++ but i have decided to try and write a programme which will convert audio files into mp3 and also video (particularly dvd) into mp4 (to be played on the psp n ipod video).

    i was wondering if anyone could give me an idea of where i should start (i.e. sites with info and topics i should look at).

    Try looking for libraries in google... this is probably non-trivial as the standards are not all in the public domain. Good luck.

    You can start by looking at the LAME Project. LAME is an open source MP3 encoder.

    A site that has lots of information about various encoding and file formats is wotsit.org.

    Or, a better option is usually to use existing codecs in your program. If you are programming Windows, you can find out about using a codec on MSDN, or in the Windows Platform SDK or the DirectX SDK.
