    Lightbulb batch audio-video mixer

    I know i'm not supposed to expect someone to "write my program for me" but i need just that.

    I'm new to C++ but i need an app pretty quickly, if anyone's up to it.

    --------------------------------------------



    I need an app (can be command line, to make it easier) that can batch mix several (or hundreds) audio files into corresponding videos.

    I'd feed it a text file with two lists of filenames (one list of video and one of audio) and the app would take each video file and replace the audio with the specified audio file.


    I would appreciate such an app greatly.

    Sure. What's the audio and video formats? Give me a month or so to code this for you.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    This should be in the projects/job recruitment forum. Don't repost, it will be moved if you do indeed plan on hiring, that is to say, paying the help you require. Otherwise, you're just plain silly because no one capable is going to do this for you.

    Whoa, whoa, was the first part of that statement just rubbish filler to buffer the second part so it almost sounds like an excuse?

    Alright, well good luck, but if I had to guess, this post will be closed before you find someone to do the work for you.

    really i did. i had a big clunky desktop comp back in 2000 with my VB editor on it, but i've since gotten rid of that computer. I had stopped regularly using VB, so I didn't think to copy it. If you know of a way i can get my hands on it again,t hen i'd probably be able to do this project myself.

    There are several VB editors online, including a free version of Visual Studios.

    I can encode the video how ever would be most convenient, so maybe like mpeg 4, avi and the audio is the same way. mp3, wav or ac3 works.

    I cant believe someone was really willing to try this.
