Video converter component for C#/.NET (wrapper for ffmpeg command line tool). Can convert video/audio files, transcode live streams, extract video thumbnails, apply watermarks to video, screen capture etc - everything that is possible with ffmpeg from the command line. Supports .NET streams for input/output (encode/decode without tmp files).

This LT-version nuget package does NOT include ffmpeg.exe and is suitable for cross-platform deployments (Windows, Linux/Docker, Mac-OS) or using a ffmpeg build/version of your choice.
NOTE: LT nuget is not available for free users. Please contact if you want to get a demo key for evaluation/testing purposes.

How to use:

var ffmpeg = new NReco.VideoConverter.FFMpegConverter();
NReco.VideoConverter.License.SetLicenseKey("your_id", "your_license_key");
ffmpeg.FFMpegExeName = "ffmpeg.exe"; // for Linux/MacOS: "ffmpeg"
ffmpeg.FFMpegToolPath = "<path_to_folder_with_ffmpeg>";
ffmpeg.ConvertMedia("input.avi",null,"output.mp4",null,new ConvertSettings());

v.1.2.1 changes:
- fixed issue that can occur when "Stop" method is called (NullReferenceException at AsyncStreamReader.WaitUtilEOF)

v.1.2.0 changes:
- dropped legacy targets: now only netstandard2.0 and net45 builds are supported
- now relative paths (both for input/output) are resolved in respect to the current working directory, not to ffmpeg location (FFMpegToolPath)
- fixed an issue when FFMpegException didn't reflect the last error line from ffmpeg console log output
