[FFmpeg-devel] higher-level libs?

Well, it does do more then that. It can be as simple as:

dec = new Decoder()
enc = new Encoder()
trans = new Transcoder(dec, enc)

Take a look at the Decoder.h from fobs, it's really high level stuff.
Since it is C++ it shouldn't be hard to use SWIG to create wrappers
for whatever language you want. Believe me when I say that I've tried
finding higher lever libs for ffmpeg, and Fobs is about as good as it
gets. And if it doesn't do something you want, the code is very easy
to read, and modifying it shouldn't be hard at all.

If you put tomfoolery into a computer, nothing comes out but
tomfoolery. But this tomfoolery, having passed through a very
expensive machine, is somehow ennobled and no one dares criticize it.
