Transcoding is the conversion of a digital media file, such as a video or audio file, from one format to another. For example, you could convert a media file from one encoding to another. Convert a media file from one resolution to another, in which case you may or may not keep the same encoding. Or trim a media file, in which case you may or may not keep the same encoding and resolution.
For an example of using a custom decoder, see the Media extension sample.
The Windows.Media.Transcoding API transcode a video file from one format to another.
