Transcoding (Windows Store apps using C#/VB/C++ and XAML)
This section describes how to use the Windows.Media.Transcoding API to transcode audio and video files in your Windows Store app using C++, C#, or Visual Basic.
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 samples that use transcoding in a Windows Store app using C++, C#, or Visual Basic, see Transcoding media sample.
For an example of using a custom decoder, see the Media extension sample.
You can use the Windows.Media.Transcoding API to transcode a video files from one format to another.
The MediaTranscoder object can be used to trim a media file.
