24<para><application>FFmpeg</application> is a solution to record, convert and
25stream audio and video. It is a very fast video and audio converter and it can
26also acquire from a live audio/video source. Designed to be intuitive, the
27command-line interface (<command>ffmpeg</command>) tries to figure out all the
28parameters, when possible. <application>FFmpeg</application> can also convert
29from any sample rate to any other, and resize video on the fly with a high
30quality polyphase filter. <application>FFmpeg</application> can use a
31video4linux compatible video source and any Open Sound System audio
32source.</para>
