Provides classes and other programming elements needed to create properties for media formats.


Describes the format of an audio stream.

Describes a media container format.

Provides properties for getting H.264 profile ids.

Describes the format of an image stream.

Describes the encoding profile for an audio or video file. The encoding profile includes descriptions of the audio and video encoding formats, and a description of the media container.

Provides properties for getting the standard names for media subtypes.

Represents a set of media properties.

Represents ratios used in media operations.

Provides properties for getting MPEG-2 profile ids.

Describes the format of a video stream.


Describes the format of a media stream or media container.


Describes the level of quality of the audio encoding. The higher the quality, the better the audio fidelity, and the larger the resulting file.

The quality of encoded audio is determined by several factors.

  • The number of channels represented. One channel for monophonic, and two channels for stereo.
  • The digital sampling rate. This must be at least double the frequency of the highest pitch you want to reproduce.
  • The digital sampling resolution. This is also known as the bit-depth. + 8-bit provides a low resolution with 256 descrete levels.
  • 16-bit provides a moderate resolution with 65,536 descrete levels.
  • 24-bit and 32-bit provide high resolutions.

  • The amount of lossy compression used to encode the audio.
