Hi List,

I have a Transcoder application that will do the conversion between the several media types. I am using 'FFMpeg' for best performance. Problem is , when a conversion request comes with UAProf url, I can get the all container that is supported by the particular handset not codec detail. How can I decide codec in this case ?

Will all codec that is supported by the container, also be supported by the Handset?

As Example : Nokia handset support audio/3gpp2 container. And this container support both audio/aac and audio/evrc codecs. Will this handset support both codecs ?

Please help me.

Thanks in advance,
