    Multimedia Converter licensing or Activex?

    A half year ago, I asked for the possibilities to license the Multimedia Converter console application. The answer was: 'not possible'.

    I'm still waiting for something helpful from Nokia that allows developers to easily incorporate a 3gp-engine in their apps. An Activex-control would be great. Nokia can compile this in a day, using the source code from Multimedia Converter. But it doesn't happen.

    Quote from your own pages:
    "Nokia's Internet strategy regarding video content is to ensure the availability of 3GPP content creation tools and/or transcoding solutions."

    But there are no tools available for developers, and even consumers can't get the compiled apps (MMConverter needs to be downloaded from the Forum site).

    Nokia, get your act together. We've developed a bestseller multimedia application for Pocket PC Phone devices, because Microsoft provides all the media tools needed to build it for FREE. Windows Media Player Activex Control, Windows Media Encoder SDK, the whole lot.

    License your stuff, or provide the tools, but don't ask every developer to write complicated time consuming stuf such as 3gp encoding tools themselves. That's not rational economics and that doesn't help the 3GP platform or Nokia in the long run.

    Hi,

    Are you trying to implement a client application running in the terminal or server-side application?

    Best regards,

    We develop tools that allow consumers to easily convert multimedia content into optimised files that play on mobile devices. It makes conversion a two-click operation. The software itself runs on the PC side, the converted movies on the mobile device.
