Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 cannot produce encoded video streams. It is intended for other purposes.
You can use UMC video encoder from IPP Samples to encode *.yuv files into MPEG2 and MPEG4 files. If you already have Visual Studio you also need latest IPP. IPP and IPP Samples can be downloded from the Intel Registration Center.
If you have any questions concerned with IPP or IPP Samples you can ask it at the IPP Forum.
MS Visual studio 2008 is a good IDE, while you may integrate Intel C++ compiler with VS2008, you still can MS C++ complier built-in MS-VC++.
You have many alternatives to start programming with media formats and files, so you first need to decide which library you will utilize in your project (you may use more than one library within the same project, but you need begin by getting familiar with one at a time). MS Direct Show is a very common choice. Intel Media SDK is also a choice you must consider, Intel IPP is great choice as well and it is a lower level API than Intel Media SDK, choosing between Intel IPP and Intel Media SDK depends on the technical requirements of your project.
Please choose a library for your implementation, and contact me if you require additional support.
Intel IPP, Intel Media SDK, and MS Direct Show provides the functionality to generate mpeg and mp4 Video. Intel Media SDK and MS Direct Show may have some limitations working with MP4, these limitations are related the Windows OS system you are targeting (Win 7,
Sorry for the broken link. Here is a right one: IPP Forum.

Thanks for taking time out to assist me,but do you know that i don't have intel compiler and the IPP you mentioned i don't know where to get it.
For the meantime am using MSVC++ but as you have said it doesn't have the neccessary header files to do graphics and audio( or does it have,pls tell me which header file in particular).For instance it does not have
Pls note that am new to mp3 and mp4 (audio and video) and the use of appropriate libraries in programe compilation. But all am saying is an assistance as to what can do similar coding for a beginner like me in MSVC++ for now pls..
I will appreciate some sample codes.
Thanks for the info but how i wish you can help further by showing some sample codes and especially linking me to me where i can download that IPP software.
Thanks for your concern once again.
Here are the links to the download page of each of the libraries, sorted according to my recommendation to you, in order to start media programming smoothly (please start with just one of these).
1. Intel Media SDK: http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/media/
2. MS Direct Show, it is part Windows Server 2003 R2 Platform SDK Full Download: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=484269e2-3b89-47e3-8eb7-1f2b...
3. Intel IPP will be shipped within Intel C++ compiler package, you may download a 30 days trial version at: http://software.intel.com/en-us/intel-compilers/
Also, this article will give you additional information about IPP: http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/ipp-downloads-registration-and-licensing/
After you decide which of these libraries you will use, download it, install it, and then you file find some very useful samples, tutorials, and guides to accomplish your first, as well as your future advanced media program.
Words are not enough to thank you for your great concern and time to time advice as regards my new area of programming(media).
Now I want to shut up and try out these things you've mentioned and I promise to get back to you in due course.I don't want you to lose tourch with me.
Thanks a lot teacher.
It is my pleasure to help you, Im glad to know that now you are on your right way. I hope I read your future posts on Intel Media SDK forum, and/or Intel Integrated Performance Primitives forum.
My game (or should I say animation sample code is available) is ready.
I will give a hyperlink to clike on.
I used MSVC++ since I don't still have an Intel C++ compiler.
Don't forget to still find more assistance for me on Directdraw and DirectInput.
Thanks in anticipation.
