Web-based Video/Audio File Converter We need a website where people can convert video and audio files to other formats. We will want the ability to limit the conversions according to time (allowing only X number of conversions per X minutes) and also a max number of conversions. The website should allow the download of a YouTube video (.flv) from a specified URL and convert it to a user-specified format (.mpg .mov .mp4 .wmv or .3gp). The file types for conversion are listed below: Video Windows .mpg Windows .avi Mac .mov iPod/PSP/iPhone .mp4 Windows .wmv Flash .flv Mobile .3gp Audio Audio .mp3 Audio .wav The website should work on all major browsers. We have a specific workflow we want to integrate into the conversion process on the website. This will involve passing parameters via a cookie session and then using those parameters to obtain the file from the user-specified URL, convert it, and output the converted file for download by the user. I will clarify this more in one-on-one communication during the bid process if needed.

Hello to everyone bidding on and looking at our project... we are going to change the scope. I will refine the description with the changes. Basically, we are going to focus on the website/script portion of the project only at this time. We will issue two other additional projects: 1) a windows-based program "shell" which will essentially be a custom web browser that will access the website script above... and then 2) we will issue a project that will focus on the windows program that will do the video/audio conversions on the user's PC (without accessing a web script for the conversion). I hope this makes sense and do apologize for any confusion. Please bid on the project with this in mind. We need to move quickly on making a decision so we can get started.
