Intel Media SDK White papers

Intel Media SDK White papers

Petter Larsson's white paper "Muxing with Intel Media Software Development Kit" is available for download.

Abstract: This article presents a method that can be used to perform muxing of encoded media generated by Intel Media SDK. The article details how to use audio/video codec components part of Intel Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel IPP) samples to create a muxing solution based on the Intel Media SDK sample_encode project.

As always, we are interested in your feedback. We're looking forward to providing more content on Intel Media SDK interoperability, including demux,in the future.

Follow-up white paper"Demuxing with Intel Media Software Development Kit" now also available on Intel Software Network (ISN).

A new white paper on the topic of "Video Conferencing features of Intel Media Software Development Kit" has been published on Intel Visual Computing Source portal here:

The paper explains how to use Media SDK 2012 to develop applications in the context of video conferencing and streaming.

please provide some white papers or links about developing voice recognition system using Intel Media SDK

Hello,I'm sorry, Intel Media SDK is centered around video codecs. It does not provide any voice recognition features.Regards,Petter

thnx for the reply petter

what are the various video format supported by Intel Media SDK?

Does Intel Mdeia SDK have support for capturing and stroing video from the webcams ?

It is a great SDK for high performace video solutions!I really would like to cover up the application with some xaml and c# for best UI experiences designed with MS Expression Blend 4.I wonder if You could provide some managed wrapping solutions or guidelines in order to use the low level Intel Media SDK.We are interested in Intelvideo conferencing and streaming examples!Thank You,Robert Banegas

Robert and abdulahad1985,

Please refer to the Media SDK FAQ on this forum for more details about the SDK and the supported codecs. further information about the SDK and to download the package please go here: both of you seem to have an interest in video conferencing or streaming I also suggest checking out this white paper:

The Intel Media SDK package comes with a range of samples, including a video conferencing sample and set of sample DShow filters that can be used to quickly prototype camera input workloads.

The SDK does not provide any wrapper for managed solutions to like for instance C#, but this interface can be built by developer using for instance the PInvoke construct. We know of some developers that have pursued this path (there are some interactions on the topic on this forum).


Is their an opportunity of adding Twilio integration for voice task handling

Hi Christos,

Intel Media SDK is an SDK focusing on video codecs. I do not see any direct opportunity to integrate with such solution, but I say that without knowing any details about Twilio. That said, feel free to experiment with the SDK to explore how it could be used in your context. We would love to hear about innovative usages.


Dear Intel Media SDK community.

We are happy to announce availability of a new Intel Media SDK white paper. The title is:
"Integrating Intel® Media SDK with FFmpeg for mux/demuxing and audio encode/decode usages"


The white paper details how Intel Media SDK can be used together with the popular FFmpeg suite of components to perform container muxing and demuxing (splitting). Rudimentary integration of FFmpeg audio decode and encode is also showcased.

If this is a topic on interest to you check out the paper and supplied source code project and let us know if you have any feedback.

The Intel Media SDK Team.

Good news at the tail end of this week.

We just published a new article that we hope will be very useful for developers interested in using Intel Media SDK. The new article present common SDK usages via a quick-start tutorial to help developers get the most traction in the shortest amount of time. The guide shows how to use the Intel Media SDK by walking step-by-step through use case examples from simple to increasingly more complex usages. By understanding key Intel Media SDK use cases, including integration with popular external components, you’ll be up and coding in no time.

The tutorial covers many well established usages but a few new ones like how to integrate Intel Media SDK with FFmpeg to realize full end-to-end media transcode. For a full listing of the code samples covered by the tutorial please navigate to the tutorial index page:

Please let us know what you think. Feedback on this forum is welcome.

The Intel Media SDK Team 

The Intel Media SDK Tutorial has been updated:

- 3 new new samples showcasing how to integrate Intel Media SDK with Intel OpenCL* SDK.
- Several bug fixes 
- Various small improvements

I'm reading video conferencing white paper (, and several images are broken (figure-5 and figure-6) . Can somebody ping Intel web team about that?



Hi Alex,

I checked the link and all the image links look fine from here. Do you still see the issue?


FFmpeg based muxing's reliability and 24x7 operation should  be there any one who have some quality and reliability  feedback for ffmpeg based audio and video muxing after encodeing video only using Media sdk
