Convert JPEG's to animation

I'm capturing JPEG images that I need to turn into a time lapse.    I tried using the Animator.class applet from java (great freeware from sun), but it runs out of memory.  I've also created a javascript that loads the next image in the series, but it's not a great method.

I'd prefer to convert them into a MPEG.  Anyone know of some good libraries to convert them?  Windows platform.  I'm working in .NET, but Win32 calls are fine too.  Or, do I have any other options that you can think of?

Thanks,
Chris

Oh, I should add.  I capture the JPEG images using a windows service and I'd prefer to have this service do the conversion too.

If you have a folder of files in numbered sequence, even though its not handled by some windows service, it would be much easier to just use Open Image Sequence via QuickTime Pro, which would also handle exporting them as MPEG.

MakeAVI is a simple Windows application to assemble a series of JPG (or other formats) images into an AVI file (video). This functionality facilitates making time-lapse movies or stop-motion animations.

http://makeavi.sourceforge.net/

http://sourceforge.net/projects/makeavi/

The executable and the Source Code is available.

Hope this helps!
