I need to create a console application that would run under Free BSD that read VOB Files (From a DVD) or WMV files and convert it into quicktime or WMV file format.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

however you can check out the /usr/ports/multimedia/transcode
ohh, seems like you want to write it
yourself, in that case you may look
at the source code of the utility :)
You want to convert WMV files into WMV? ;-)
You need to understand the DVD structure first. the VOBs contain many video & audio streams. A good place to start would be to have your program first demultiplex the audio/video into their raw streams. The conversion is then up to you. This, of course, is assuming that you are trying to convert a non-retail dvd as this would entail removing the CSS copy-protection.
