You should start by searching the net to get the various video formats, their structure and framework.

I asked this same question on CodeGurus.com, and they told me a better way of doing it. Since converting the video would be CPU intensive, using a scripting language like Perl wasn't a good way to go about doing it. Plus, converting the video is a bit too complex to just write a script from scratch. The best way to convert the video was to get a command line video convert and have the Perl script call that. That way, the script would be quick an easy to write and the C++ video convertor does most of the work. I went that route and got my script working with the TMPEG command line convertor.
