I want to do a Program, It can be encode, convert video from other formats

So I need a program In C, C++ with these function, work in a LinuxComputer:
- Get file in this format (flv, mvk, avi ...), convert to other format (flv, mvk, avi ...) with difirent Bitrate
- Get frame of this file, convert to other format In a buffer (in memory/disk) for Players. Players can access this buffer to run video
(Like streaming?)

I need minimum source code, module to do this. Not need all solution like StreamingServer!

This work may be deep in technical?

Thank you!
