At the Fall 2010 edition of the Voices That Matter: iPhone Developers Conference in Philadelphia, attendees got an introduction to AV Foundation, the comprehensive new media framework introduced in iOS 4. At its basic level, AV Foundation offers a straightforward option for playback of any iOS-supported media type -- including streaming formats such as HTTP Live Streaming -- and developers who take the next step gain powerful capture, editing, and export features.
In this new session for 2011, we'll recap these abilities and move on to advanced uses of AV Foundation. In addition to capturing audio and video to a file, we'll look at how to use your own code to process in the incoming data on the fly. To make your video editor more complete, we'll see how Core Animation ties into AV Foundation to provide titles and effects, and how these can be exported out with your finished product. Finally, we'll look at the latest additions to the AV Foundation framework, such as the AVAssetReader and AVAssetWriter APIs, which give you the ability to work at the level of individual media samples, and more.
