Decoder lib: real-time recording to H.264, HEVC, DNxHD, ProRes, DV and more

An integrated decoding solution for MPlatfrom SDK.

Decoder lib is an add-on for MPlatform that plays back H.264, MPEG-2, M-JPEG, DVCPRO HD, MXF, MP4, QuickTime and a bunch of other industry standard formats. Decoder Lib is available for a 30-day trial as part of the MPlatform download.


Multiple formats - one package


  • All supported formats are packed into a single component, which can be interfaced via MPlatform's simple set of programming methods.
  • No third-party decoders or splitters will be required in the majority of use cases.
  • No interference from other codecs installed on the system.


Ready for live broadcast


  • Designed for 24/7 crash-free performance: the decoding process is independent of the main application and will auto-recover on fail (i.e. bad file).
  • Stability is tested via extreme automated testing procedures.


Advanced playback features


  • Gapless multi-format playback.
  • Fast frame-accurate seeking.
  • Reverse playback.
  • Growing files playback (playback-while-recording) when used with Encoder Lib.
  • Supports files with multiple audio tracks (such as multi-language MXF or GXF). Seamless switching between audio tracks or MPEG-2 TS programs during playback.
  • Supports external audio files.
  • Supports timecode playback and seeking by timecode for MOV, MXF, and GXF files.
  • Detailed file information available in XML format.
  • Supports closed captions (Closed Captions Lib required).
