Default .NET and video (re-)encoding


I'm considering working on a video encoding framework. Essentially a program to re-encode a video file from one format to another, using codecs which are widely distributed. (Codecs commonly found on the average PC.)
Emphasis would be on reformatting - rescaling, cropping - in a visual environment. Is vb.NET a good environment for such an application or would it be wiser to look elsewhere?

Thanks for your input.

Once you know the specification of the video formats you want to work with you would be able to create such an application in almost any language that allows you to do basic file IO. Different languages provides different advatages and disadvantages. In .NET you'll find that you will develop application faster than in for example C++ but you'll most likely get a tad slower application

Hey, Qua. Thanks for responding.

You mean to say that, even if most of the actual processing is performed by external codecs, vb.NET i/o is going to slow down the speed?

No matter which language you use to call your external programs/functions the time taken to execute these will be the same. And if you're not planning to do much processing on your own then you shouldn't worry about speed at all.

You will bottleneck on I/O with most codecs on modern hardware, for certain, regardless of the language.

Not all I/O is equal, tho.
