Introduction to AV Foundation Level: Intermediate

A session at CocoaConf

Friday 12th August, 2011

3:15pm to 4:15pm (EST)

AV Foundation, introduced in iOS 4, offers broad and deep media functionality to third-party apps. Working from a "media document" model, it provides APIs for audio and video capture, editing, playback, and export. Developed in parallel with the iOS version of iMovie (which it powers), AV Foundation is a sensible first choice for most media needs on iOS, and is so compelling that it is being added to Mac OS X in Lion. In this session, we'll survey the kinds of features AV Foundation provides (and note the cases where you'd want to use something else, like Core Audio), and then dig into the basics of its capture, playback, and editing features.
