This project is a modification of the SharePoint PKS system http://www.codeplex.com/pks to enable server side reencoding of videos. Since the SharePoint Podcasting System only supports .wmv files and the vast majority of media is in alternate formats there is a great need for this feature. Especially if you plan on installing the pks system in a production environment.
