  • A unified interface to popular codecs (see Supported Formats).
  • Runs under PowerShell Core on Windows, MacOS and Linux (Windows PowerShell 5.1 is also supported).

  • PowerShell interface brings powerful integration and scripting capabilities.
  • The API is open-source, well-documented and extensible.
