I have (and still am) considering ffmpeg. It was what I was alluding to 
with the mention of a command line utility called by shell() in my 
original post. To bundle the macOS (~35mb) and Windows (~77mb) adds that 
size (or that compressed) to my Standalone, so my app can install it on 
the users system (I have the sort of computer novice customers that you 
do NOT want to ask to download additional software of). That's not too 
bad a size increase as my App sits at about 200-230mb currently.

Still, I asked the USE-LIST as you never know whether some one out there 
has made a widget that could just be part of the standalone app or 
someone knows of a clever technique or a smaller utility

Thank you.
