    so i'm a new quality assurance tester in a fairly new company, and new to these forums! =P any ways...

    so my boss (SW lead) needs me to find a vast variety in the three main media types (picture, audio, video)

    meaning i need all different file extensions and encoded with different codecs.

    my first thought was to just use a media converter, but this only results in me having about ten different file extensions, but that doesn't take care of the different codecs being used... or does it?

    i need all this by the end of the week ideally, i know it's not a technical support type of problem, but i think there's got to be someone on here that's been in the industry long enough to give me a quick fix :)

    any ideas, suggestions at all?

    Yes, the media converter will use different codecs to convert the files.

    A good program should have a fair number of codecs with it. You can get the GIMP (a picture editor) and VLC (a media player) for free off the internet, and both have a good number of options to save or convert their files to. I'm sure somebody else will be able to name a few more.

    Your goal doesn't make any sense. What's the purpose of all this?
