I was wondering if there was a way to use python to convert a video to flash and add controls online. Like youtube, a user uploads a video and it gets converted and controls get added.

I have looked online and everyone says "Use this extension blah blah blah" and i am not looking to use php extensions. There could be other languages i could use to do this but im not sure what they could be.

Any help is much appreciated.

I have another way of doing the controls its just the conversion i need to do.
