openh264 decoder

Reported by: Antoine Martin Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: trivial Milestone: never
Component: client Version: trunk
Keywords: Cc:


See https://github.com/cisco/openh264 as an alternative to the ffmpeg based decoder.
Limitations (from what I can see on their home page):

  • single threaded
  • yuv420 only??
  • no avx, only mmx!
  • does not look very mature (but is used by firefox)

This is the H.264 de-/encoder that is available on e.g. Fedora and RHEL, where x264 is not available.

comment:3 Changed 4 years ago by Antoine Martin

The performance of this codec is nowhere near enough for us to use.

Our repository provides packages with the x264 encoder and the ffmpeg decoder for both centos (RHEL) and Fedora.
