Schaller: H264 in Fedora Workstation

Linux Weekly News - szo, 2016-05-14 00:11

At his blog, Christian Schaller discusses the details of the OpenH264 media codec from Cisco, which is now available in Fedora. In particular, he notes that the codec only handle the H.264 "Baseline" profile. "So as you might guess from the name Baseline, the Baseline profile is pretty much at the bottom of the H264 profile list and thus any file encoded with another profile of H264 will not work with it. The profile you need for most online videos is the High profile. If you encode a file using OpenH264 though it will work with any decoder that can do Baseline or higher, which is basically every one of them." Wim Taymans of GStreamer is looking at improving the codec with Cisco's OpenH264 team.
