x264: “The Best Video Encoder In The Worldâ€

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Lawrence D'Oliveiro, Feb 26, 2010.

  1. Surprising to learn that H.264 owes most of its success, not to any
    proprietary encoder implementations, but to one released under the GPL:
    x264.

    Here <http://x264dev.multimedia.cx/?p=164> one of x264’s developers explains
    why the proprietary vendors get the encoding so wrong.

    And from here <http://x264dev.multimedia.cx/?p=292>:

    Youtube, Facebook, Hulu, and Vimeo all use ffmpeg and x264. Adobe’s
    H.264 encoder in Flash Media Encoder is so utterly awful that it is far
    worse than ffmpeg’s H.263 or Theora; they’re practically assuming users
    will go use x264 instead.
