According to heise.de (German) (http://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/48307), Dicas (http://www.dicas.de/) is offering a free h.264 VwF codec. Baseline profile only.

I haven't tried it myself so no assertions about quality/speed.

I'm going to try this
I did a short unscientific test with this.
Video: 640x256, 25 fps, 400 kbps
Looks pretty good for a beta (alpha?) with cbr encoding only and is much faster than I expected.
seems that im to late, its locked now
does anyone have free h.264 VwF codec, Baseline profile only??
thnks in advance
According to Doom9 forum MPEG-4 sticky:
"- Baseline Profile offers I/P-Frames, supports progressive and CAVLC only"
thats mean you need to turn off CABAC and use 0 b frames.
EDIT: btw, the Dicas h264 vfw is too old, and the quality is worst than old version of x264(before core 50).
