Title: Free h.264 VfW codec by Dicas
Post by: Gecko on 2004-06-16 18:45:00
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.

Direct download: http://www.mpegable.biz/download/AVC/mpegableAVC-Setup.msi (http://www.mpegable.biz/download/AVC/mpegableAVC-Setup.msi)

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

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.

X264VfW.
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).
