  • MP4 video playback on Linux without ffmpeg/libav

  • Streaming video over WebRTC using FFmpeg (and why it's a bad idea)

    - This is interesting. Do you know which of the WebRTC clients struggle with high profile? I am genuinely interested and want to try out a library that is baseline only. All hw devices support high profile these days, so if the browser is plugged into the hardware, that should not be an issue. The last modern software decoding library that was previously limited to baseline was openh264 (which is/was often used by WebRTC), but that was fixed in openh264 v 2.0.0 in May 2019. If you are the author, would you be kind enough to share an example of a baseline-only client?
