  • If I want to switch to exporting/creating video files with an alternative, royalty-free codec, and be able to do everything I was doing with H.264/265 in pretty much the same way (except with older programs and sites that don't support this uploading videos with this codec), which one should I use?
    You could implement that in your software through FFmpeg's x264 encoder. It's FOSS, and all the code is on Github.

    The core EDL data processing and compression engine is powered by FFMPEG (ffmpeg.org). The JPL-developed custom software application layer is comprised of approximately 20,000 lines of code. All other functionality is provided by open-source software projects. The total software storage footprint is less than 100 MB. During the 7-minute EDL sequence, the EDLCAM system is expected to generate and store more than 40 GB of camera and microphone data.
