Delivering Superior User Experience with the Fluendo Multi-Media Codec Pack on the IGEL OS – Podcast Episode 294
In episode 294, Douglas Brown interviews Matthias Haas, Chief Technology Officer at IGEL Technology and Alex Fernández, Sales Director at Fluendo. Matthias and Alex discuss the benefits of the Fluendo multimedia codec pack, why it is important for delivering a great user experience, how it delivers, how to implement, along with a bit about the future of HD graphics and much more!
Founded in late 2004 in Barcelona, Fluendo was created with the objective of providing a legal solution for multimedia playback by means of an Open and cross-platform framework called GStreamer.
For more than 10 years, Fluendo has always been at the forefront building legal multimedia products always developed under this versatile framework and actively contributing to the GStreamer community growth.
As a result of an huge collaborative task, GStreamer has established itself as the de-facto standard multimedia framework for GNU/Linux and UNIX systems. GStreamer is a development framework to create applications like media players, video editors, streaming media broadcasters, etc. as well as other software components like codecs, filters, muxers or demuxers. GStreamer is free and open source and is released under the LGPL V2 license, allowing developers to also use it in commercial or closed applications.
From a technical standpoint, the GStreamer framework was designed to make it easy to write applications that handle audio and video, giving the developer the ability to process any kind of flow. From a user’s point of view, GStreamer’s dramatically enhances the multimedia experience: audio and video files run smoother while memory consumption is minimized.
