    Free video codec for commercial use, usable in mmf

    I'm trying to track down a good video codec that free to use for commercial use, and can be inserted in mmf applications. I know there's an ogg directshow filter available, has anyone used it in mmf. I think you can wrap it in ogm format.

    Is there anything else someone can recommend?

    I haven't seen a good avi compression that's also low on file size, and the audio and video tend to get out of synch.

    Anyone know if swf is free for commercial use?

    no unfortunately, xvid uses Mpeg4 which requires a license for commercial use. Actually I found a similar post about this on another forum, same questions being asked.
    People are recommending Theora, but I'd have no idea on how to implement such a thing into mmf2 dev.

    Re: Free video codec for commercial use, usable in mmf

    Windows Video (WMV) or Theora http://theora.org/
    http://v2v.cc/~j/ffmpeg2theora/ The FFMPEG app is a really handy commandline encoder. So if you make a batch file with the standard encoding commands with the filename as a variable then you can assign a right click to the batch file as your encoding solution.
    Code:
    @echo Please wait For Transcode to complete...
    @ping localhost -n 3 >nul
    echo c:\windows\codecs\FFMPEG2T -a 4 -A 63 -H 22050 -v 5 -V 500 -K 100 %1 -o "F:\TV\recordings\%~n1.ogv">c:\windows\codecs\go11.bat
    rem echo if %~z1 GTR 5000 del %1>>c:\windows\codecs\go11.bat
    call c:\windows\codecs\go11.bat
    msg /time:8 * Converted to Theora!
    This is the code for the batch file. If you create a codecs folder in the windows folder and copy The FFmpeg theora exe in here and then rename it to FFMPEG2T.EXE also make sure the output is going to the right folder mine is on the F drive but you can change this.

    This will encode a video file using Theora Codev and the audio will be converted to 2205 Hz at 63 kbs. You can change these options but for what I want it's good enough.

    Hope this gives you something to work with.
    The Theora codecs are already packaged in an installer on the website. Works with the Direct Show Plugin.

    Ross,

    That works great! Thanks so much for sharing that hey. I haven't tried it with a video that includes audio yet, but it seems to be running just fine in mmf so far.

    Audio shouldn't be a problem. They're handled separately from the video.

    Re: Free video codec for commercial use, usable in

    Sorry to raise this thread from the dead...

    I'm having a little issue with sound using the above mentioned theora and directShow.

    Basicly I'm not getting any
    Looking in the debugger; it says the volume = 0, I'm not sure how to bring that volume up, as the volume action in direct show doesn't seem to effect it.

    Perhaps I need to convert from an avi/wmv of different settings?

    DJFuego? Could you slap me in the right direction?

    Use the tricks to play a swf file in your program (search for examples there are many), and then have that swf file load an flv. Or just embed the video in the swf. Everyone has Flash installed.

    Thanks Pkeod, but I thought there might be some commercial license required for swf in a product. I'm guessing wrong hey?

    You can distribute swf files that you own freely. Soon MMF2 will be able to compile to the swf format!
