Re: HEVC licensing

Copied from the Cinelerra GG website:

"Thereís news from the codec world.

The promising new codec named AV1 has been released in version 0.1. This new version promises much better processing speeds. The AV1 is mainly based on VP9 and additions from Daala, Thor and VP10. Compared to H.264 and H.265, this codec compresses much more, the files are about half the size, with the same picture quality.

The AV1 codec development is being pushed forward by Mozilla, Google, Cisco, Amazon, Netflix, AMD, ARM, Intel and Nvidia under the umbrella of the company AOMedia to replace the expensive and licensed codecís h.264 and h.265."

Let's hope it does what it is designed for, but it's too late for all of us that have cameras with h.264 or h.265. Who doesn't? I suppose firmware updates are out of the question?:-)

Yes they are because cameras use dedicated chipsets to encode.

Clearly you should not be using H.265-based cameras for anything or, as anecdotally evidenced here, you open yourself open to legal liability.
