Fluendo S.A. today announced the latest release of its multimedia codec pack, V7
Fluendo is an established leading provider of multimedia codecs on the GNU/Linux Market. Fluendo has developed a set of audio and video decoders. Fluendo supports and contributes to the development of the GStreamer multimedia framework, which is emerging as the standard media framework on Linux platforms. This includes support for all main software platforms, as OpenSolaris for example.
It is now several years since Fluendo has started selling on line its codec pack, to help all Linux users enhance their multimedia experience with high quality decoders. Now with its last release V7 Fluendo offers to the users a full set of codecs, and all users of OpenSolaris are now able to enjoy them.
- The new Fluendo codec pack V7 includes
- Windows Media Audio Decoder (Windows Media 7, 8, 9, 10, Pro, Lossless and Speech)
- Windows Media Video Decoder (Windows Media 7, 8, 9 and VC1)

The full pack is available on all main Linux distributions (RedHat, Ubuntu, Mandriva, Xandros, Solaris, Suze, Fedora) and for different hardware platforms, x86, 32 and 64 bits.
“We are really proud to be able to propose this new pack to users, which includes real evolution from the last one, like new codecs integrated (Divx3 and LPCM), HD TV playback enabled, H264 and AAC available for 64 bits architecture. Fluendo has always worked listening to the user's need, and the availability of our codecs on OpenSolaris has always been one of the questions we had. Enabling our full codec pack on OpenSolaris has been a challenge we are happy to have reached together with the Sun team,” said Julien Moutte, Fluendo co-founder and CEO. “We have the objective to keep on working to increase the list of our codecs and platforms supported, so feel free to connect to our brand new webshop at http://www.fluendo.com and give us your feedback”.
