Fluendo provides MPEG2, MPEG4 part2, VC1 (WMV 9) and H.264 decoding.
We are so excited to see the Portable Media Player and Sub Notebook market expansion with GNU/Linux solutions. Our Fluendo codec pack, which now is a mix of software and hardware codecs, has been fully optimized and I can't wait to have one of those tiny and lite MIDs, netbooks and nettops reading Full HD movies with our codecs !, said Julien Moutte, Fluendo co-founder and CEO.
Bringing Internet and media usage to small, affordable devices is a great opportunity to expand internet usage throughout the world, said Doug Fisher, Intel vice president and general manager, System Software Division.
Fluendo’s video decoders leveraging the Intel Atom processor’s hardware acceleration coupled with Moblin, the open source software stack optimized for Atom based platforms allows customers to play sought-after content with a “PC-like” experience on a smaller device.
