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 been at the forefront building legal multimedia products developed under this versatile framework and actively contributing to the GStreamer community growth. 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 a free and open-source and is released under the LGPL V2 license, allowing developers to also use it in commercial or closed applications. As a result of this huge collaborative task, GStreamer has established itself as the de-facto standard multimedia framework for GNU/Linux and UNIX systems.
In 2005, Fluendo signed a formal agreement with the most important patent holders in the market -MPEGLA, Microsoft, VIA Licensing, Technicolor & Dolby-. Since then, Fluendo has been one of the only multimedia company worldwide to provide the most complete set of codecs for audio and video, delivered to the client with its corresponding patent licenses for distribution.
