Fraunhofer MP3 patent expired
 
Hi,

I just stumbled over this.

https://www.iis.fraunhofer.de/en/ff/...odecs/mp3.html

Looks like the next Slackware release will be able to ship MP3 encoders.

Cheers,

Niki

Good stuff. Very useful for DAWs as well.

Yeah looks like other Distro's are already making the changes.

the h264 and h265 codecs are patented (like the mp3 one was)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.264/MPEG-4_AVC
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_E...y_Video_Coding

the x264 and x265 softwares (used to encode and decode those codecs) are GPL (lame is LGPL).

The next version of Slackware is gonna rock!

No pun intended.

ponce 05-07-2017 03:27 AM

I wanna Slack!

USUARIONUEVO 05-07-2017 02:42 PM

is this part of expired patents ?

Fraunhofer FDK AAC ?

If yes, i think good to ADD , for m4a support in ffmpeg.

Please read about the differences between MP3 (old) and AAC (new) audio codecs. If you do that, your question would not be necessary.
