This is excellent news for Fluendo, and we are proud that our software is enabling high quality multimedia on AMD platforms, themselves providing a high level of performance”, she concluded.

By taking this step, Fluendo’s has demonstrated that both their reference framework (GStreamer) and the plugins they develop are adaptable and efficient in different environments and circumstances. Fluendo products are today used by most OEMs for devices such as Desktops, Laptops, Thin Clients, Tablets, Digital Signage, Set-Top Boxes, Connected TV, Media Centers. Also, Fluendo solutions have been adopted by famous companies using Linux internally, to provide their employees with high quality multimedia capabilities, in compliance with patent licenses, and enabling the legal use of these formats on Linux OS.

Fluendo Codec Pack release 15 also adds support to Totem/playbin2 playback in recent distributions, which contains some GStreamer regressions preventing hardware accelerated video playback. Some other improvements in this release include faster seeking support for HTTP streams on ASF demuxer, support for deinterlacing with H264/AVC, and several improvements in AAC and MPEG2 performance. The Fluendo Codec Pack release 15 is available at www.fluendo.com/ shop/product/complete-set-of-playback-plugins/.
