    Codec Search


    Hello,
    I am planning to make a streaming video player for my final year project. But after looking into it closely, developing a codec seemz way beyond me. Can neone tell me where can I find codec sources that I would be able to integrate in my project.
    This way I'll only be required to code the streaming and the playing part and use the ready codec.
    Also can neone tell me which are the most widely used streaming file formats. (One used by most sites... preferably news sites coz that will be more impressive in the demo)

    Thanking you in advance.

    Mplayer

    You should take a look about mplayer code or ffmpeg code. They uses libavcodec and libavformat libraries to decode/encode audio and video.

    They support also streaming codecs like h.263.
    When using Windows, have you ever told "Ehi... do your business?"

    Integer Only

    Hey,
    Sorry. I should have mentioned that I need an integer-only codec. FFMpeg seemz to be a floating point codec. I'm not planning to do it on desktop.
