Cisco has decided to pay the MPEG LA licensing cap fee and will be open sourcing, as well as providing free binary blobs to browser providers, for H.264
in order to push it's adoption in WebRTC
This is obviously a push for their video conferencing products, and I can't say I am entirely happy about the binary situation (only currently planned for X86
), but I figure something is better than nothing, right?
