reply. My comment was clearly about Handbeake's stated use of the x264 decoder, not about the H.264 codec.
You would do well to heed your own advice. Review the posts in the chain you replied to.
A brief summary to help you out:
I wrote: "How much does the DEcoder cost?" (#295)
To which TenoBell replied: "Are you planning to go into the media playback business?" (#298)
Quoting that, you wrote: "What part of free and open-source does he keep missing." (#299)
You do that often, switching topics and then claiming someone else switched topics. Not at all clever, and not lost on the readers here.
The h.264 decoder is neither free nor open source. What part of "proprietary and requires fees" do you keep missing?
Please understand that I'm not the one telling web publishers that they need to spend thousands of dollars recoding their sites just to make my browser look good, and for video pay my consortium fees for the privilege. If the irrational business proposition that represents that makes you uncomfortable don't shoot the messenger, take it to the source.
