#6863 reopened enhancement

Integration of GoPro Decoder/Encoder

Description

The current Cineform codec in FFMPEG (version 3.4 at time of submitting this ticket) is not correctly playing back all footage. e.g. https://trac.ffmpeg.org/ticket/6675

Is it possible to use the recently open sourced official Cineform codec (Oct 2017). The goal would be to improve replay quality and to add the ability to encode to this format?

Github repo is found here:

By 'use' I mean it possible to either assess suitability of directly integrating the codec, or to use information from the repo to improve the existing codec within FFMPEG?

Why set it to wontfix ?
Is it a legal, technical or other reason ?

  • Resolution wontfix deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened

Could you please explain the won't fix status? It would be very helpful to understand the challenges of adopting the codec.

Wontfix should not have been added.

I'm happy to provide test footage if anyone needs it. This is a very useful intermediate codec for post-production work, rivalling the almost-ubiquitous prores for speed and quality. But unlike proRes it has been open-sourced—something I can't see apple doing any time soon.
