Re: [opensuse-factory] RE: [Bug 847971] Chromium from openSUSE has MP3/MP4 support

With no codec support... what's the point of building Chromium? This
is like building VLC with no codec support. It's nice and all but not
really practical for the actual end user.

It is not that there is no longer any codec support. The codecs here are
regarding MP4 and H.264. Those will no longer be supported. Other codecs
should still be supported.

It seems that without those two codecs, html5 starts using webm as the
supported codec. We have to see which codecs we actually really loose and
which ones are still there. The end situation will be the following:

As of this writing (May 5, 2011), Chromium supports standard the following:
Vorbis audio codec
Theora video codec
VP8 video codec
PCM 8-bit unsigned integer
PCM 16-bit signed integer little endian
PCM 32-bit float little endian
Ogg container format
WebM container format
WAV container format

When building with the proprietary codec flag, there would also be support for
MP3 audio codec
AAC audio codec (Main only, not AAC-LC, AAC-SSR, HE-AAC)
H.264 video codec
MP4 container format
