[Ffmpeg-devel] [RFC] remove support for AMR NB fixed-point
Sun Apr 22 14:53:49 CEST 2007
I would like to remove support for AMR NB, fixed-point version.
The feature is non-essential, we have support for the floating-point
The support we currently have is extremely hackish, external source code
needs to be imported into FFmpeg. For AMR NB floating-point version
there now exist proper libraries. Removing support might motivate
somebody to do this for the fixed-point version as well.
Furthermore, the AMR libraries are non-free. If they are imported into
FFmpeg, the resulting FFmpeg libraries and binaries are undistributable.
This is not something we should be encouraging.
