FAME project is a set of tools for encoding multimedia content.
It currently consists in the following tools:
libfame is a video encoding library.
It can currently encode MPEG-1 and MPEG-4 rectangular video, as well as MPEG-4 video with arbitrary shape.
Provide bitstreams compliant to the MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 video standards.
Provide a fast implementation of the techniques used in MPEG standards.
Allow the user to choose between different options for speed, compression ratio and quality.
Portability Support many different platforms and architectures.
fame is a multimedia encoder, which captures video from a video4linux device, and optionnaly sound, for MPEG encoding.
It is based on libfame and lame and thus supports the same output formats as these two libraries.
