VP3 codec

Hi there has anyone used this codec from On2 technologies? It claims to record 1min=2mb. The codec is freeware and open source too.

chrome ;0)

I think there is a capture program too, but you will need Core Media Player etc to playback the video on another pc.

On what resolution? :confused: :stuck_out_tongue:

Hi Wookie, here are the settings that my show up on my pc:

Video size 320x240
Frame rate 10 15 30 fps
Audio 16bit
Channels Mono
Frequency 44100hz

The audio could be restricted on my pc as I am using an onboard soundcard (mobo ECS K7S5A), I guess if you had a Soundblaster etc you would be allowed to change options.

Hope that helps!

The codec also works with Virtual Dub, I couldn’t find any configuration settings, but followed someone’s post for the following:

Use target data rate of 128kbps
Force keyframes every 300 frames

It did work but the quality was poor (settings I guess?) and it did drop many frames. Better to stick with their capture program.

With their capture program it did work as claimed!!
