Video Formats Test Results

Video: 4.2.3

Notes from Jay's testing in tdf#79468:

Did extensive testing of all video formats on a clean installation of Ubuntu 14.04 with the only installation being the ubuntu-restricted-extras package from the software center (list of package dependencies). Testing was done by converting a video file (8-minute 848x480 MKV[AVC 23.810 fps/AAC 128 kbps 44100 Hz]) to all these formats in mainly QWinFF and a few in Curlew (mp4a, ogv). ... after more testing i see that installing the libav-tools package is needed as it will reduce the load time of the videos.

  • Using Ubuntu's LibreOffice 4.2.3 (linking against GStreamer 1.0)
