The GPAC open-source multimedia project is now one decade old and in that time has seen 5,000 commits. Developers behind GPAC have written into Phoronix to explain their Linux-supportive multimedia crusade.

Romain Bouqueau of the GPAC project had written in to share these milestones with Phoronix and explained " It deals with multimedia. It features a mp4 packager called MP4Box, widely used by the people at doom9, and is the default mp4 packager for x264. We also have others tools for editing, streaming and playback. And this is a free software ported to any possible platforms including most Linux distributions (package) and BSDs and Open Solaris etc."

The GPAC open-source project features a multimedia client (Osmo4/MP4Client), a multimedia packager (MP4Box), and various server tools. GPAC is written in C and can run on most platforms, including iOS and even Symbian and Windows Mobile.
