      Does it support AV1 encoding or is it decoding-only?

        How secure (or insecure) is GStreamer?

          This is exactly what I was wondering. A library & framework that purely does media decoding/encoding is dangerous enough if not properly sandboxed, but they've tacked all this networking (WebRTC) stuff onto it too making it even more potentially dangerous.

            Was MP2 audio *still* patented till not long ago? These days there must be plenty devs that weren't born when MP2 came out.

              The last patents just expired: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...MPEG-2_patents

                The mp3 patents never seemed to effect me. I've always been able to easily get an Open Source mp3 decoder/encoder codec on my gnu/linux systems and whenever I downloaded music via p2p services, it was almost always mp3.

                Somewhat ironically, now that mp3 patents have expired, I no longer use mp3 much as it's inferior to AAC and opus.

                  MPEG-1 Part-3 was often used as audio codec for e.g. DVDs, which uses the MPEG-2 Part 2 Video codec, leading to confusion.
                  MPEG-2 Part-3 is also a backwards compatible extension of MPEG-1 Part 3.
                  MPEG-1 Part-3 Layer II is a subset of Layer III (aka MP3)

                    I think this MPEG-1 Part-3 Layer II, aka MPEG-1 Audio Layer II can be used as a soundtrack in DVD video?

                    okay, wikipedia solved that little "mystery" for me

                    All DVD-Video players in PAL countries contain stereo MP2 decoders, making MP2 a possible competitor to Dolby Digital in these markets. DVD-Video players in NTSC countries are not required to decode MP2 audio, although most do. While some DVD recorders store audio in MP2 and many consumer-authored DVDs use the format, commercial DVDs with MP2 soundtracks are rare.
                    MP2 is a simpler, older, worse variant of mp3 i.e. it sucks at 112 or 128 kbps ; but is good at very high bitrate (max is 384 kbps). Smaller frame size than MP3 and AAC.
