    however some H.264 are wrapped around encrypted containers, so it is necessary to decrypt the container to decode the content.
    there is still a software patent issue, though. at least for those in the US :]

    AMD has taken that support pretty seriously over the years. Oprofile should be more than enough proof of that (A systemwide profiler not unlike what's offered by Intel's VTune- for free and as FOSS...think about that one for a bit...). The stuff they've done in recent days with ATI's info should be proof enough of that as well- though, I will opine that it's taken them longer than they ought to for starting the whole ball rolling and it's taking longer than they probably ought to be taking on getting some of the key pieces in place, though it IS all coming together all the same. This is another good example from them.

    Thanks AMD. It's really appreciated. Honest.

    ...or maybe something other than tcore?
    The article will cover in detail what is being released and the status

    Anyways, what I couldn't get was the license. Under what license is this being released?
    Checking the project's site in SourceForge should give you an idea.

    BTW, the license is Apache License V2.0 (http://sourceforge.net/projects/framewave/)
