X264 h.264


Howdy. I saw a couple threads about adding the ability to read/write compressed video formats via JUCE with lots of “nothing is implemented, learn to use FFmpeg”. I’m not sure if anyone was aware, but there is this open-source version of the h.264 codec released by Cisco: https://github.com/cisco/openh264

There’s also this open-source version of just the encoder written by the folks at VideoLan.org: https://github.com/mirror/x264

Perhaps we could bring h264 encoding/decoding of the JUCE image format to produce mp4s natively into JUCE, just like how zlib was added?
