What does “x264″ mean?

Posted on July 16, 2008. Filed under: Definitions | Tags: |

x264 is a free encoder for various video streams, released under the the GNU General Public License.

It is the most common codec used for high definition releases, thanks to the way files, subtitles etc can be added and removed from it with relative ease.

The codec can be downloaded for free by itself, at http://x264.nl/, or with all the codecs you’ll ever need, bundled into the Combined Community Codec Pack.

“x264 is a free encoder for various video streams, released under the the GNU General Public License.”

it encodes to one format: H.264.

Actually x264 is just the encoding for the video, which is added along with the sound and subtitles to a container format, such as matroska.
