If I use Media Foundation to create animated videos do I have to pay a license fee? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm confused about the licensing of H264 MP4 technology.

    If I create a Windows 7/8 Media Foundation based application which creates MP4 videos (using H264), and the videos are to be run on Windows machines do I have to pay a license fee?

  • Regarding what I read, from 2010 fee can be applied, so we switched to VP8 to prevent any attempts.

    Thanks for the pointer to VP8, it looks interesting and patent free.
