Fluendo S.A. is a private company founded by Pascal Pegaz and co-founded by Julien Moutte, based in Barcelona, Spain. Fluendo aims at improving the global multimedia experience in the Free Software world by funding, developing and maintaining the GStreamer media framework and providing a wide range of, both commercial and free, products on top of it.

Fluendo products[edit]

Fluendo's codecs are their flagship products. They aim to provide a complete solution for playback of proprietary media formats on computing platforms using the GStreamer media framework such as Linux and other Unix-like systems.[1]

In July 2009 Fluendo released the OnePlay DVD Player for Linux systems.[2]

Fluendo products are made available together with their respective patent licenses which means that these codecs are completely legal worldwide. They are currently being sold at Fluendo web shop, Canonical Ltd. store, Mandriva store and Ubuntu Software Center.[3][4]

Projects sponsored by Fluendo[edit]

  • GStreamer, framework for multimedia application development. Fluendo developed the 0.10.x series which are widely used in today's Linux distributions.
  • Pitivi, a non linear video editor for the Free Software desktop. Fluendo hired the lead developer of that project for two years.
  • Cortado, an open source Java applet featuring a lightweight implementation of GStreamer in Java with royalty free codecs like Theora and Vorbis. This applet allows content producers to use royalty free formats without worrying about the end user media player capabilities.
  • Theora, a royalty free codec. Fluendo funded the Xiph Foundation for enhancing and fixing Theora implementation so that it becomes usable for production environments.
  • Theora and Vorbis RTP specifications. Streaming using royalty-free codecs with the RTP protocol was something the community needed. Fluendo funded that project.
