OpenH264

Jump to: navigation, search

This page contains details about agreement in between Cisco and openSUSE project

Background

openSUSE Project has more than 100 000 users which is the current limit for free redistribution of Cisco's OpenH264 codec.

We were inspired by Fedora and started a discussion regarding how to simplify codec installation in openSUSE.

We have approached Cisco and agreed on re-distribution via a Cisco-owned infrastructure to openSUSE users.

Source and License

The code source is available at https://github.com/cisco/openh264 under a BSD license. The binary is released under this agreement from Cisco: http://www.openh264.org/BINARY_LICENSE.txt

Where is OpenH264 built?

Open264 codec for openSUSE is currently built inside a hidden OBS project multimedia:libs:cisco-openh264. The project is accessible only to maintainers. This is currently Pharaoh_Atem Talk - ContributionsPharaoh_Atem Talk - Contributions, justaugustus Talk - Contributions (Cisco), jdetiber Talk - Contributions (Cisco), and lkocman Talk - Contributions The Current OpenH264 package reviewers consist of Community as well as Cisco employees User:Pharaoh_Atem User:Pharaoh_Atem, justaugustus Talk - Contributions (Cisco), jdetiber Talk - Contributions (Cisco)

At the moment we can build OpenH264 packages for Fedora, Debian, and openSUSE. We're open to discussion

How is OpenH264 distributed??

For the time being the current workflow is to send Cisco an email with an archive containing OpenH264 rpm packages to Cisco.

We've already discussed potential improvements to the existing workflow but we're trying to make one step at a time.

Archive with binary packages is generated by a script from OSRT and attached to an email sent to one of our Cisco contacts. http://ciscobinary.openh264.org/

The repository metadata is published by OBS under https://codecs.opensuse.org/openh264/

Installation

If the repository is not enabled by default on your system, then you can install openSUSE-repos which includes the repo definition. Installing gstreamer-1.20-plugin-openh264 will also automatically pull-in libopenh264-7, and mozilla-openh264.

Alternatively you can enable repo manually by running

 # Leap
 sudo zypper ar http://codecs.opensuse.org/openh264/openSUSE_Leap repo-openh264
 
 # Tumbleweed or MicroOS  
 sudo zypper ar http://codecs.opensuse.org/openh264/openSUSE_Tumbleweed repo-openh264
 
 # Installation
 sudo zypper in gstreamer-1.20-plugin-openh264

Agreement about the content of the archive

The .zip archive must be created and sent by one of multimedia:libs:cisco-openh264 project maintainers (a reliable person).

The archive must contain only packages with Cisco OpenH264 and related OpenH264 GStreamer plugins. The package will be signed in OBS by openSUSE key, so the origin of the package can be verified.

The addition of any other content outside of our agreement (especially other codecs) to the archive would lead to a violation of the re-distribution agreement with Cisco.

Which files are currently hosted on the Cisco infra

This section is here for the time being until we establish improved delivery pipeline.

Contents of the 15.4.zip archive handed over to Cisco. This archive was then extracted on the ciscobinary host on 14th of December by jdetiber Talk - Contributions . Archive with rpms was generated by OSRT from openSUSE:Factory:openh264:POST

Manual publishing workflow

The current workflow is handled via set of scripts in openSUSE Release Tools (OSRT). Docs can be found here.
