Determine codec?

Post by Keiko1981 » Aug 1st, '15, 07:12

I need a little help when it comes to determine codecs of videos when using MediaInfo.

Code: Select all

Video
ID                                       : 1
Format                                   : AVC
Format/Info                              : Advanced Video Codec
Format profile                           : Main@L3
Format settings, CABAC                   : Yes
Format settings, ReFrames                : 2 frames
Codec ID                                 : avc1
Codec ID/Info                            : Advanced Video Coding
Duration                                 : 14mn 58s
Bit rate                                 : 800 Kbps
Maximum bit rate                         : 3 096 Kbps
Width                                    : 704 pixels
Height                                   : 396 pixels
Display aspect ratio                     : 16:9
Frame rate mode                          : Constant
Frame rate                               : 29.970 fps
Color space                              : YUV
Chroma subsampling                       : 4:2:0
Bit depth                                : 8 bits
Scan type                                : Progressive
Bits/(Pixel*Frame)                       : 0.096
Stream size                              : 85.7 MiB (89%)
Title                                    : Imported with GPAC 0.4.6-DEV (internal rev. 5)
Writing library                          : x264 core 112 r1834 a51816a
Encoding settings                        : cabac=1 / ref=1 / deblock=1:0:0 / analyse=0x1:0 / me=dia / subme=2 / psy=1 / psy_rd=0.00:0.00 / mixed_ref=0 / me_range=16 / chroma_me=1 / trellis=0 / 8x8dct=0 / cqm=0 / deadzone=21,11 / fast_pskip=1 / chroma_qp_offset=0 / threads=8 / sliced_threads=0 / nr=0 / decimate=1 / interlaced=0 / constrained_intra=0 / bframes=3 / b_pyramid=0 / b_adapt=1 / b_bias=0 / direct=3 / weightb=0 / open_gop=0 / weightp=2 / keyint=250 / keyint_min=25 / scenecut=40 / intra_refresh=0 / rc_lookahead=40 / rc=abr / mbtree=1 / bitrate=800 / ratetol=1.0 / qcomp=0.60 / qpmin=10 / qpmax=51 / qpstep=4 / ip_ratio=1.41 / aq=1:1.00
What should I use when writing out codecs in file names?

Codec ID: AVC1
or
Writing library: x264

AVC means the same thing as H264 (the standard has two names for some reason).
People who put the video codec in the filename would usually write x264(which is the program used to encode H264 videos) or H264 for those files.
I think x264 is more common.
