I've been a moderator here since February 2014. I've done audio/visual production work as a mix of hobbyist and professional levels for the past 17 years. While my career is a software architect, I studied Electronic Media, Arts and Communications in college as a dual major (with Computer Science). I have worked professionally as a producer (doing both the audio and video) for distance education classes while in college. In addition, I produced the 3D animated intro video for all the distance education classes. I also worked with the paid Audio and Lighting organizations in college.

I have run the DVD Production efforts for Wiicafe covering the Electronic Entertainment Expo from 2002 to 2006 and also ran a wedding videography business for several years. I have since moved on to a wedding photography business after my second camera man moved away. Finally, I also production work for several annual conferences and have worked with multiple music festivals over the years.

I got my start working with crappy gear for non-profits and worked my way up through better levels of gear and training as I moved in to a professional level of work and then further improved through my college studies. I have also been the sound and at times video guy for the various churches I've been in over the years.

that's still a far cry different from being "the only codec that can play on mobile".

There are far more options than just h.264 that will play on mobile. Webm and any number of other formats also play well on mobile. h.264 is simply not the only option, nor is it necessarily the best one, particularly if they can do a transcode after capture.

comment Why is there a ā€œ2Dā€ disc in every Blu-Ray 3D package?
Except that doesn't hold up. Lots of people buy 2d stuff even for their 3d player and either way, if they "knew we would buy 3d" then they don't need to include a 2d disk. The fact is that there isn't space for content on the 3d disk (because of the extra size) that can fit on the 2d disk and it isn't economical to make a special disk for special features when it is already on a 2d disk. Mastering is the expensive part of a production disk run. The disks themselves are simply stamped from the master. Fewer production lines = better bottom line.

I'm sorry, but your question is currently stated in a way that it is not clear what you are asking. Please edit your question to make it more clear what you are asking and it can be reopened.

@gsk-frank - wavelet compression can describe similarities in any dimension. This can apply to x and y coordinates within a block or between frames. Wavelet compression can be applied to a single image. Look up jpeg2000.

I believe it uses wavelet compression, which is vaguely similar to JPEG-2000 (not the same as jpg). It is more advanced than JPG or PNG.

The detailed version would be to look at the ISO spec. H.264 is MPEG-4 Part 10. Wikipedia's article acts as a nice starting point. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.264/MPEG-4_AVC

H.264? It is it's own format.

comment What are some alternatives to Pro Presenter 5?
The only thing I see that this has that ProPresenter does not is the ability to do numerous independent layers. If this is what you were looking for, could you update your question to be more clear about what you were trying to do?
