LongoMatch OpenSource

The OpenSource project history

The LongoMatch open source project has been running steady since 2008, developed by Andoni Morales, Senior Developer of Fluendo, and it's been slowly growing a strong community of athletes, coaches, referees and video analysts.

Since 2014, Fluendo, the company behind LongoMatch, makes available the source code of specific parts of the application. This allows individuals or organizations to study or change this source code and make the proper contributions to the project, in order to improve our video analysis tool.

Legal Difference

CODECS AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

All multimedia contents can be found in a number of different formats depending on the type of file and the owner of the format or the intellectual property. The formats in which these contents are available are protected by law in many countries: Strongly in countries USA, GERMANY, UK, JAPAN among others. The technology developed to allow computers and other devices decipher and interpret the information within these formats often comes with a fee that gives the user the right to compress/decompress the information and transform it into images and sounds.

WHAT ARE CODECS?

Multimedia can be defined as any type of digital file which contains audio and video. Software like LongoMatch needs a player with codecs to enable it to playback these files. The codecs are pieces of software or components which translate the information into a language the device understands and can reproduce. This is a complex process involving the compression and decompression of the information contained in these files to adapt it to the computer or terminal that is being used to play them.
