The MPEG-4 Part 2/H.263 SDK Packages are software components for video stream encoding into MPEG-4 (ISO/IEC 14496-2) and H.263 (ITU-T Recommendation H.263) streams. This format is predominantly used for environments where low bit rates are required, such as mobile streaming. The encoder supports the Simple Profile (SP) as well as the Advanced Simple Profile (ASP). Additionally, you can create H.263 streams that are required by various mobile phones. The corresponding video decoder is a software-only playback solution for content generated by the MainConcept MPEG-4 Part 2 Encoder or 3rd party encoders.
