i want my client to be able to choose which codec he wants to record video (using umenu and sprintf). Last year i had a problem that h264 is not available but it was listed in the helpwindow. To avoid including unsupported codecs I would like to know what codecs are supported.
The project I am doing, I will send to somebody who does not have MaxMSP and lives far away. The only way to change the video settings will thus be with umenus. He needs to experiment what codec is going to give the best results. I do not have sufficient knowledge to say which codec to use, so I want him to decide (what seems good to me, may seem bad to him). So I ned to have a list that I can put in the umenu with the available codecs.
