we have added support for video handling with pluggable custom codec. We have provided primary support for FFmpeg codec which is replaceable and optional. FFmpeg is a well established multimedia software that handles all sorts of popular video formats. We have implemented it in DicomObjects to allow importing of supported video formats, embedding them into DICOM and exporting them using the appropriate transfer syntax and vice versa.
We comply with the rules stated in FFmpeg’s licensing terms and we suggest our users to read it through before using this open-source codec in our product. Also we would urge our users to be aware of the legal responsibilities of using this. In general though, by using a proper LGPL version (as we include) and by avoiding claiming ownership of it, the licensing of FFmpeg is no bar to commercial use.
We build an unmodified FFmpeg source code, with its output targeting Windows platform. The latest FFmpeg source code is available on their website
