We are GStreamer pioneers

Founded in late 2004 in Barcelona, Fluendo was created with the objective of providing a legal solution for multimedia playback by means of an Open and cross-platform framework called GStreamer.

For more than 10 years, Fluendo has always been at the forefront building legal multimedia products always developed under this versatile framework and actively contributing to the GStreamer community growth.

As a result of an huge collaborative task, GStreamer has established itself as the de-facto standard multimedia framework for GNU/Linux and UNIX systems. GStreamer is a development framework to create applications like media players, video editors, streaming media broadcasters, etc. as well as other software components like codecs, filters, muxers or demuxers. GStreamer is free and open source and is released under the LGPL V2 license, allowing developers to also use it in commercial or closed applications.

From a technical standpoint, the GStreamer framework was designed to make it easy to write applications that handle audio and video, giving the developer the ability to process any kind of flow. From a user's point of view, GStreamer's dramatically enhances the multimedia experience: audio and video files run smoother while memory consumption is minimized.

Since 2005, year when Fluendo signs a formal agreement with the most important patent holders in the market -MPEGLA, Microsoft, VIA Licensing, Technicolor & Dolby-, Fluendo has been the only multimedia company worldwide to provide the a complete set of codecs for audio and video and delivered to the client with its corresponding patent licenses for distribution: Fluendo Codec Pack, a custom package for enterprise purposes that can be easily embedded by OEMs to into their platforms/devices (Thin Clients, PC, laptops, set-top-boxes…) in order to enhance their multimedia contect playback.
