Picustech Software - H.264 Main - High Profile Video Decoder
H.264, Mpeg4, H.263 video, audio and Cryptography embedded software for ARM9e, ARM11, Cortex-A8 , MIPS32 and PPC platforms
 ::  H.264 Main Profile & High Profile Decoder

H.264 was joint development of MPEG and VCEG which aimed at better compression than H.263 and MPEG-4 Part 2. H.264 is also known as ‘Advanced Video Coding (AVC)', ‘MPEG-4 Part 10' and ‘ITU-T Recommendation H.264'. H.264 Main and H.264 High profiles provide higher compression than H.264 Baseline profile. Besides, these profiles are directed for high resolution video.

Video files available on youtube are encoded in H.264 Main Profile or H.264 High Profile. Resolution greater than 720p are also typically encoded in Main Profile or High Profile to save bandwidth.
