A small tutorial to be able to read .h264 files under linux and elsewhere.
Files with extension h264 are not everywhere visible like the .avi or mp4psimply because it's an ultra compressed video file extension. This kind of file is often highly encrypted and generated by surveillance cameras.
I had treated this kind of file in the meantime to check if they were not corrupt. Under linux, I installed many decoders but none managed to read them. It was by configuring VLC that reading was possible.
