Cursory Fraps FPS1 Research
A user on one of the FFmpeg mailing lists brought to our attention a codec called FPS1. The company behind this codec is named Fraps. The application domain for this codec is apparently real-time screen capture of computer game animation, such as in popular first-person shooter games, hence the clever FOURCC FPS1.
