Recent changes in ffmpeg

Maybe you wonder what is currently happening in ffmpeg development, no nothing special i just thought to summarize what i remember and maybe i or someone else could/should write some weekly whats new report from now on? :)

  • heaps of flac encoder optimizations by loren
  • a H.264 PAFF patch, so dont give up hope yet, maybe we soon will have that in svn
  • amv audio and video support
  • IPv6 related fixes by ronald
  • some minor h.264 optimizations by andreas
  • some experimental h.264 multithreading code which splits entropy coding into its own thread by andreas, though dont expect that in svn in the near future
  • a MMS patch ohh darn i just realize i forgot about that one :(
  • various improvements and bugfixes in the rt(s)p code by the luca brothers ;) (sorry couldnt resist)

  1. It would be extremely useful to have a weekly (or even monthly) update on what’s new in ffmpeg. Reading through the mailing lists is really too time consuming just to see what’s new. Thanks.

  2. Check your antispam blocklist for regexp errors, wordpress gives php errors when you submit new comments.

  3. i think ive fixed it … its what happens if the docs dont tell you the syntax for the regexp and one expects it to be normal unix grep syntax

  4. Hi Michael,

    what about the changes in snow during the last weeks?
    Are they not worth a comment?

  5. This type of report is a great idea. I have often thought about doing the same type of thing on my blog, but who is better qualified than you to write these? I hope these become a regular feature.
