omdat ik me afvroeg hoe het eigenlijk nog gaat met die projecten heb ik
het vlug maar eens opgezocht (mss vr velen/sommigen oud nieuws, maar
bon). Een klein, maar toch ":-)" overzicht:
:-) XviD 1.0.0: (16/05/04)
The development team is happy to announce the immediate availability
of XviD 1.0.0 release. Though this version number is purely
symbolic, it's still an important step, and the "xvid-team" hopes
you'll enjoy all the efforts that have been put in this 1.0 numbered
version. Thanks to all users who: reported bugs, sent patches and
helped us improve XviD up to an 1.0 quality level.
:-) Icecast2 & Theora => royalty-free video streaming: (25/02/04)
Through two independent implementations, one by Karl Heyes and
another by Daniel Holth, pre-encoded Ogg Theora files can now be
streamed with Icecast2.
This is exciting news as, for the first time, royalty-free video
streaming is possible. We may be just months away from opening the
market to small web-based television stations which could not afford
streaming licenses or per-viewer royalties previously imposed on
:-) Helix & Ogg Vorbis/Ogg Theora: (21/01/04)
First, RealNetworks has awarded the Xiph.Org foundation one of its
Helix Grants to support continued development of Ogg, second, the
Real Helix player now supports Vorbis and [alpha-release] Theora,
and third, Real has announced its intention to support Ogg across
client, server and native production tools.
:-) Helix & Jabber => Distributed Multimedia (21/01/04)
Over the last five years, the Jabber community has defined a set of
XML streaming protocols, which are used for instant messaging and a
wide range of other real-time applications. RealNetworks is forging
a new relationship with this community with the extension of this
grant. "Existing Jabber technologies will be significantly enhanced
through integration with Helix, and Helix in turn will be enhanced
by the real-time communications infrastructure that the Jabber
protocols provide. This win-win synergy will help the Jabber and
Helix communities become even more important in the Internet
ecosystem over the next 12 months," said Ulrich Staudinger,
Principal Investigator of this Grant Proposal.
