MPlayer Now Supports Most HD-DVD/Blu-Ray Codecs

,----[ Quote ]
| This news is coming a few days late 
| (MPlayer's web-site lacks any RSS or 
| syndication support), but the latest 
| MPlayer code in their SVN trunk now 
| supports most HD-DVD and Blu-ray codecs. 
| Earlier this year we talked about possible 
| Blu-ray support for FFmpeg and developers 
| becoming more interested after we 
| interviewed the FFmpeg developers and there 
| ended up being an outpouring of support by 
| our readers offering up Blu-ray drives and 
| other forms of help. 


FFmpeg Gains VDPAU MPEG-4 ASP Acceleration

,----[ Quote ]
| What we were in the process of writing 
| about when we discovered MPlayer's support 
| for most Blu-ray and HD-DVD codecs was that 
| there is now support for MPEG-4 ASP 
| decoding with VDPAU (NVIDIA's Video Decode 
| and Presentation API for Unix) in the 
| mainline FFmpeg tree.



Possible Formation of FFmpeg Foundation NGO

| Recently posted on the FFmpeg Developers
| mailing list was a request for comment from
| Ronald Bultje regarding the intention to form
| an FFmpeg Foundation (although not using that
| name).


FFmpeg made easy

| So you've got those expensive headphones you always wanted. You put them on,
| set your playlist on shuffle, lean back on the recliner, and hit play. And
| Robbie Williams sounds just as bad as he did on the older cheapo headphones.
| What gives? Unless you aren't a Robbie fan, the music doesn't sound great
| because it isn't encoded to.


An Interview With The Developers Of FFmpeg

,----[ Quote ]
| Earlier this week the FFmpeg project reached version 0.5, which was quite
| significant considering no new FFmpeg release was made available in years.
| This release contained a plethora of new encoders and decoders, support for
| VDPAU, a variety of bug-fixes, and many other improvements. What is next for
| FFmpeg? When will we see proper Blu-ray support? Will there be a 1.0 release
| in the foreseeable future? To answer these questions plus others, I spoke
| with three of the main FFmpeg developers about this very popular -- and
| important -- open-source multimedia project.


Mplayer, FFmpeg Gain VA-API Support

,----[ Quote ]
| If you happen to have hardware with the Intel Poulsbo and Intel's
| closed-source driver, patches for adding VA-API support to MPlayer and FFmpeg
| have just been published. The Ubuntu Mobile team and Intel's Moblin project
| have been working to add VA-API support within the Helix media player stack,
| but now it's here for the widely popular MPlayer.
