LinuxPR: Loki Releases Open-Source Motion JPEG Library for Linux

Sep 08, 1999, 19:35 (2 Talkback[s])

"Loki Entertainment Software, the leader in bringing top-selling PC games to the Linux operating system, announces their third Open-Source project, the SDL Motion JPEG Library (SMJPEG)."

"SMJPEG creates and displays full motion video using an open, non-proprietary format created by Loki. It is based on a modified version of the Independent JPEG Group's library for JPEG image manipulation and freely available source code for ADPCM audio compression. Among its many benefits, SMJPEG allows for arbitrary video sizes and frame-rates, user-tuneable compression levels, and facilities for frame-skipping and time synchronization."

"Loki developed SMJPEG in the course of porting Railroad Tycoon II: Gold EditionTM by PopTop Software and Gathering of Developers. While Loki is contractually bound to protect the publisher's original game code, Loki shares any improvements to the underlying Linux software code with the Open Source community."
