dot.kde.org: KDE/aRts Video Roadmap Meeting Results

Jan 28, 2002, 18:22 (6 Talkback[s])
The aRts/KDE Video Roadmap Meeting ending up having a fairly large turnout, peaking at 26 participants on the IRC channel. There was so much turnout, in fact, that participants could not agree on a single strategy for video development in aRts and KDE. Some wished for a successor to mpeglib, something that would work within aRts but with the optimizations necessary for high framerate video. Others saw no need for aRts itself to be extended for video, and proposed using one of two external video systems. Fortunately, there were volunteers willing to code for each approach, so development will commence on multiple paths concurrently. In time, when the results are mature and ready for use by KDE, one will be chosen to be part of the KDE Multimedia standard. Read on to find out more about the teams and the code already produced.
