Jozef has written a DV to movie importer called 'oqtimport_dv'. The oqtavi2mov and oqtmash2mov utilities have been apropriately renamed and moved to the 'import' directory. The oqtextractvideo and oqtextractaudio utilies have been renamed to oqtexport_audio, oqtexport_ppm and oqtexport_compressed.

Not much has been done for a little while - Sorry !
But we are working toward getting a OpenQuicktime 2.0 pre-release soon...
Jozef has contributed a DV Video Codec which uses libdv. I have remove LAME from the OQT sources. To encode MPEG Audio you must now have the liblame shared library installed on your system.

We release in the same time the first version of OpenQuicktime and a few tools to play with. In details, a player and an encoder allow you to play and create Quicktime streams on any Unix box. Worth a try guys ;)

17 June 2001 - Yann
New web site, should be much more readable now ;)

The Gstreamer decoding plugin is now part of the Gstreamer CVS. This plugin and the encoding one should be fully integrated in the next release of Gstreamer or maybe the next one ;). An OpenQuicktime plugin HOWTO has been released ... If you want your favorite video codec to be supported by OpenQuicktime, either ask, or do it yourself ;)

01 May 2001 - Yann
An OpenQuicktime discussion forum has been setup at http://3ivx.com/forum. Its the one at the bottom

The CVS now contains some files that should compile, build and install a simple library, some tools and a (non very-well working) MP3 compression/decompression codec. The QuickTime core is based on the QT4Linux library without all the build-in codecs (they will be added as separate plug-ins). The MP3 codec is based on lame (for encoding) and mpg123 (for decoding). This is only the beginning, so please be patient. We hope to present you stable sources and pre-compilated binaries as soon as possible.
