FFmpeg / Libav Summer Of Code

From MultimediaWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The FFmpeg project has been a participant in the Google Summer of Code program since 2006. In 2011, the Libav fork became part of the same Summer of Code effort.

Each accepted project is developed in its own sandbox, separate from the main FFmpeg / Libav codebase. Naturally, the end goal of each of the accepted projects ought to be to have that code in shape for acceptance into the production codebase. This page tracks the status of each project and how well each student did.
