Google is sponsoring their third annual Summer of Code for the summer of 2007. This entails sponsoring students to work on assorted open source projects as well as

FFmpeg was a Summer of Code participant in the summer of 2006 (here is the corresponding Wiki page) and hopes to be accepted again this year.

Mike Melanson (mike -at- multimedia.cx) is the administrator and main point of contact for matters relating to the FFmpeg Summer of Code.

Project Proposals

Overview

Qualifications for a good Summer of Code proposal:

  • discrete, well-defined, modular
  • comprised of a series of measurable sub-goals
  • based on open specs that are available free of charge
  • based on complete specs

An example of a good proposal is the implementation of a decoder or demuxer for an as yet unsupported multimedia format, or an encoder or muxer for a format that can already be demuxed/decoded by FFmpeg.

An example of a less desirable proposal is one that's not as measurable, such as refactoring APIs. Bad proposals tend to be ones that would require touching a lot of core code.

To re-iterate:

  • Localized/isolated code projects = good
  • Global code refactoring = bad
