QuickTime IMA ADPCM Encoder

Is this related to http://lists.mplayerhq.hu/pipermail/ffmpeg-devel/2008-February/042475.html ?

I assume so. I am watching that patch too. --Multimedia Mike 14:32, 25 February 2008 (EST)

WMV3 Encoder

And this to This patch?

Realistic time frame

A problem that has come up in past years is the number of projects that go uncompleted. I think the Matroska muxer was the only project that was actually completed by the end of the summer. If the student is willing to continue working on a project past the end of summer then that's great, but we should try to estimate a realistic time frame. In looking over the current project list, I think the following could reasonably be completed in three months time:

  • ALAC encoder
  • Speex decoder
  • MXF muxer

These are all very clearly defined tasks, as opposed to some things involving psychoacoustics and perceptual coding, which can be very open-ended. -Mkhodor 06:00, 26 February 2008 (EST)

I'm not sure about the ALAC task. Do we have enough complete information documented for a student to reasonably complete the task? --Multimedia Mike 11:59, 26 February 2008 (EST)
