aacs discussion

for anyone interested in why i removed it as a proposal: http://ffmpeg.org/pipermail/ffmpeg-devel-irc/2012-February/000495.html

[01:08] <j-b> kierank: who spoke about aacs?
[01:08] <Compn> aacs is on the libav gsoc page
[01:08] <j-b> why?
[01:08] <j-b> http://git.videolan.org/?p=libaacs.git;a=shortlog
[01:08] <j-b> it works perfectly fine
[01:09] <j-b> Compn: connect libaacs to ffmpeg? this is stupid. libbluray does that.
[01:10] <Compn> j-b : well that aacs task was written a year or two ago ... just copied to new one
[01:10] <j-b> this is totally stoopid
[01:10] <Compn> feel free to delete it off gsoc page
[01:11] <Compn> there isnt a mentor for it anyhow
[01:11] <j-b> integration ffmpeg of libbluray is a 10hour task, at most
[01:11] <j-b> and it gives you libaacs for free
[01:11] <Compn> theres already a patch...
[01:11] <j-b> it does not give bd+
[01:11] <Compn> i just didnt know how it all worked when i suggested it years ago
[01:11] <j-b> which is _important_
[01:11] <kierank> libbluray in ffmpeg does make some sense
[01:12] <Compn> ok removed from wiki
[01:12] <Compn> everyone happy? :)
[01:12] <Compn> i dont want to duplicate libaacs
[01:13] <j-b> now, I would suggest libbdplus SoC

generic build system

it would be a good idea to find a project that wants to switch to this build system. this would give a clearer goal, 'make generic build system and port project XXX to use it'. i think it would be a bad idea to make a big generic build system only to find that its missing some feature that everyone needs. there are autotool alternatives, maybe good for finding obstacles and required features: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/600274/alternatives-to-autoconf-and-autotools --Compn 22:23, 4 March 2012 (EST)
