Plans for the Future

Let’s see what I have done in 2006:

  1. Fraps (FPS1) version 2/4 decoder
  2. Intel Music Coder decoder (some cleaning and lavc’ization)
  3. KMVC (video codec for FMV used in Worms games) decoder
  4. Musepack SV7 demuxer and decoder
  5. Smacker demuxer and decoder implementation (no, I haven’t RE’d it)
  6. VMWare capture codec (VMnc) decoder (implementation and some RE work)
  7. Wavpack decoder
  8. ZMBV (DosBox capture codec) decoder and encoder (encoder for palettized format only)
  9. Some image formats reading support (TGA, TIFF)
  10. 16-bit grayscale support for some image formats
  11. And finally – VC-1 decoder (with some WMV3 support)

And here are my plans for this year. Warning! This is not the final list and may be changed in process.

  • Make some lossless audio decoders (MPEG-4 ALS and Monkey’s Audio)
  • Implement missing VC-1 Simple/Main profile features (there are few of them which nobody uses but who knows)
  • Implement VC-1 Advanced profile interlaced mode (looks like it will be needed in future)
  • Help with some other projects – DCA implementation and maybe even finish RE for Xan v4 (looks like Mike forgot to do this)
  • And ultimate goal – take participation in GSoC 2007 and write JPEG-2000 decoder (in very distant future – even encoder)

    If you accept wishes still my wish for 2007 is a free AAC decoder 🙂

  2. Awesome! It’s great to lay out some goals and take stock of what was accomplished in the previous year (and the VC-1 decoder task was nothing to sneeze at). Yeah, I never quite finished that WC4 Xan codec. You’re welcome to pick up on that.

    Hi there,

    I was just wondering if there are any plans for an Indeo 5 decoder (from you or any other FFMPEG contributer).

    Thank you for all the great work,
    Frank Russo

    Oded Shimon will eventually finish it.

    I know there is some work going on Indeo5, maybe it will be done this year.
