Hello lists, Personally, I have not yet had an opportunity to test the different components in the Helix project. As such, most of what I know comes from Wikipedia.
In Wikipedia, it is stated that the Helix DNA Client supports Vorbis and Theora, but apparently, not Speex. Is it this true? How hard would it be to port an implementation of Speex to the Helix Client? Is anyone working in it? What about Ogg Skeleton, which is now a requirement for Theora videos served under the video/ogg media type? In Wikipedia, it is stated that the Helix DNA Server only supports streaming of MP3 and Real Media formats. Why?? The Ogg format was created mostly for streaming. That means that streaming Vorbis and Theora is (in theory) an easy process to implement for developers. Then there's also streaming through RTP. Vorbis, Speex, and Theora may be streamed through RTP. With the Helix software becoming part of the XO laptop (the OLPC project) it is highly important that free formats work properly in Helix, but that doesn't seem to be the case right now. -Ivo _______________________________________________ Devel mailing list Devel@lists.laptop.org http://lists.laptop.org/listinfo/devel
