Then the best solution - imo! - is that you send a patch that adds your
new filter that uses the existing asm optimizations if FFmpeg was
configured for GPL.
First send one patch only adding a new filter (with a new name) to
get some technical review
I'll send a patch with my new filter, to have some review.
One possible procedure for a change that can actually be committed
is that you send two patches:
One that removes the existing filter (but not the asm code) and one
that adds your new filter.
If everything goes well, I'll go on with this step too.
At this moment, two people agreed to change the license of the
tinterlace - Thomas Mundt and Stefano Sabatini.
From the git history I figured out that they wrote a quite big part of
tinterlace. Other parts are written mainly by the maintainers of ffmpeg
That being said, will it be possible to change the tinterlace to LGPL?
