hmm. maybe I don't understand yet how it all works... When I install the official gmerlin repo, it overwrites libgavl in /usr/lib with a version that is older than that which came from installing the pd-readanysf package from the puredyne ppa's. I also noticed that whoever did the "official" package for ubuntu made it without gmerlin_encode. This basically makes the package useless. This all seems odd. I would think there would be 4 packages: libgavl -> provides base library for audio video frames libgmerlin_avdec - provides libs for decoding av gmerlin_encode -> provides plugins to gmerlin for encoding gmerlin -> provides a framework for building gui apps, also includes many handy applications such as gmerlin_transcoder > Do you need a more up-to-date version of the gmerlin package? And what It would be nice (maybe even crucial) to have all the gmerlin packages in sync -> packaged by the same method, at the same time. > for do you need it, just out of curiosity? the gmerlin package has some of the nicest (and easiest) transcoding software I have yet used. I use it a lot. But, the official package is broken as far as I can see, since it doesn't include any of the encode plugins. It also has a very handy ogg/vorbis/theora streaming app that seems to be missing from the official package. -august. _______________________________________________ Pdfirstname.lastname@example.org mailing list UNSUBSCRIBE and account-management -> http://lists.puredata.info/listinfo/pd-list
