Yup, Debian is definitely one of the most strict GNU/Linux distros about freedom (if not the most strict one). The only decoding libs I think are now worth considering are libtheora on top of libogg and ffmpeg. Thus, considering that Debian distributes ffmpeg in the "main" (purely free stuff) repository, with a codec of our choice. I now think that the only issues we need to look at aren't legal ones but rather the technical differences and difficulties between both. And honestly I think that most (if not all) of us here are a lot more competent at making technical decisions than legal ones. >> Yes, but it isn't handled by the WRF resource system at all, in fact the >> resource system is completely circumvented for FMVs. > > Hm, but integrating with the wrf system seems too much work for 2.1 (and > wasn't the plan to replace the wrfs with lua later, anyway?). Lua, or our own custom WRF files, they're both just a different language. Integrating with Warzone's resource system (which currently utilizes WRF files) won't be difficult due to the WRF files though. I'm not even sure if it will be very difficult, I'd need to that to get an idea about it's difficulty. Anyway, it's still about two weeks worth of school stuff in which I cannot spend much time on Warzone. Thus any such investigation from my end will have to wait for those two weeks. -- Giel
