Current Ideas


OggIndex has recently been introduced and adds a keyframe index to the Ogg Skeleton track. Support needs to be added to many existing open source applications, such as MPlayer, VLC, etc, so that they can take advantage of the keyframe index when seeking. For more info see OggIndex-Migration, Ogg_Index, and Indexing keyframes in Ogg videos for fast seeking. Mentor: Chris Pearce

Skeleton support

Get skeleton patches upstream so players:

  • stop choking on it.
  • start using the information it contains.
