This is our ideas page for Google Summer of Code 2009 projects with and Annodex. The two projects participate jointly this year under Xiph's name.

Students please use the template at Summer of Code Applications when applying for a GSoC position.

Mentors please visit Summer of Code Mentoring and help us prepare our application as a mentoring organization.

General Ideas

  • SRT to HTML overlay library in javascript.
  • Proof of concept liboggplay-based media patch for Google's Chrome browser.
  • mod_duration apache module to generate X-Content-Duration headers for Ogg files.

Detailed Project Descriptions

These ideas were suggested by various members of the developer community as projects that would be beneficial and which we feel we can mentor. Students should feel free to select one of these, develop a variation, or propose their own ideas. Here, ideally.

Proof of Concept liboggplay (html5 video) support in Chrome Browser

This project would focus on creating a patch for basic liboggplay support into chrome. This project would only need to be a proof of concept with the end result being some frames decoded in the browser. Buffering, and full html5 video feature set support would not need to be addressed.
