Bug#157944: ITP: libmpeg2 -- free library for decoding mpeg-2 and mpeg-1 video streams

Package: wnpp
Version: N/A; reported 2002-08-23
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : libmpeg2
  Version         : 0.2.1
  Upstream Author : Aaron Holtzman <aholtzma@ess.engr.uvic.ca> and others
* URL             : http://libmpeg2.sourceforge.net/
* License         : GPL
  Description     : free library for decoding mpeg-2 and mpeg-1 video streams

 The main goals in libmpeg2 development are:

 * Conformance - libmpeg2 is able to decode all mpeg streams that conform to
 certain restrictions. For streams that follow these restrictions, libmpeg2 is
 probably 100% conformant to the mpeg standards - and there's a pretty
 extensive test suite to check this.

 * Speed - there has been huge efforts there, and libmpeg2 is probably the
 fastest library around for what it does.

 * Portability - most of the code is written in C, and when platform-specific
 optimizations are used, there always is a generic C routine to fall back on.
 This should be portable to all architectures - at least we have heard reports
 from people running this code on x86, ppc, sparc, arm and sh4.

 * Reuseability - libmpeg2 is not intended to include any project-specific
 code, but it should still include enough features to be used by very diverse
