Bug#171463: ITP: veejay -- A tracking tool for arranging video samples

Severity: wishlist

  Version         : 0.3.2

  Description     : A tracking tool for arranging video samples

 VeeJay is a video tracking tool for Linux similar in concept to
 FastTracker (DOS) and ProTracker (Amiga).
 By defining a subset of your video files as one or more samples, you
 can arrange them on tracks in the pattern editor and edit the samples
 to achieve your final goal, the video.  You can then edit the samples
 in the so called Sample Editor, using basic editing tools such as cut,
 copy, paste, crop, and as well as applying a great number of cool
 visual effects.
 Currently only MJPEG is supported with a switch to the Gstreamer
 framework being considered for the distant future. VeeJay comes with
 both a console and GTK+ interface.


Preliminary maintainer notes:

This is going to be my largest undertaking for Debian ever. I'm going
to need all the help I can get so willing and enthusiastic
co-maintainers will be welcome.

Christian Marillat, if you're reading this, could you please tell me
if there are any legal reason as to why you haven't uploaded your
MJPEG packages to Debian. Patent/royalties problems? Same thing with

Another worry is that veejay is currently very aggressive on
processor-specific optimisations much like mplayer is right now. I'm
going to have a lot of fun trying to convert the i386 - i786 build
time optimisations into runtime detection code/optimisations or
convince upstream to do so. Veejay also supports Alpha and PowerPC
optimisations as well. Oh joy!
