Some news from VIDEO/2 project on OS2.Ru:
- English version is ready
- Alpha version of MPEG2 player is published
No need to say that there are few programs for playing modern (and not very) formats of video data in OS/2 and eCS. There are some DOS mpeg players, OpenMpeg MMOS/2 plug-in by Netscape and that is about all. Meanwhile developing communications demand work with new formats - DVD, mpeg4, DivX and others.
The situation seemed to be hopeless, but after free Linux source of Libmpeg3 for mpeg stream decoders appeared there is hope to make the necessary software by own strength.
The project aims at uniting programmers. efforts to create a universal video player and modules (plug-ins) to support different video formats. We consider different ways of spreading this software . both as freeware and shareware.
