Open Video Conference  
Friday, 19 June 2009

Open Video Conference The Open Video Conference is happening now. My earlier post about Ogg Theora was intended to be somewhat objective about one corporate perspective regarding patents. In truth, I have been rather indifferent about Theora. However, with the adoption of Ogg Vorbis+Theora in HTML5 <video> implementations, the adoption by major sites, and the major improvements to the encoding library Thusnelda, I have become a fan. Also, I do have confidence that Fluendo and Red Hat legal consultations have vetted potential submarine patent issues.

Therefore, in this spirit, and in the spirit of the Open Video Conference, I am giving support for Ogg Theora a greater priority in MLT and therefore Kdenlive. In the releases thus far,  there was a major memory leak in the MLT avformat encoding plugin when encoding to Ogg Theora with Vorbis. This is now fixed, and the fix will become visible to most users in the Kdenlive 0.7.5 release. Next, I need to work on a new plugin to provide better support for Ogg source clips.
