I'm actually unaware of what you are referring to. Please educate me.
What I'm aware of, though, is that Sun's medialib on SPARC seems to
perform better than what's currently in FFmpeg (for obvious reasons).
So one of the things I'm trying to do is to see whether the code
that is really needed for FFmpeg (medialib is huge, we only need
like 2% of it) could be OSed under a reasonable license that would
allow direct inclusion into FFmpeg sources.

Should I stop it?


P.S. Well, not that there's any guarantee that my efforts are
bound to be successful even if I continue, but still.
