Well, I’m U.S. citizen, so visa stuff isn’t an issue, but I’ve never been
impressed with JVM/JRE enough to take time to learn it.
Just FYI, for DASH, you will probably want somebody proficient in C who is
somewhat familiar with the ffmpeg code base who can also develop patches for
ffmpeg. The ffmpeg DASH implementation, while always being improved, is still
not very well polished yet. Various samples provided by members of the Dash
Industry Forum don’t play back correctly with ffmpeg, and vice versa.
Especially with the live profile.
