What i'm building is a little bit of script infrastructure for adding
browser-inline media to existing imc sites, because a few imcs have
asked for it. it could, with changes to the encoder command line, and
the include file template, be easily tweaked to do theora+cortado, if
an individual imc felt strongly about it.
My personal experiences:
1) I haven't found any suggestions online for how to use ffmpeg2theora
to do conversions of arbitrary video files to theora. It's probably
easy enough, but someone should send me an mencoder recipe that will
deal with any proprietary crap that gets thrown at it and make a nice
ethical theora file out of it.
2) I read that cortado and gcj got along just fine, and I thought,
great, a totally free solution! So i apt-get installed the gcj
mozilla plugin on a more or less vanilla ubuntu install, and headed to
the cortado demo page, and it didn't work at all(gcj plugin
intitialized and firefox started chewing cpu, but no sound or video
I'd like to ideally get both running on a nice corpus of imc video,
and then do some comparisons of resulting file size/video quality/encoder cpu load/ease of playback for ordinary users...
