> Hi there
> This is an amazing project, congrats :)
> Ok, I work on mplayer/ffmpeg and I'd like to help you guys out
> fullfiting whatever multimedia needs you may have (software wise)
> . I had a little chat with some of you on #olpc today and a few ideas
> where thrown on the table, Im here asking for your comments and any
> other idea you may have, here is what i have so far then:
> 1.- The hability to play/display video is considered a must
> 2.- Ttreaming would be nice
> 3.- Real time encoding from camera is wished
> 	- would this be the only 'encoding' need?
> 4.- Optimization work for geode its a must
> 	- there is already some work on olpc's software repo
> 5.- The idea of streamlining mplayer was suggested, sounds doable.
> 6.- The idea of building something new on top of ffmpeg was suggested,
> 	sounds unpractical to me but, who knows ..
> Other not mentioned ideas
> 1.- What are the key points of system integration for the
> 	displaying/encoding app?
> 		- file manager ?
> 		- browser ?
> 2.- If cli sounds too complex for kids what do you think should be the
> 	main caracteristics of a multimedia app gui? do you have some
> 	usability guidelines i guess, does them apply to this subject?
> There is a lot to add here, hope to get the discussion started.
> Best regards
