I'm pleased to announce the alpha 3 release of the theora reference implementation. http://theora.org/files/libtheora-1.0alpha3.tar.bz2 http://theora.org/files/libtheora-1.0alpha3.tar.gz http://theora.org/files/libtheora-1.0alpha3.zipThe main differences over alpha 2: The encoded image has been flipped to match the sense used in VP3, with the origin at the lower left. This allows lossless transcoding of VP3 content. The decoder data tables included in the bitstream header are more complete and have more scope for future encoder improvements. Some experimental tools are available in the win32 directory, including a transcoder for avi vp3 files.We hope there were be no more incompatible bitstream changes, but as with previous alpha releases we make no promises that the format will not change again. Only with the beta 1 release will we promise to support encoded content, so use this only for content you can re-encode later.Experimental playback support is now available (separately) for Helix/Realplayer 10, Xine and mplayer; you might look at those if you want a more full-featured player. Be sure to use an alpha-3 compatible version.Thanks to everyone who contributed to make this release possible.SHA-1 checksums:ae01e03439bce495dc0d124c19de29c7fd4b5ad5 libtheora-1.0alpha3.tar.bz22a403162c45560f498b1d88ab4f45674e4f8dcbf libtheora-1.0alpha3.tar.gzd0406ecade7ac6b426a73fdb12cb8ac3a8462633 libtheora-1.0alpha3.zipMD5 checksums:96bd0ab761fffde527ac4febf168e9b7 libtheora-1.0alpha3.tar.bz2eab566a0c7fdc21da1ce503edfa43bb4 libtheora-1.0alpha3.tar.gz49dc6c19ca59ae6dae085a0d5857389f libtheora-1.0alpha3.zipThe release is tagged as theora1_0_alpha_3 in cvs; some data files from cvs HEAD were omitted for reasons of space.Cheers, -r
I hope Xiph puts some or a lot of thought into how Theora works in windows. Directshow encoders and decoders would be best.
Anyway, at the very least I suppose it will soon be able to use it in the real's helix producers which should work quite nicely.
QuoteAnyway, at the very least I suppose it will soon be able to use it in the real's helix producers which should work quite nicely.really? why that?
Someone, please, give me binaries...
I'll try compiling theora for win32.
I assume there are no theora-enabled mplayer builds for win32...

Of course everything works perfectly on linux - the only user friendly environment on earth
