SoC 2007 Project Mac OS X Framework
|This project is part of Google Summer of Code 2007.
More information in my original Proposal.
The simple test app that links to VLC.framework is able to play a given video just fine. Lots of work still needed in the playlist management area and in event handling though.
|Task Description||Due Date||Accomplished|
|My proposition has been accepted||N/A||Yes 12/04/2007|
|Work on setting up a git server to publish my work.||15/04/2007||Yes 13/04/2007|
|Implement the stub framework and the sample code that links to it.||15/04/2007||Yes 13/04/2007|
|First draft of the headers, plus partial implementation. Events, playlist, vout basic usage demo in the sample code.
We do have some draft which cover vout/playlist and shows how events will be relayed. The sample code is less advanced than expected but that's fine, given the wanted simplicity. We do have, as a side effected, implemented VLCPlaylistDataSource which is an NSOutlineView data source, and is an efficient way to display the playlist from guest app.
|Event structure in place in MediaControl.||no due date||Yes 29/04/2007|
|Auto evalutation, keeping in mind my original Proposal: Would current VLC be able to work with the object defined? Is there any simplification possible? What changes to libvlc are needed?.||29/04/2007||No (delayed)|
|Make delegate callback (events) get called on main thread.||6/05/2007||No|
All the code I did for the GSoC is publicly stored on VideoLan's Git Repository for GSoC on the pdherbemont_branch branch. To check it out:
$ git clone git://git.videolan.org/vlc-soc.git $ cd vlc-soc
Now get my branch in a new local osx_framework branch:
$ git checkout -b osx_framework remotes/origin/pdherbemont_branch
And to keep sync-ed, tell git to use remote pdherbemont_branch for osx_framework.
$ git config branch.osx_framework.merge refs/heads/pdherbemont_branch
And tell git the remote repository is named origin.
$ git config branch.osx_framework.remote origin
Now a simple:
$ git pull
Should be enough to get synced.
Building the framework and the test app
- Build VLC as usual. see How to build VLC on Mac OS X.
- Build the framework
$ cd extra/MacOSX/Framework $ make
- Now open extra/MacOSX/Framework/Examples/test/test.xcodeproject with Xcode
- hit command-R
