My Commitment

I'm committed to work up to 40 hours per week for 3 months on this project. I have no plans for vacation this summer :(


Based on the GSoC 2008 timeline

  • March 31
  • figure out what needs to be done
    • how to modify VLC to detect QTVRs
    • what needs to change in VLC to display QTVRs
    • figure out how to write codecs for VLC
      • User:dionoea mentioned that image handling modifications are required
  • get an understanding of the QTVR format (possible start: and the FreePV code)
  • see how much of the FreePV code can be used
  • make a list of QTVR functionality in the order of importance to organize the implementation steps
  • think about turning FreePV into a library that can be used in VLC
  • by now I should have a good idea of how things fit together
  • write a bare-minimum OpenGL QTVR viewer for VLC
  • July 14
  • do some testing
  • get feedback
  • keep extending the basic functionality until time runs out
