Proposed VDD sessions

Road towards HWAccel 2

During this year we moved two steps towards version [2]:

  • 1.2 -> default context allocators
  • 1.3 -> bitstream-oriented hwaccel support

During this session we will discuss about how to provide an uniform structure to avoid even more boilerplate code and still allow full control to the people needing it.


How do we achieve VLC using Chromecast?

Media Library

Current state and conception of needed functionality for a cross-platform library to collect meta data, thumbnails and so on for use within media handling applications based on libvlc. Written in C++.

VLC Mobile Remotes

There is a major feature missing in VLC's mobile apps, which is currently provided through third party apps. Control VLC remotely running on a desktop. What needs to be done both on client and server-side to provide an advanced and seamless integration between the platforms?

VLC Subpicture Framework improvements for hwaccel rendering

As of today for picture type subpictures (DVB Subtitles, VBI pages, ...) a software scale step is forced into the pipeline. To make better use of hardware being able to render scaled overlays this shall be omitted. But it seems some significant changes in the VLC core are required to support this in a common way, which some brainstorming on would be required.

EBU-TT-D integration in VLC and/or ffmpeg




x264 meeting

Opus in MP4

We should sit down and design this mapping.

Binary Album Art extensions for Ogg

We've had a proposal to include binary (not base64-encoded) album art for Ogg in the context of Ogg Opus: <http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/codec/current/msg03061.html>. This session would determine if there is interest from players in supporting such an extension and working on the design.

libav/FFmpeg discussion


Seems like everybody is doing the same very flaky or very manual thing when testing video processing and player software. Can we do better?
