I don't know what Opie is, but I understand it is some kind of 
embedded system. I have first started the port on iPAQ familiar Linux 
a few months ago, but since then I have quit my company and I can no 
longer work on it, so that the ipkg isn't maintained any more. I hope 
it still works on familiar, has anyone tested it recently ?

The video decoder is already integer-based. A floating point 
implementation would be far too slow, and video IDCT doesn't need to 
be as accurate as audio... I even think we got rid of all floats in 
VLC, except in the native MPEG and ac3 decoder. What were you 
thinking of ?
