[vlc-devel] Use of vlc as a "codec development framework" (bump)

I'm interesting in developing improvements to existing H264 codec, and 
also in creating new codecs.
It would seem VLC is a good candidate for this purpose, but I've not 
found any mention of it.

I've downloaded and compiled the latest from git. Everything seems fine, 
and I've found the existing
H264 module, which actually uses x264. I've compiled x264 and included 
it into a build of VLC.

I've found the documentation on programming and plugins in general, but 
not any specific CODEC example or specific
requirements that a CODEC must meet, or how to register a new CODEC.

I received no response to a similar earlier post. Perhaps someone could 
recommend a better place/method to ask these sorts of questions?

All help is appreciated
