I hope I had you with the subject, but please read :)
So, most of the work on relicensing playback and streaming to LGPLv2.1+
is now done.
Yet, some part remains, and are listed under it.
If I mark with a "??" this means I need your input.
DShow, because of one missing author
RealRTSP, because lol @xine/mplayer authoring mess
v4l2, linux headers GPL
Bonjour, because jlj
Dolby, headphone, mono, because babal
dtstospdif.c, because jlj
dts.c, because jlj
x264, x265, because Loren refused
DBus, gestures, hotkeys, globalhotkeys, motion, netsync, oldrc,
I think some should be moved to LGPL, like motion, because of rotate
filter depends on it. Opinons??
mpc, wpl, zpl, because of authors missing
Real, see remark on xine
because we said no.
?? What should we do?
audioscrobbler, logger, stats: what should we do about those??
Playlist export and misc/rtsp could be considered as sout, but are
Not really useful. Other opionions??
We never discussed about that, but I think LGPL for sap and upnp and
podcast would be nice. Opinions??
Duplicate is missing because of a single commit that was rewritten by
Rémi afterwards. I don't know yet what I can legally do.
RTP is missing because of important code,
i420_rgb_mmx.h because sam is bad person :D (jokes asides, we have 2
Yadif, HQDN3D, because of upstream
Rotate because of motion (see above)
We need a new FFT for visual
VSXU, because main author was not contacted.
Thanks for listening...
