Moving on

Tue, 03 Aug 2010 09:31:29 +0000

I have had a wonderful 4 1/2 years at Flumotion where I am proud to have been part of a huge success that I didn’t think was possible at the time I started. We have streamed live the Olympics, the FIFA World Cup, Cristiano Ronaldo’s inauguration at Real Madrid, Barack Obama’s inauguration as President of […]

Yesterday Guadec started and thanks to Marc-Andre we had streaming machines in the Hague ready to stream the talks live to all those poor souls like me who couldn’t make it this year. This year, we are streaming the conference talks in WebM and all seems to be going pretty well. We have had over […]

I bought an MSI Wind U130 a few weeks ago and was eagerly waiting for Meego 1.0. Today it got released and you can download it here. Just required writing the downloaded image onto a spare USB stick (I used the Nokia given 2GB microsd and reader from GCDS last year) and booting the netbook […]

More exciting live streaming from Flumotion with vp8 and webm

Mon, 24 May 2010 12:07:23 +0000

Fri, 21 May 2010 16:56:28 +0000

We did it! Today we managed to get Flumotion to stream live over http a test signal encoded in Vp8 and muxed in the WebM container.

N900 Youtube app

Mon, 09 Nov 2009 09:02:01 +0000

At the end of last week, I put packages for flv and ffmpeg gstreamer plugins into maemo extras-devel for fremantle (the version of Maemo that ships in the N900). With those packages, the N900 can play flv files from youtube and elsewhere but there was no app making use of it except the built in […]
