Let the games begin

GSoC has just started this year (I've been accepted :D) and I'll use this space to provide information about my ongoing work. My project is to create and develop the quicktimemp4mux plugin for GStreamer.

For the past weeks, I've been studying specs and code on mpeg4. Right now, I'm starting to think on how to validate the resulting files my plugin will be able to generate. Some options that have already been suggested to me:
  • use qtdump to inspect the files
  • use a GStreamer pipeline to play the files
Other than that, I'm also wondering what could be my first goal at the plugin implementation, and I think that being able to create a mpeg4 file that contains only one audio track (possibly mp3) would be a nice start.

That's it, I hope that GSoC will be fun and, mostly, that I manage to finish a good quality plugin so that everybody gets happy :D
