GSoC '09 Start up

Finally got some time to post here about me getting accepted into GSoC this year! Yay!!!

The project
Basically, develop ASFMux and RTPASFPay (or something more readable than this). ASFMux will be featureful, supporting stream prioritization, stream mutual exclusion and timed scritpting. David Schleef will be my mentor this year.

I'll be hosting my code in my personal freedesktop git repositories. Initially I thought on using a branch out of -plugins-bad, but then I thought that it would be better to have a single plugin tree, because people can build and install without destroying their -plugins-bad install.

Current stage
So far I got a basic muxer stub and started working on sending the header bytes. The code at git has a trunk base folder, but that's because I started working with svn and them migrated to git, I'll remove that in my next push.

I just wanted to make the project start public. I'll be updating the status of it here regularly.

Now I need to get some sleep, it's getting late here. Good night!
