Topics On Multimedia Technology and Reverse Engineering


GSoC 2008 Students

April 21st, 2008 by Multimedia Mike

Google has announced which students have earned slots for the 2008 Summer of Code. As with previous years, I don’t know whether to congratulate or console the constituents of this collection:

  • Alexander Strange: Generic frame-level multithreading support for FFmpeg
  • Bartlomiej Wolowiec: Nellymoser Encoder
  • Jai Menon: ALAC Encoder
  • Keiji Costantini: LGPL reimplementation of GPL sws_scale parts
  • Kostya: AAC-LC Encoder
  • Ramiro Polla: MLP/TrueHD encoder
  • Sascha Sommer: WMA Pro Decoder
  • Sisir Koppaka: VP3/Theora Encoder
  • Zhentan Feng: MXF Muxer

Feast your eyes on those ambitious projects. It’s going to be quite a summer.

A hearty “thanks” and “good luck to you too” go out to the registered FFmpeg mentoring crew, including Andreas Setterlind, Andreas Öman, Aurélien Jacobs, Baptiste Coudurier, Benjamin Larsson, Jean-Baptiste Kempf, Justin Ruggles, Kristian Jerpetjoen, Luca Barbato, Reimar Döffinger, and Robert Swain (2006 GSoC Alumnus). And as always, there’s the unofficial über-mentor, Michael Niedermayer, who also has the final say in whether a project’s code is ready for inclusion into the tree.
