GSoC 2009 is Afoot

FFmpeg has been accepted as a mentoring organization in the Google Summer of Code 2009 program. This is the program’s 5th year and FFmpeg’s 4th year in the program. Thanks as always to the big ‘G’.

To refresh, the GSoC pays students $4500 for a summer’s worth of work on qualified open source projects. FFmpeg is one of those projects. FFmpeg team members mentor various multimedia-related projects. Our current project proposals are listed in the wiki. And, as with the previous 2 years, we have some stringent requirements for our students– namely, a student must complete a small FFmpeg task, refining the solution based on critical feedback until it is part of the mainline codebase.

I personally haven’t committed to any mentor possibilities. I wonder if I should propose the Theora encoder again, which didn’t quite pan out last year? The thing is practically written already in my mind.
