Hero Of The Samples Archive

September 24th, 2008 by Multimedia Mike

Check out compn’s project/goal, listed on his MultimediaWiki user page, which he affectionately refers to as the Sample Challenge:

  1. start with older files
  2. google the filename to see if it was posted to the mplayer/ffmpeg mailing list
  3. do a search at and to see if it was posted there
  4. if no text file exists, try playback using mplayer and ffplay
  5. move sample to appropriate place and create/modify bugreport or delete

For extra credit, write up a brief description in the MultimediaWiki with cursory findings.

Godspeed, compn.

    A perfect example why sometimes developers love users and you can help a project along without any (at least non-trivial) coding ;-)
