Announce: mpeg - an MPEG creator/deconstructor
I've just uploaded 'mpeg' to sunsite.unc.edu (18.104.22.168) in the directory
/pub/Linux/Incoming. The files are:
mpeg_util.tgz - an archive containing the source, manpage, MPEG specs, and
mpeg_util.lsm - an LSM entry for this utility
'mpeg' is a utility for encoding/decoding MPEG animation files. NOTE: this is
_not_ a player, for that you probably want mpeg_play (from UCB). This utility
will take raw frames (in YUV format (see ppmtoyuvsplit)), and create an MPEG
from them; or take an MPEG and spit out the individual frames it is composed
of. Either way expect to eat up a bunch of disk space.
This is the toy.. what we're waiting for now is Linux's Funnies Home Movies.
