divx ;-) project idea
I've been struggling with aviplay's dismal performance on my (admittedly old) system. (Frankly, it runs like a pig on quaaludes.)
But it gave me an idea. Why not create a DivX ;-) to MPEG-1 reencoder? My system's certainly beefy enough to handle MPEG-1. And especially since many... well... "adult" video clips are now being distributed as DivX ;-), and I'm tired of rebooting into Winblows to play them with any reasonable speed.
Besides, with avifile, not only could I handle DivX, but ASF too...
