Played around some more last night with my image viewer for the VDR system. I got my code to compile, and it ran and worked on the first try. Amazing! I borrowed the actual MPEG1 encoding code from the Teletext plugin, which uses ffmpeg to perform the encoding. I was pretty sceptic of it ever working. It's not yet perfect, somehow the image has lost some height. The image is shown fullscreen, so it apparently uses all the available scanlines (576), but the lower parts of the image are cut off. Maybe a 100 lines or so are missing. I think the encoder gets fed wrong data somehow, or that my use of libjepg is fubar. More debugging ahead. :)
Ho, ho, this one is good. We need more stuff like this. Btw, today on the news I heard to following quote, probably uttered by someone like Colin Powell or some other warmonger:
There would be no war if Saddam Hussein resigned from power.
Well, one could say it like this too:
There would be no war if Bush resigned from power.
And the sad thing is that it's utterly true. Maybe going to war is something in the Bushian genes? Something that you have to do before you're a real man?
