Multimedia Project for OS/2

The basic idea is to create one big package, combining all of the Multimedia functionality needed for OS/2. The general approach will be to develop an Open Source replacement for OS/2 Multimedia (MMOS2) with added components to support extra file formats. The rules of the "OS/2 Multimedia Infrastructure Project" will be followed to develop new components.

The second aspect of this idea will be to include every Open Source Multimedia project in one single install (so as to make one big Multi-media super-charger and replacement for MMOS2). The projects that may be included are MMIO-MP3, Ogg Vorbis, Timidity, CWAudio classes and Media folder, the MMPak by Thetaband, WarpCD, LBMixer, WarpGOGO and more.

It will be good to try to harmonise the licensing of these products under the GNU GPL and encourage the developers of CODECs and other components to join forces toward achieving a single goal.
