Should this bounty be closed? According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaCoder the code has been closed and now is adware. The Sourceforge page agrees.

Hi dryeo

It is already closed.
http://www.os2world.com/bounties

This bounty never got sponsor money so it got closed and archived some time ago.
I still need to do some bounty clean up, for that I need to contact the sponsors and negotiate to which project move the funds.
This is on my to do list, I'm in a "lack of time" this days.

Hi Martin,
which open source type of license was Mediacoder before developers closed its source. I don't know whole situation but if we have source code of open source version under valid license we can continue it maybe under different name.Caldera OpenDOS 7.01 was open source and later Caldera closed it source but developers continue to developing 7.01 version and that DOS is still ''alive''.
I know that is just technically and legal stuff but if we make decision to continue developing of it, must be watch on everything carefully.

Regards

Joop

Its all Windows, all other systems which can run it, does run it through a windows wrapper. What's worse;

    Decent x86 or x64 processor (SSE support as minimum)
    1GB or larger system memory
    Sufficent free hard disk space

This tells me that it is a static system and that all codecs are loaded into memory. I'm not sure if many OS/2 - eCS users can run it through Odin because of that 1Gb memory. Most users I know do, like me, run with 1Gb or less. The address in the link is wrong, but that's a minor problem. And if you have it all running, above this you have to add your data which needs this program. For OS/2 - eCS users this is a hefty system. And we already do have some nice programs which cover it all as far as I know, but may be I'm wrong here, I'm not that interested, I use a separate DVD player for my movies.
