Extend multimedia support for OS2 & eCS claimed by none

Task: Extend multimedia support for OS2 & eCS

Description: One goal is to extend the current multimedia system for playback of audio and video and offer a broader range of supported file formats to audio and video for players/games etc. that rely on mmos2.

Another goal is to help developers to create new applications that take advantage of these features, such as new and improved multimedia player(s) that integrate well with the system. Spur developers to port and write codecs for mmos2.

A side effect to the proposed bounty is that projects related to multimedia (e.g. Skype) may have an advantage and be easier to do if this bounty will be fully implemented.

Requrements to fulfil:

  • Use available knowledge from projects such as WarpVision, KMP and MPlayer etc. to improve mmos2 futher.
  • Remove requirement for additional envirmonments (e.g. ODIN)
  • Native and Non Native Codecs should behave and work the same regardless of file format involved.
  • Should blend in (integrate) with excisting solution to allow Apps/Games/Players etc. that use mmos2 to display more multimedia content.
  • Add support for streaming media
  • Add support for DVD Video (dvdcss.dll)
  • Necessary settings should be available in the Multimedia Setup object devided in appropriate categories as tabs - example of settings that may be included:
    • Audio: Output (DART, WAVE, etc.), Resampling rate
    • Video: Warp Overlay, DIVE, Acceleration, SNAP, Panorama
    • Display: Resolutions, Full screen, Aspect ratio
    • System: CPU Load, Postprocessing, Brightness, Contrast, Saturation, Hue
