Open source support for WMV og WMA under Linux



Real har tilsyneladende lavet en aftale med MS der gør at de nu vil
supportere WMV på Linux i deres Helix platform. Med andre ord, der vil
snart være open source support for WMV. Det vil dog ikke inkludere
support for CRAP (af nogle også kaldet DRM).

Der er selvfølgeligt nogle ubesvarede spørgsmål, mest vigtigt er nok
hvilken licens koden vil blive gjort tilgængelig under.

Man kan også stille spørgsmål ved om det er et fornuftigt træk. Jeg
tror dog der er mange der vil blive glade for at kunne afspille WM*
filer under Linux uden at skulle bruge W32codecs, der nok ikke
umiddelbart kan anses for at være lovlige. Men ville det ikke være
bedre at bruge tiden på at hjælpe med udviklingen af feks. Ogg Theora?
Det er dog nok ikke i Reals interesse da de jo har deres eget
proprietære format...

Citat: === Klip ===
Currently, Linux users can play Windows Media Video (WMV) and Windows
Media Audio (WMA) content if they install closed-source modules, said
Jeff Duchmann, general manager of client and digital rights management
technologies at RealNetworks. That will change as the result of a
licensing deal RealNetworks has signed with Microsoft and its
settlement of an antitrust suit against the software giant. It will
release open-source code to play the files as part of the Helix
Community project it launched to bring RealNetworks technology to Linux.

"The work we're doing will all go into the Helix client," Duchmann said
in an interview here. However, the software won't support digital
rights management available with Windows, he added.
