MPEG1 and MPEG2 video decoder library
libmpeg2 is a library which can decode MPEG1 and MPEG2 video streams.
The main features in libmpeg2 are:
* Conformance - libmpeg2 is able to decode all mpeg streams that conform to
certain restrictions. For streams that follow these restrictions, libmpeg2
is probably 100% conformant to the mpeg standards - and there's a pretty
extensive test suite to check this.
* Speed - there has been huge efforts there, and libmpeg2 is probably the
fastest library around for what it does.
* Portability - most of the code is written in C, and when platform-specific
optimizations are used, there always is a generic C routine to fall back
on. This should be portable to all architectures - at least we have heard
reports from people running this code on x86, ppc, sparc, arm and sh4.
* Reuseability - libmpeg2 is not intended to include any project-specific
code, but it should still include enough features to be used by very
diverse projects.
This package contains the libmpeg2 shared libraries.

File libmpeg2-4_0.5.1-2_armel.deb80.05 KB04/08/2013 - 22:42

mpeg2dec (0.5.1-2) experimental; urgency=low

* New patch, 60_arm-private-symbols, set visibility of global symbols used
in ARM specific assembly file to internal; spotted my make check on armel;
thanks Riku Voipio for the report.
* New patch, 61_global-symbol-test, rewrite the public symbol check to
verify the shared libraries, to check for more things, and to avoid
duplication; fixes make check on ARM.
