Dev call 9/30/2009 minutes

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.


Minutes for this morning's call:


  • Has gone through all of the tests on Windows XP for 2.5.3 rc1.

  • Working on testing Miro on OSX.

  • 2.5.3 rc1 is looking good so far.


  • Worked on 12212 and should have it fixed tomorrow.

  • Worked on subtitle ui--it's coming along nicely.

  • It's hard to determine which subtitle thing is which language which makes it hard to allow users to choose a default subtitle language.

  • Worked on external .srt subtitle handling.

  • Perian doesn't support external .srt for movie containers it doesn't open by itself (mp4, quicktime, ogg, ...). Luc's running into problems with that and is trying to talk to the Perian developers.

  • VLC handles everything created so far just fine. Luc's tossing around ditching Quicktime/Perian for VLC. (ed note: I think I summarized that right--but I could be completely mistaken about what Luc is tossing around.)

  • Will continue doing subtitle work in a subtitle branch that'll eventually get pushed to g.p.o.


  • Hopped on the call to say hi.


  • Worked on 2.5.3 bugs, put out a rc1 release.

  • Working on redoing release process, scripts and infrastructure to make releases easier and cleaner with git.


  • Working on Miro Community--almost done with version 1.0.

  • Working on unit tests.


We achieved the $1000 goal in large part to a couple of key donations. Thank you!
