The FFmpeg project has accomplished now work on the Indeo 5 video decoder as well as the audio decoders for AMR-NB, Sipro, MPEG-4 ALS and WMA Voice, complete support for Bink, CDG and IFF PBM/ILBM bitmaps, an RTSP muxer, Bluray (PGS) subtitle support, a protocol for file concatenation, and the ffprobe tool for extracting information from multimedia files. The announcement can be found on the Ffmpeg web-site...

    Wow. Did they reverse engineer indeo? BAd memories, also. Had some old stuff compressed as indeo way back (when the codec was a freeware for windows) and then suddenly it disappeared and iirc. even a decoder was only available for $. Quite nasty. Had to recompress a lot.
    Still nice to have something here.
    I hope they also thought of huffyuv and that successor of it lagarith. Lossloess codecs and both of them should be GPL/LGPL but somebody explained me that lags used some improper things in coding so there were some problems.
