Phoronix: FFmpeg 0.6 Released With H.264, VP8 Love
The release of FFmpeg 0.5 last March was significant as it was the first official release in quite a while for this popular and widely used free software media program. Fifteen months later, FFmpeg 0.6 has been released with plenty of changes including support for Google's VP8 codec / WebM and improvements for HTML5/H.264 video playback...
well, at least once ffmpeg team has a good reason to bump version number - a new, soon-to-be major, codec support.
i don't want to start bikeshed discussion, but version number bump was imho a bit too high.
Does it now support ASF/WMV in (microsoft _nonstandard_) RTSP streams served from windows servers? (as far as I know it wasn't supported in Linux by any decoder/player yet).
Well the changelog states:

I don't know if this pertains to your issue.
Well it might be that issue. Thanks, I'll try to test it.

Wasn't there a Phoronix article some time ago that AACS would be supported by ffmpeg, soon. It's such a schame that you still can't play Blu-ray discs on Linux.
But i want the bike shed to be green!!!~

Oops? Well here comes the download squad ^^, Won't be earning a single dime from me. Oh and the last time I bought a movie on DVD? Less than a month ago.
See you later >:-)
They figured you would just steal the movies anyway...
And they were right. I mean, if you won't pay for software, why would you pay for media? The studios would rather just shut out the entire Linux platform and concentrate their efforts elsewhere.
