Hi,

Has anyone tried getting programming specifications
for RealMagic MPEG decoding boards from Sigma Designs
(www.sigma-designs.com)?

[apologises to those of you on both lists- you probably got this twice. I just
realised i sent to the wrong list]


Having just gotten a DVD player for my system which came with a Sigma Hollywood
Plus (ugh - another reason to keep windows on my box), I would definitely have
an interest in seeing someone get it working in Linux.

I'd offer to do it myself, but I must admit my C is pretty subpar and rusty,
and I have no experience writing device drivers. However if someone would
undertake the project I'd be willing to offer what help i can.

Although I guess we would still need DVD Player software for linux once the
card was driven.
hmmm.
Anyone know if theres a project out there to write a Software based DVD Player?

DVD on linux has been starting to heat up a bit in the last few months.
Here are two projects currently underway (there are a few others as well):

http://livid.on.openprojects.net
http://linuxdvd.corepower.com

Right now there is some effort going into REing the CSS encryption
employed by the DVD standard. Next on the list is a fast software
MPEG-2 video decoder. There's a _lot_ of work yet to be done.

cheers,
aaron

Check out the LiVid project at http://livid.on.openprojects.net/. It
has had some problems lately with server related crashes, but seems
to be up and running again (except for the CVS, sigh). They have
a mailing list setup, too.

My appologies to the list.  This is to hopefully pre-empt anymore
messages to the list.

There are currently a few projects working on the DVD issues for linux.  I
suggest heading over to:

http://linuxdvd.corepower.com
and
http://livid.on.openprojects.net

These two sites have mailing lists associated with them (both archived on
the sites) and should provide you with the best information available for
issues surrounding DVD-Video playing on linux.  If anyone has any
questions about this feel free to mail me off-list and I'll try to help
however I can.  This isn't the place for a discussion on DVD hardware
support as there are a lot of issues (very few technical, mostly
legal and licensing) to get through before that becomes a
real possibility/issue.

And I am happy to announce that we show a working DVD hardware
solution for Linux on the Internationale Funkausstellung in Berlin
right now. See http://linuxtv.org/dvd.
