Freshmeat page:


mod_video was created in order for me to be able to check on my apartment while on holiday using a camcorder hooked up to my Linux machine.

The module was written the night before I was leaving for my holiday, and being the first time I had used the video4linux API, I had to pick apart a few programs written by other people in order to figure out how to make things work. The documentation I was able to find on the net didn't really answer all my questions and at times it was just confusing.

I hadn't written anything that encodes JPG or PNG images before either, so I had to figure out how libpng and libjpeg work as well. Hopefully I didn't screw up too badly.

Hopefully some of you might be able to help develop this module furter so it can be useful to more people. Please see he section on contributing on the mod_video homepage for more information.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
