What about new containers like NSV and OGV?

Postby JuanC » Wed Jun 06, 2007 3:52 pm

Hi ,

I would like to see NSV and OGV containers in Perian.

NSV info :

OGV , the new extension for Theora video.

OGG container extension will split basicly into OGA for audio and OGV for video :

Well first of all NSV is not a container, it is a streaming link. That said, while ffmpeg supports the file, I don't know enough about how quicktime handles streaming to even know if this can work. Although I can tell you that .asx files are handled poorly in flip4mac which is a commercial product... so it doesn't look hopeful.

Also in my experience with trying them on VLC, most of the codecs used are not the regular spec ones and don't necessarily work.

As for OGG, I can't really give you a good idea. What I can say is that a Theora decoder is still in development for ffmpeg, and OGG containers are not supported by ffmpeg. That said, it's own libs MIGHT allow it to be added on easily. As a matter of fact an OGG codec has been around for a while (or as you refer to it oga). Although it might be PPC only. Oh and in terms of Theora, I would say polishing off WM9 will happen before there is any real progress in it on the ffmpeg side.
