Great work, as always. I hope it gets its way into the Mac OS version as well, so I could play WMV9 movies without installing MS Media Player. smile.gif

Well, this time there is no hack (as in crack). The decoder is the VC1 reference software.

But still nice...

Well, he hasn't released any code to do it *yet*. So don't get too excited. As of now, it is only available to SMPTE members. I don't know how much money it costs to become a member but he would get in probably a lot of trouble if he just released the decoder sources now since they are private. However, I believe that once the standard becomes finalized the decoder will become public and then it should be ok to say make a patch for ffmpeg.

According to Doom9's forum he just bought a copy of the standard (or a working copy of it).

(allegedly...)

hehe... good stuff as always.

and i think releasing the source now would be a sure way for him to get incarcerated - as he'd have actually done something wrong this time. i believe when you purchase a standard, you must sign a NDA.

the decoder will probably become public if VC1 is accepted, but what about the encoder? could it be like HE-AAC? as far as i'm aware there's no opensource implementations of that, though that doesn't necessarily mean there can't be one.

There is usually no NDA regarding open standards, but only a copyright related to the text of the standard and the source code.
Example: the text of the ISO standard for mp3 is covered by a copyright, and the copyright owners are forbidding public distribution of the final version. In no way that means that you can not talk about what is inside the standard.

There is on OpenSource one available, but there is some publically available source code, like the 3GPP one.
