Software News   Software News : Ogg Vorbis and Ogg Theora plugins released
   posted by softwarefailure on 7-Mar-2012 21:34:05 (1544 reads)
Two new plugins for Hollywood 5.0 have been released today: The Ogg Vorbis plugin allows you to play sound files in Ogg Vorbis encoding with Hollywood and the Ogg Theora plugin allows you to play video files encoded with the Ogg Theora codec with Hollywood. The Vorbis and Theora formats are especially useful because they are (most likely) not affected by software patents and so you (most likely) do not have to pay any licensing fees if you use them commercially.

You can download them from the official Hollywood portal. Thanks to Hollywood 5.0's cross-platform plugin system versions for AmigaOS3 (Classic), AmigaOS3 (FPU), AmigaOS4, MorphOS, WarpOS, AROS (Intel), Linux (PowerPC), Linux (Intel), Mac OS (PowerPC), Mac OS (Intel) and Windows are provided.

Nice feature to improve Hoolywood / enable video and music encoding inside presentations.

Both codecs are free and open alternatives to mp3 / DivX
and were made when authors of both started making a lot of money
on licencing. Sadly mp3pro never lived much even it offered double quality
at same bitrate (160k mp3pro sounds like 320k mp3)

Well it past the Big Buck Bunny Test™ !

However, like everything else on the Radeon HD Series playback is slow, of course thats not a failure of Hollywood's whatsoever. Slightly slower than mui-Mplayer.. usual story waiting for better drivers and overlay etc...

Edit: Meh can't type.

If you search a solution to convert your video to ogv (ogg video), maybe this online service comes handy:

online-convert.com

Tried it to convert an flv, and Hollywood successfully played the result, however the size grew by 50%.

To see this activity at AirsoftSoftwair I think "there is a bright future" for Hollywood! :)
