I blogged about it before, but let’s remind all students that you can work on FFmpeg this summer, and earn money ($5000) while doing so. The deadline is this Friday, the 9th.
Google’s Summer-of-Code is a yearly recurring event where students spend their summer coding for free software projects, and make a buck. In the past few years, some of our much-valued contributions created during the Summer-of-Code have included a VC-1/WMV9, RealVideo3/4, WMAPro and AMR-NB decoder and an MPEG-4/AAC encoder/decoder (and many, many more!). This year, we have had several high-quality proposals from students wanting to work on network-related protocols or audio codecs, but are still looking for applications related to:
- better seeking
- filter support (libavfilter)
- video codecs (e.g. WVP2 or VC-1 interlaced)
- many more
If you’re interested in learning more about the innermost workings of multimedia, you have good C-skills and are willing to learn a lot more about these, then send an email to the ffmpeg-soc mailinglist, or come to IRC (#ffmpeg-devel on Freenode) to find out more. Please apply before Friday!
