Been a while since I have posted here. I expect most of the reason is due to the fact that the summer is progressing slowly. I did take off last weekend and spent time with the parents. We spent a fair amount of time watching the nine Doctor Who episodes I brought with me.
In the mean time, I started hosting the repository for perian, a project to bring ffmpeg codecs to QuickTime. Assuming that cross-compiling issues with ffmpeg can be dealt with, then it should work out well.
