I started work with Perian back in June of 2006 when Augie asked me, “say, any interest in updating the the ffmpeg based quicktime component?”. I admit, I was hesitant at first, but after a bit, I helped him set up a repository. At this point, I was hooked. I helped work on the following parts:
- Made a script which could build ffmpeg as a universal library
- Changed the data path for ffusion to expedite decoding
- Worked out big and little endian issues
- Increased the speed of ffmpeg’s decoding of H.264
