By the way, thanks for sort of taking the reins on this. We need to make sure interest in this doesn't fizzle out!
|Anyway, regarding the above issue....why don't we start putting together a FAQ that we can update...or maybe not even as "formal" as a FAQ. Just SOMETHING where we start listing some common resources....along with corresponding URLS... For starters I'd like to see a document that we can keep updating and referring to. Something like this:
Plugins and modules for DVD Players
Sound Card Drivers
Recommended Soud Blaster Drivers
How to get AC-3 Passthrough working
....you get the idea.
What do you think?

There are several active development efforts surrounding modular systems - Xine and MPlayer for example, plus the various shells/wrappers. There are varying degrees of info available, but at least the beginnings of a survey would be useful. Figuring out how whatever it is 'we' are looking at here relates to those efforts, and how we can particpate in their mailing lists etc is likely to be a help in avoiding another 'reinvent the wheel' effort. For the most part, these efforts already share a bunch of stuff (eg libdecss, libdvdnav are shared by at least Xine and Ogle, vidix is used by MPlayer and ??Ogle etc) so we should really make sure we understand something about how they're structured before considering any concrete effort towards any implementation.

We should also get rid of the word 'Chat' from the forum title. I think it is confusing.

Ago, just joking about most of them.. but I do think putting project at the end is more fitting to what's happening here don't you think?
|So far most of the post have been about how to create a LINUX HTPC so for most its going to be a undertaking.|
