right, the quality would not rise that much, and CPU would be stressed much more... maybe not that good for ScummVM...

but hey, now that Smacker is supported in ffmpeg maybe this can be supported directly in some time...

hmm, i already wanted to suggest a switch to libtheora. i think this really would make sense. not dropping libmpeg2, but making it an alternative. i could help integrating libtheora if needed...

Is it CDi I am thinking of??? its been a while :) I thought it would use MPEG video for compression as it doubled as a movie player as well or have I lost the plot ;) correct. the CDi was effectively just a (custom format) VCD player with menu capabilities. think of DVD with MPEG1 ;) /EDIT: ok, not...

I don't understand everyone's obsession with MD5'ing everything. A simple size check should be more than sufficient here. I'll add this now. checksums are one of the few magic things which are left to coding. at least as long as you don't really understand what _exactly_ the MD5 procedure is doing :)

hmm. this is somewhat, ahm, badly defined. it could mean MS Word would be illegal, since i could open a manuscript in DOC format written by someone else. and hence it would be the otrher persons data.... this is silly. and the "tracking" thing probably means: "let you software phone home or get bust...

Maybe this site will explain it a bit better: http://kickme.to/sdt9000 thanks. this really clearified the issue. OTOH, there are these big standalone players/recorders (looking similar to a standalone tape deck). of course they can record and playback from/to analog ports, but would there be a way ...
