two days ago a patch was committed to ffmpeg official source code database that
adds support for our Magic Lantern Video (MLV)
format produced by mlv_rec.how it came to this?
the FFMPEG team applied
for Google Summer of Code (GSoC) for raw bayer support in their libraries.
i talked to peter and suggested him to look at our video format as some open source raw video format that is free of any royalities.
so they could continue to improve their raw support with already existing footage in this simple video file format.
peter then started to implement the format reader within only a few days
the nightly build of ffmpeg
already can play .mlv videos using ffplay, just the coloring isnt finished yet.
the commit is here
a big thank you
to Peter Ross
and Michael Niedermayer
for making this happen
