General Development / Re: The MLV format

nah its fine here. it just might happen that i dont notice when you ask smth :)
in that case a PM or discord msg as reminder would help.

> And how would you interpret the LGPL in this case? Would you say it requires a 'relinking'/replacement mechanism for MLV structures? Or simply the inclusion of a license text+source?

its meant on a file-level. the mlv.h is allowed to be used in your even commercial product.
while the license itself is meant for linking C code into a non-GPL project and requires you to provide that code, in this case its just about the header.
i should have chosen MIT back then. but well...

as we are talking about just structures/data types (the mlv_hdr structures etc) that i want people to just use like some kind of documentation, don't make a science out of it.
not gonna sue anyone who used C STRUCTURES from the latest mlv sources. i doubt that it even would make any sense to go after that.

again. just use the C-structures/datatypes from the latest headers.
do NOT USE C CODE - literally code, that is not just a structure/datatype, but code.


why this decision?

as we want to encourage people to contribute to open source projects, keeping the code itself GPL prohibits shameles copycats who do not contribute back.
making the C structures usable for all, that is like some kind of documentation of the binary format. syntactically. a bit, at least.
this simplifies interoperability, but does not make copycat's lifes easier.

> Also do you know about:
> How did propreitary apps like Martin Hering's colourcast, MLVProducer, fastcinemaDNG deal with this? Did they provide any way to relink with/replace mlv.h?

i hardly remember what i did yesterday. so errrh no. :)

well, i assume everyone played fair. if not then be so fair and at least contribute a bit back to at least finance server expenses.
OT: just checked - its 1.1k€ that are missing right now since the last donation in 2019, but thats nothing that would financially stress me.

well, using MLV structures, like the C structures (and also the function prototypes if you wish) was always meant to be LGPL.
only the real code is GPLed to make people work on the same code.

i find this quite interesting:

not seen any trace of it yet publically.

Personally, *while I want to do those tasks*, I don't want to commit several months of time to then be told I did them in the wrong way and it's useless to ML.  Both sides win if requirements can be given in advance.

good point. in this case the best is to try to understand how you thing it should be, then explain your plan and ask if that is okay :)
from my experience: when an experienced developer (not a "what is C?"-newbie) made a plan of how he would solve things, this not different from what alex, me or any other would have done.
(you have no idea how often we have developed things and iterated 10x over it and finally thrown them away because it didn't work out or made no sense at all)

also experience: its always easy to say: "meh, i would have done it that way". but the answer to this is - "you haven't done it at all, so get cope with it :)"

well, ML is by its technical complexity nothing for one or two people.
it did and will not work that the same people digging into asm rev eng tasks (which are not just "a few minutes" of work, but rather weeks for one specific topic)
are the same ones who organize the project on a PR, doc, JIRA etc level :(

by the way - thanks to all contributors on the forums who try to keep the forum tidy :)

@coon:

PCB looks like JLCPCB - graphics like altium designer. (or kicad?)
Or do you have it on EasyEDA also?

yeah, i would still recommend keeping these as basic rules.
at least in most areas of europe this helps in being some innocent, non-evil entity.
as it was a bit misleading:
I still would stick to these rules as close as possible - especially non-commercial/non-profit.

using donations as financial support like for a1ex is absolutely okay for me and i fully support this.
this does *not* mean, ML is giving away money for everyone who asks for.
instead there was a lot of discussion before and everyone had no doubt that this is necessary and good.

Whereas, if we were to incorporate a regular LLC or something similar, that would have screamed "commercial intentions", so this was excluded from the start:

Well, I didn't mean to ask for tax advice on the forum; just sharing my current understanding.
...
Again, this is not tax advice or request for tax advice - just my own understanding :)

yeah for sure, but if somone can confirm the current understanding or give any feedback or even contra-indications, this would be welcome i assume.

it would be cool if people with a better understanding of alex' mentioned tax question/issues can look a bit closer and give feedback.

EXIF could fit into the scheme.
but as you said you have to make sure that stuff doesnt cause redundancy.

what should it specify, what you do not have in the main blocks?

*cough*
the world is so small.

couldn't resist cracking the thing open - without firmware replacement.
its a lot cheaper to use standard NXP SLIX-L tags and just put the proprietary audio files onto the SD card.

an alternative firmware is on its way, but i am not involved except some lowlevel reversings and providing information.

jeez.  i guess being a mod for a magic lantern forum turns people into dickheads.

I would suggest that you read those links again.  Maybe after a coffee or something.

Then trying playing with those features in camera.

Can I ignore MLV_VIDEO_CLASS_H264/MLV_VIDEO_CLASS_JPEG/MLV_VIDEO_CLASS_YUV? I think they have never been implemented is that right?

you should honor the flags, i.e. returning smth like LIBMLV_ERR_UNSUPPORTED_ENCODING or similar

@a1ex @g3gg0 can I call a new MLV reading/writing library "libMLV"?

absolutely.
thanks!

General Chat / Re: How many people would like to donate?
« on: October 12, 2019, 09:47:52 AM »
situation:
 a) have 14k€ donations for ML in BTC waiting for a special purpose
 b) a1ex is at a point to decide between "earn money in spare time to feed the family" or "use spare time working on ML"

my proposal:
 - sell BTC
 - pay a1ex' a year of rent, warm water, a 5D4 and food from it

what would be ML today if there would have been no a1ex back then?

I donated a tiny amount of bitcoin on 2018-02-16 :)

ah yes, see that 0.001 in the sheet :D

Also what happens with stuff sent to the ML bitcoin address?

just as a side note:

back then when we started accepting ML, the price per BTC was around $100.
thats when the most BTCs came from. the total donated amount is maybe $700. (just found my calc sheet, its 1.1k€ in donations)
today this amount is worth a whopping 14k$

we decided to keep the BTCs till we have a good reason to sell them.
