[Jeremy Garchow] "You mean on a theoretical Linux port?

Well, no.

Another reason that it's not going to happen anytime soon."


ffmpeg isn't an OS API, it is an open source reverse-engineered codec processing framework. It does include an API, libavcodec. ffmpeg is also available for OS X, by the way. I don't know if it is used by any NLE on any platform (unless you count Cinelerra).

Adobe in particular with Mercury Engine and it's reliance on NVIDIA is in an easier position to port (I imagine), since it is calling NVIDIA APIs and NVIDIA certainly supports Linux. It is the fact that Avid and Adobe do not rely on an OS vendor for playback and media processing that makes them good candidates for porting.

Best,
Andy
