Hi all,

I would like to propose the inclusion of libtheora beta 1 in gutsy.
The latest version provides more spec compliant decoder and
performance improvement in encoding/decoding. I have tested totem,
mplayer and ffmpeg2theora and haven't found any breakage so far.
Performance looks to be improved but that may be just my personal

I have test packages in my ppa which you can try. The ppa address is

1. I have created new packages today by syncing to debian package.
Unfortunately I can not upload the latest package due to version
problem i.e. 1.0.beta1.dfsg-0ubuntu1 (my old package) vs
libtheora_1.0~beta1-1ubuntu1 (created from the package in debian)
2. Due to above mentioned problem, I have all the files in a .tar.gz
hosted at It
contains source package as well as binary packages.

Passion - Some people climb mountains - others write Free software.
Don't ask why - the reason is the same.
