Multimedia, AV Dirac is an advanced royalty-free video compression format designed for a wide range of uses, from delivering low-resolution web content to broadcasting HD and beyond, to near-lossless studio editing. The v1.0.0 version was released yesterday, and the new VLC version supports playback of .ts/.drc Dirac files.

1. Port the encoder/decoder under Gstreamer, FFmpeg, mencoder with the patches applied by default, and Video for Windows, Quicktime.

Dirac works with GStreamer ot of the box. At least on openSUSE. If your distro doesn't support it, bug your distributor or change the distro.
Dirac has also been ported to DirectShow and/or VfW. Dirac for QT: http://diracvideo.org/wiki/index.php/SchroQT
