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.

On Ubuntu you need to install the gstreamer package, that's not big deal. But compiling from source ffmpeg or mencoder to get the encoder, is.

Regarding Windows, you don't get what I am saying. The fact that they have a DirectShow codec means nothing, because they do NOT distribute an installer, they only give you the source code, which for me and 99.9% others is useless as I don't have any dev tools on Windows.

As for VfW, no, it's not developed as from what I see -- or at least it's not released.

>Dirac for QT:

No installer. And more importantly, these packages can not be found on their main "download" page. This is a major mistake. People are not into searching endlessly for that stuff. Additionally, there is no quicktime for windows lib.
