Thoggen

Been a while since I posted, but I’ve been fairly busy and rather unmotivated to write anything. Hopefully this month I will get a little better about updating this blog, but we’ll have to wait and see.

I’ve been playing around with Thoggen the last few days. Over all it’s a pretty sweet application, though the encoding is slow as hell. Figure I’ll work on getting the package and it’s dependencies in shape, and then submit it to the Livna repository. Unfortunately, due to patent issues (libdvdread, etc.), it can’t go into Fedora Extras repository. Also, since it depends on gstreamer-plugins 0.8.10, it won’t be available until FC5 comes out.

Watched Lost In La Mancha last night. Pretty entertaining documentary.

Update: Looks like this might be able to go into FC4, since Thomas Vander Stichele has already submitted the necessary gstreamer-plugins to Livna. Here’s the Bugzilla request.
