LinuxTAG 2009

The VideoLAN team went to LinuxTAG 2009 in Berlin on 24th till 27th of June. This year we had our own boot right across the hall of the ffmpeg booth. Not that you could see them from our booth, because a big 'educational' booth was in between us.

On our boot we showed a demo with VLC integrated in a panelpc which was operated using the firefox browser. Another demo showed a DV Camcorder being transcoded and streamed to another PC (with vlc as client of course). A third demo show VLC connected to an Axis 207 Network camera. And a forth demo showed a collection of blender movies with and without filters (puzzle, gradient, etc) being applied.

During the conference days we talked to the FSFE, ffmpeg, CentOS, TI (beagleboard) and Qt people. It were all friendly contacts. The evenings were mostly filled with pizza's, beer and geek talk.
