Factor/GSoC/2010/Audio and video libraries
Factor already has various multimedia libraries:
Missing is a framework for video playback. Bindings to native media libraries such as GStreamer, Quicktime, and Windows Media should be written too. The end goal would be a high-level idiomatic Factor API for embedding audio and video in GUI applications.
Factor's C FFI (foreign function interface) is capable of calling out to any C libraries and providing C-callable callbacks. Any C library can be bound to and called from inside Factor. A large part of this project will be binding to existing media libraries and providing a consistent high-level interface for Factor.
Benefit to the student
The student learns how to bind C libraries to Factor using Factor's FFI, and also learns how C multimedia libraries work.
Benefit to the community
Factor will be suitable for multimedia applications if this project is completed.
