Hi

Don't think it's practical for Runrev to waste resources developing 
their own codec & tools.

Unfortunately I don't think there are many public video codec options 
that aren't encumbered by licensing issues, the main exceptions being 
WebM (http://www.webmproject.org) or Theora 
(http://www.theora.org/benefits).

Another option would be for Runrev to license something like the Blink 
video codec (http://www.radgametools.com/bnkmain.htm).

Also, LC needs to improve is it's audio support. I would be good to see 
LC natively support Ogg Opus (http://www.opus-codec.org).

*cough* Enhancement Bug 10460 *cough* :)

Would love the ability to simply pan sound!

To be honest, multimedia support has not really improved since the 
Metacard days :(

regards
alex
