    Hi,

    is there a tutorial (or a set of steps) on how to stream a dirac file?  I am particular interested in seeing the amount of bandwidth used, rather than the speed of rendering on the client side?  I appreciate the project is mainly about the codec, but streaming (since wavelet based) makes this codec unique.

    How will this be plugged into OGG container?

    Many thanks,

    Norman

      No there isn't a tutorial on that. Dirac can be wrapped in a transport format and streamed like any other codec. There is a spec for MPEG2 TS and a draft spec for muxing in Ogg: any tools that can stream these can stream Dirac with the appropriate plugins.

      I think the oggmux element in gstreamer (if you have the latest and greatest) will handle Dirac.

      For details on the mappings go to the Schro documentation page:

      If you want practical advice on streaming stuff you might start asking questions on #gstreamer on irc.

      cheers
