Early Demo Released

Project OpenIPMP has released its first demo.

This demo is a very simple "Black Box" (i.e. binary only) demonstration of the OpenIPMP "proof of concept". A Win32 console executable that plays an MPEG-4 media file that has been secured (encrypted media samples with an MPEG-4 "Hooks" compliant IPI dataset).
