Vorbis playback is probably the most important thing
the original iPod lacks, to the open-source world at
least. The FAQ says Tremor now runs at 80% real time,
but it's always been there.

Please work on getting real-time playback. I'd guess
Xiph.org can help.

    I've been thinking about this, and I have to wonder if the uCLinux porters
    just didn't set the power management bits correctly. The cores in the iPod
    are software-clockable up to 133 MHz. Tremor (the integer Ogg decoder)
    requires only about a 90 Mhz ARM core. It should be more than fast
    enough.

    That having been said, has anyone implemented a segment loader for the
    second ARM core yet? That's probably the Right Way (tm) to handle
    decoding....

    i will second that. Vorbis would be a huge plus.
