Subversion repository available

So, people who like to get the screaming bleeding-edge version, who wants to get the new features before they are released and don't mind a little bugs too much, or simply testers, here is the command you need :

svn checkout

This will give you the latest sources, right at the state i left them after last coding.

Note for people not familiar with subversion :
- At least the first time, you'll need to launch './' instead of './configure', and you'll need autoconf, automake and libtoolize.
- Subversion information at : read more

1st release !

Sive-pre-alpha-1 was releases yesterday. The implementation of the H.264 profile is buggy so videos are not always playable on the iPod. Just a preview release therefore.
The next release, which will correct this bug and therefore will be usable, is coming soon :)

SIVE space opened / MP4Box / 1st release soo

Thanks to all Sourceforge staff ! I now have a CVS server, news, bug tracking, screenshots, download platform, blah blah, for free !
Thaaaanks :)

About SIVE itself : development is still on going, but I've been experiencing bugs playing SIVE produced videos on the iPod. I'm thinking about replacing mp4creator with MP4Box.

Also, the first pre-alpha release is coming :).
