Should not be too hard to implement.
stub support for daala
work in progress patch
nearly there - as in, it no longer crashes all the time
latest daala patch: encoding seems to work, decoding does not
patch to the daala example player to log every ogg/daala call
shows the result of encoding an xterm session using daala
stream recorded on the server showing an xterm
With v6, we can encode using daala, and to make it easier to debug we can also record the output stream to a file (which should be generalized) as well as sending it to the client using:
XPRA_DAALA_SAVE_STREAM=basefilename XPRA_DAALA_DEBUG=1 xpra start --start-child=xterm :10
So it looks like daala may have some serious encoding problems!
Unfortunately, the decoding side (client) does not work... despite doing exactly the same calls, in exactly the same order as the example daala client. This can be verified by applying the daala-example-player.diff patch to the player and running the daala xpra test with the ogg stream we have recorded:
;XPRA_DAALA_DEBUG=1 LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib64 PYTHONPATH=. ./tests/xpra/codecs/test_daala.py xterm-daala.ogg
(for the record, everything also builds fine on OSX after installing check.sf.net)
output from the daala xpra test
output from the daala example player
I've asked on the mailing list and got no reply, although the daala source tree does see some updates, if the mailing list is any sign... this project does not care and neither should we.
