Putting Theora into practice

The Starship AGS's chief engineer, Mr Scott (or scotch as most know him) has aligned the dilithium crystals and made an Ogg Theora video player plugin for AGS. That's functionality that wintermute has and has the great advantage of not relying on any codecs being pre-installed on the player's system. Check it out!

  1. Cool! Flic format is really really showing its age but the codec compatibility question forced me to use valuable AGS sprite space to make a lot of my cutscenes. The ability to pre-render the movies and not have to worry about whether the user can play them or not (unless you bundled the codec with the game)will save a lot of hassle and a lot of coding time as well.

    Well done!
