Hi,

one wish out front to the Vorbis and AAC users : Please keep out of this thread, ok ??

This poll here is not to discuss about patent problems, technical feasibility, and whether you think there is value for such a unit or not. It is only ment to give voice to MPC users who would be interested in such a unit, and how much they would be willingly to pay for it, thats it !

Background information :

We are talking to several companies right now who are manufacturing DVD players with MPEG4 support about a matroska implementation into these units. At least with one of these companies our conversations have reached an interesting level.

Most of these units do support Ogg Vorbis already, thanks to the tremor library. I was talking to them lately about adding MPC SV7 support also and was pointing them to Frank's L-GPL libs in C, which would compile fine on their ĩC Linux development environments once some modifications had been made to it, like replacing all floats, etc.

About potential patent problems :

We have not been discussing this in detail yet with them, but these are the points to consider :

1. Is a decoder also subject to patent violation, or is it mainly the encoder ?
2. MPC is not known in the industry at all, so who cares ?
3. These guys pay MP2 licensing fees anyhow ( for VCD/SVCD/DVD support ), so maye all formats derived from it are covered in this licensing already ?

Again, please lets not start a flame war here about if these considerations are true or not, we are not in this state yet. This poll has only one purpose, to show to them if there was interest in such a unit. Period.
