Pledge “sl-vlc-not-qt”

"I will donate $10 for VLC to be integrated into the Second Life client but only if 50 other Second Life Residents will do the same."

Deadline to sign up by: 31st August 2007
10 people signed up, 40 more were needed

More details
Pretty basic requirements of this compared to the Pixel Shader pledge

* Complete replacement of Quick Time in favour of Video Lan Client for streaming video playback (thus enabling all of VLC's support for video playback, including post-processing and de-interlacing options)
* Complete replacement of existing streaming audio playback code in favour of Video Lan Client (thus enabling a lot more streaming audio formats to be used)
* Additional binaries & source available that includes both the VLC and QT code (since there are some things that QT would do like SMIL that VLC couldn't)
* Support for external images, including MNG and GIF
* Integration of the VLC preferences dialogs into the SL client
* No comparable degradation in performance compared to using the Linden Lab QT-enabled client.
* Stable performance on Windows, Mac (PPC and Intenl), Linux

Additional, non-essential niceties:
* Using VLC's encoding features to replace the start/stop movie to disk code
** Using VLC's encoding features to stream video directly from the viewer (and thus back in-world hint hint)

This pledge is now closed, as its deadline has passed.
