OneThirty8 is working on a video player based on the VCD spec called VC\DC.

VC\DC can play vcd and mpeg , DC Movie Player can play formats such as : afs , avi ,mov etc with good quality - video : up to 1000 kb/s ,audio : up to 56 kb/s according my tests .But the latest version has no audio/video sinc.

Yeah, but if you ask him maybe he'll implement them. Assuming by AVI you mean DivX, he could easily use DCDivx's source.

That's what I had planned on if I decide to implement support for DivX. Other codecs and other container formats really don't interest me for VC/DC. For another player, maybe, if I find the time, but VC/DC was supposed to just be a VCD and MPEG player so I don't want to make the code a huge mess just for the sake of supporting more stuff. The code is pretty messy already from what I remember (I haven't even had the time to look at it since starting my new job in April) and trying to support too much will only make it worse. Also, the way VC/DC was designed doesn't really make implementing .mov or .avi or other codecs very easy. Had I used ffmeg or xine as my backend rather than separate MPEG video and audio decoding libraries, implementing all of that would be fairly trivial but I didn't go that route when I started.

Once I get more settled into a routine with my new job and everything I should have a few hours here and there to work on this stuff. There's plenty that I still wanted to do on the DC, so I might work on something like DCMoviePlayer at some point.
