Re: [OpenDivX] Linux and such

We could always just setup a "unofficial" OpenDivx for Linux web site.  I
would love to have an alternative place where I could get up to date
libraries for encore and decore, and it would also be nice to have simple
example code.

If anyone else is interested, I will setup a web space and maybe a mailing
list for this.

the files to put in the build dir, and a little script or instructions to
move the few files into the position they would have to be in.  Would that
be a good temporary solution for the core?
