[Flac-dev] ACM codec

Hello everyone,

I was just browsing through some video capturing websites/forums and saw some
people complain that there was no lossless codec available to encode audio in
AVI files. I thought that FLAC would have one but it doesn't seem to be the case.

As it's a popular demand (now that hard drives are inexpensive, people can
record hours of video/audio without any loss and then compress to their
preferred format) I thought I could/should help on this one.

I'm currently working on the ACM version of LAME (MP3 encoder) and since the
code architecture is ready I think it would be quite easy/fast to do the same
job on FLAC.

I saw on the website that the ACM was a work in progress, but have seen no other
mention anywhere else. So if someone is working on that I'm ready to help,
otherwise I'm ready to start it.

Also I could provide the necessary .dsw and .dsp to compile FLAC in Visual
Studio (and which may use the Intel Compiler which is much more efficient on
that kind of subject).
