in case somebody wants to test Theora without compilation,
feel free to use konvalo.org's setup.
It includes mplayer with theora from svn 2004-09-21 with Wim Taymans'
mmx-patches from August 2004 applied
(there are mplayer and mplayer.theora-mmx, the latter with decoder
mmx-patches from VP3HoSwiYO)
and a theora-encoder script (a bit slower than ffmpeg2theora as it runs
several processes, but also a bit more universal)
The program names with a .reference suffix relate to the versions without
any mmx-related patches applied.
You will need a Coda client which is available at
and then either run "/coda/konvalo.org/start" to get a shell session
with these programs in the PATH
or "/coda/konvalo.org/start mplayer [args]" and so on.
The first start will be slow as it fetches a lot of libraries,
but only the first time.
This works on any Linux distribution with a 2.6.x kernel.
The Coda client can be easily wiped out of the system at any time,
by running "coda-client-setup --unsetup".
