I am looking at using theora for integration into sample code for the
demonstration of a single chip micro controller. The sample code
already contains an RTOS, TCP/IP protocol stack and a webserver. The
micro controller has a video input interface with an external digital
video decoder (AKM AK8851 fitted to the evaluation board) and a USB
host controller which can support web cameras. The object would be to
demonstrate live video through the web server. As I understand it
playback should be possible on a PC so long as the QuickTime
components or DirectShow filters are installed.
Is theora suitable for this application?
Has any one had experience of porting the theora codec to an embedded system?
The micro controller is big endian and a quick search of the source
code for _LIT and _BIG returns no hits. Is the endian of the target
CPU handled with other defines or has it just been written for little
