OpenCodecs release 0.85.17777

OpenCodecs is a set of DirectShow filters for playing Ogg Vorbis, Speex,
Theora, FLAC, and WebM files in Windows Media Player and other players.

This release updates VP8, Theora, and, Vorbis codecs. ActiveX video
player gains "controls" attribute support. Various bugfixes.

Note that due to upgrade to Visual Studio 2008 and by the presence of a
Vorbis show stopper bug this release does not include a Windows Mobile

I would like to thank Hwasoo Lee, Olivier Flock for their contributions,
and Henry Jakob for reporting the Windows XP
show stopper bug.


Source code:

Windows 32/64-bit installer:
