Wishes for 2004

I'd like to see NVidia / ATI doing MPEG-4 hardware accelerators based on current open-source MPEG-4 implementations like XVID or libavcodec. It should be able to work without licensing issues (not like Sigma) like it worked for OpenGL.

I'm sure there is a market for this, and a 3D+MPEG4 bundle would rock

A nice 2004 for all of you!

i'd like to see my sons readings(type 1 diabetes) stay as good as now once he starts school full days(prep 1). but thats just me.

i'd also like to see some of these rip-off companies die a slow painful death. hmm again that may just be me.

actually i would like the trends of this year to continue. that is great improvements in software for all mpeg standards, hardware prices in general becoming much more affordable etc.

I wish that people would leave subjects that have been treated in a codec comparison FAQ (and that have been brought up after each comparison for as long as I can remember) alone because I'm not gonna change my mind no matter how drunk I might get tonight. In fact, each time it's brought up again it reduces my motivation to ever spend another month of my life doing a comparison. It's the same as with the free pies message, constant nagging reduces a developer's willingness to go on and that applies to webmasters, too.

i wish that we will see nice mp4 support on hardware players
and a virtualdubmod version that can be used to mux and edit mp4 files

and i wish that all the great opensource projects that are around will continue their success story and that their development may never stop

A mature/usable H.264 codec. (and of course to win in the lottery. )

I hope a 1000-pound meteor, made of gold, crashes into my house when everyone is outside. The insurance company pays off the house and the state gets no rights to the minerals.

I hope Ogg Vorbis finds some success. It's a shame to see such a good quality and free codec be so ignored.

I hope for big drops in prices for DVD+/-drives and media, along with increased capacity.

I hope Doom9 doesn't let the critics discourage him. He knows he does excellent.

I hope FreeNet actually starts to work well.

I hope that the MPEG4 video codec makers figure out that Greene's Theorem applied to spacial domain transforms will allow a doubling of compression without any loss of quality.

I wish for a standalone hardware player which supports all features of MPEG-4 Advanced Simple Profile, can playback all files encoded in RealVideo/VP6/WMV, and supports the MKV/OGM/MP4 container formats.

I wish for a program which allows the user to easily create interactive menus in mp4 files. I also wish that a menu system be defined for the Matroska container.

I wish that Vorbis will have proper multi-channel support, and that it will be possible to put Vorbis audio into an AVI container.

I wish for a video codec which allows me to "backup" a 2.5 hour movie DVD on 1CD with minimal resizing and loss of quality.

I'd like to know what the XVID guys have to say about that

That's easy enough. When you're walking over to take them, don't stop to take them, just choose to pass them and keep on walking.

A good, cheap and easy to use DiVX/XviD hardware player that plays all the various formats correctly and can be purchased easily in the UK!!!

It's a nightmare trying to buy anything like that over here unless you are willing to pay through the nose or try you luck on Ebay. :P

I wish that movie & music publishers finally start to sell their products at reasonable prices, and in first place less, but better movies.

@Sirber
MPEG-4 acceleration on cards with Video-IN and support for interlaced modes would be great for those doing Live-cam or TV capture.

Do you want to compare the size of a DV stream vs MPEG-4 stream (even @q2)?

RV9 is great for anime, but MPEG-4 has the standalone/CD-recorder/view-on-other-PCs market. Of course that if we say DVD-recorder choice would go MPEG-2...

The important thing is that there is market for this stuff, as good as for 3D games IMHO.
