Realnetworks now offers Realplayer 10 but still no support(codec) for
MPEG/MPEG-2 video on Sparc.

Would it cost Sun to much $ to supply the Sun Sparc community with codecs?

I really feel it's a shame, The Sun Unix WS was once a very good
multimedia desktop :)

C'mon Sun, make this available on quickly, can't be
that much money envolved in this so you would score a few points very
cheaply I think!.

Why use realplayer? There are free codecs you can use with mplayer for


1. MPEG Editor for all formats of MPEG

Womble Media Technology has just introduced the Ver1.02 of the
MPEG software editor.

The following is a list of the major features.

            The Editor performs all common editing operations on MPEG
compressed data streams, including copy, cut, paste, and record. All
operations are accurate to the exact frames as the user specified.

            The Editor accepts all formats of MPEG bit streams,
including MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 video elementary streams, MPEG-1 System
streams including Video   CD format, and MPEG-2 Program and Transport

            The Editor allows all combinations of MPEG data streams of
different formats for all editing operations, e.g., you can insert a
segment of MPEG-2 video into a MPEG-1 video.

            The Editor creates new MPEG movies for all MPEG formats.

            The Editor introduces transitions over editing points with
user defined special effects. It has a simple programming interface that

allows the plug-in of user-defined special effect operators.

            The Editor incorporates still images into the MPEG video to
create title and text insertion.

            The Editor has other features, such as flexible playback
control for fast forward and fast reverse and dynamic selection of audio

stream in a multi-audio MPEG movie, that are rarely implemented in other

MPEG editors or MPEG players.

A time-limited demo binary has been provided for download at
<>  or at
< >.

      All versions require the Motif run-time libraries.

      Currently available binaries include

            SPARC on Solaris: < WMT-Editor-Solaris-SPARC >
            Intel-x86 on Solaris: < WMT-Editor-Solaris-x86 >
            Intel-x86 on Linux: < WMT-Editor-Linux-x86 >

    Happy Holidays !
