Updating the video converter

These filters allow motion interpolating frame rate conversion to be applied to a video, for example, to create a slow motion effect or change the frame rate while smoothly interpolating the video along the motion vectors.

There's still work to be done to call these filters 'finished', which is rather hard all things considered, but we are looking optimistically at their future. We are happy with the results of the program and immensely thankful for the opportunity of working with such an amazing set of students.

FFmpeg support for MPEG-4 ALS has been improved significantly by Umair's work.

We welcome him to keep maintaining his improvements and hope for great contributions to come.

This has been a long time coming but we wanted to give a proper closure to our participation in this run of the program and it takes time.

Sometimes it's just to get the final report for each project trimmed down, others, is finalizing whatever was still in progress when the program finished: final patches need to be merged, TODO lists stabilized, future plans agreed; you name it.

Current users and members of the community are invited to write a replacement program to fill the same niche that ffserver did using the new APIs and to contact us so we may point users to test and contribute to its development.

FFmpeg 3.1.1, a new point release from the 3.1 release branch, is now available!

FFmpeg 3.1 "Laplace", a new major release, is now available!

Some of the highlights: We strongly recommend users, distributors, and system integrators to upgrade unless they use current git master.

FFmpeg 3.1.2, a new point release from the 3.1 release branch, is now available! We recommend users, distributors, and system integrators, to upgrade unless they use current git master.
