Does this need any server-side changes or can
people just go ahead and
upload stuff encoded with the new codec? Will the embedded java player
break? If this is taken care of, I wouldn't mind trying it out.
The file format - the bitstream specification - hasn't changed. I
suggest you do a test and see.
(There are apparently some Theora decoders that choke on Thusnelda
output, because the developers of those decoders cut corners. Whoops.)
Current builds of cortado (the java player) from the Wikimedia SVN are fine.
The one on site is one such build.
If you have a non-spec player you won't fail to notice: Thusnelda will produce
neato multi-colored snow. If you find that behavior in any current versions of
any playing software, please report it to the Theora mailing list (or just here,
if you're lazy, and I'll forward it on) so someone can nag the relevant
developers to fix their software.
