AV codecs for Solaris

One of the big complaints about using OpenSolaris and Solaris is multi media support. The lack of codecs to allow you to play "common" if not "open" formats is irritatings.

I've been using the Fluendo mp3 codecs for a while as they have a compelling price point, being free. Fluendo also have a bundle of other codecs that they supply for OpenSolaris containing codecs for a number of other popular formats. I decided the €28 was would be worth it and have now installed the codecs on my home server. I now have gstreamer support for:

: pearson FSS 1 $; gst-inspect | grep -i flue
fluasf:  flurtspwms: Fluendo WMS RTSP Extension
fluasf:  fluasfcmdparse: Fluendo ASF Command Parser
fluasf:  fluasfdemux: Fluendo ASF Demuxer
fluwmvdec:  fluwmvdec: Fluendo WMV Decoder
fluaacdec:  fluaacdec: Fluendo AAC Decoder
flumms:  flummssrc: Fluendo MMS source
fludivx3dec:  fludivx3dec: Fluendo DivX 3.11 Decoder
flulpcm:  flulpcmdec: Fluendo LPCM decoder
fluwma:  fluwmsdec: Fluendo WMS Decoder
fluwma:  fluwmadec: Fluendo WMA Decoder (STD + PRO + LSL + WMS)
fluh264dec:  fluh264dec: Fluendo H264 Decoder
flumpeg4vdec:  flumpeg4vdec: Fluendo MPEG-4 ASP Video Decoder
flumpeg2vdec:  flumpeg2vdec: Fluendo MPEG-2 Video Decoder
flump3dec:  flump3dec: Fluendo MP3 Decoder (C build)
: pearson FSS 2 $; 

Alas on the Sun Rays the video performance is still less than great but on the console it is faultless and I am seeing the Totem is not quite as useless as I had previously thought.

It would be really cool if you could get OpenSolaris codecs via IPS repository.

The next thing I want is to be able to edit video.
