The Linux Video and DVD Project

   2001-11-01: Major victory in DVD/DeCSS Case in CA

LiViD is a nifty abbreviation for Linux Video and DVD. The web site is at www.linuxvideo.org and there is a CVS repository at cvs.linuxvideo.org.

The LiViD Project is a collection of video and dvd related sub-projects. The idea is to provide one central location for users to find information and support for video hardware and software. The other major advantage for organizing all the video related projects is the reduction of the amount of duplicated code, and a better collaboration on the design of interfaces.

Our goals are simple - provide a unified development and user resource center for video and dvd related work for Linux.

We are in need of web designers and editors. There is a lot of information about video out there, and we need to fill the site with content. Of course, we are always looking for skilled developers to work on current projects and start new ones. If you want to help or join our team subscribe and post a message to the development list.
