A new release of Schrödinger is available. Schrödinger (or “schro”
for short) is a cross-platform implementation of the Dirac video
compression specification as a C library. Many media frameworks
such as GStreamer and ffmpeg and applications such as VLC use schro
to encode and decode Dirac video.
The Dirac project maintains two encoder implementations: dirac-research, a research encoder, and Schrödinger, which is meant for user applications. Schrödinger outperforms dirac-research in most encoding situations, both in terms of encoding speed and visual quality.
Roadmap: Only a few people are working on schro, and only part time, so new features will happen only slowly.
