    Hi all,

    I want to propose creating a sticky or forum subfolder for current and new software being developed for PPC.
    To give some examples:

    1. wicknix's mini apps and browser and pale moon
    2. Kameron's TenFourFox
    3. My own ( if I can get the "owners" approvals ) - Q/K-ju for PPC, YouView, Simple Mp3 Player (Mine), Chicken of the VNC ( SunSourceTom I'd like to help if it's ok with you, LeopardRebirh and PPCAppStore )
    4. SunSourceTom's Leopard Rebirth and PPCAppStore ( Sticky the current thread of Leopard Rebirth )
    5. rebuild of openssl
    6. Leopard Webkit
    7. Theming CorePlayer ( I'm trying, it's image based, I think we can give it a more leopard look )

    @SunSourceTom
    Create a SnowLeopardRebirth using one of the theme apps available ( ex. Magnifique )

    Best regards,
    voidRunner

    Why did I start to work when everything became Object-Oriented and left my C knowledge to rot .
    Thanks upfront for looking in all of these.

    On what qemu version would you build Q/K-Ju for PPC ?
    What version of Chicken of the VNC ? Youview ?

    If you feel up to it , Cyberduck is also on the demand list but my Java knowledge is nil , see here #28

    100% behind theming Coreplayer - or rather, lack of theme if possible. I'd prefer it as minimal as possible like Mplayer - control via shortcuts.

    Hi Lastic,

    Answering in order:

    1. Q/K-ju is based on the last source released.
    I'm using qemu versions pre-built for PPC. I can use any available because I'm taking
    an slightly different path which is to use VNC to display ( lowers cpu drastically ). I'm
    merging Chicken inside Q.
    Also building it for Intel

    2. As for chicken i'm building version 2.0b4 ( I'm also building it for Intel 32/64bit )

    3. YouView is based on the last source available also 0.6.1 ( I'm also building this for Intel ).
    In Leopard it requires re-linking with webkit for now.

    4. I can take a look at Cyberduck. I'll need to find the source code.

    Best regards,
    voidRunner

    Does YouView use Quicktime for playback? Would be great if Mplayer could be utilised and/or toggles for 3gp/mp4.

    Hi Dronecatcher,

    Yes, it's using quicktime for playback and it's playing mp4 without any problems.
    I found quicktime 7.7 for leopard, are you using this version?
    In snow leopard it's using quicktime x, i'm trying to find if I can force a specific version to
    see if using snow leopard's quicktime 7 is faster/lighter on resources.

    Best regards,
    voidRunner
