  1. Hi all,
    Finally I have managed to make a pre-release for version 1.2.3.0

    What is it ?
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    PyMedia is a Python module for avi, mp3, ogg, wma, divx and other media
    formats processing.
    It is crossplatform and can work on Windows, Linux and cygwin.
    PyMedia is based upon the following libraries :
    libavcodec, libavformat, libdvdcss, libdvdread

    It has simple and yet powerful interface. Check out the tutorial section:
    http://pymedia.org/tut/

    Features
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    1. Audio decoding/encoding for the following types:
    - mp2, mp3, ac3, ogg, wma, aac
    2. Video decoding/encoding for the following types:
    - mpeg1,2 ( dvd, vcd, svcd ), mpeg4, xvid, asf
    3. Video/Audio muxing for mpeg files only
    4. Direct access to sound device( Input/Output ). Input is synchronous in
    Linux.
    5. Sound manipulation classes such as Resampler and SpectrAnalyzer

    7. Direct access to dvd tracks for playing DVD movies( all types )
    8. Ability to convert video frames from YUV<->BMP formats
    9. Simple interface and portability( Windows/Linux/cygwin )

    Downoad
    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    (1.2.3.0-pre2).
    You may download Windows binaries as well.

    How to use
    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    License
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    At the moment the whole module is GPL because of libdvdread and libdvdcss.
