Re: AmigaOS and web browsing in 2013

I have started to suspect that the sources might be stolen and can't be shared because of that and i wouldn't mind to be proved wrong on that.

Er, i beg your pardon? First this is very rude, and then, where and to whom could i have stolen mediaplayer sources for a web browser running on MorphOS, exactly? Stealing myself In a parallel universe where i would already have written it? Or in the future, maybe? Be serious please.

Just FYI there's no other implementation of a working HTML5 audio/video player on any amigaos-like, except for TimberWolf (if one can call that working, of course, because watching 1fps videos isn't very enjoyable IMO).

The media players implementations in the other main browsers are either already opensource:
- Firefox (unusable crap).
- Chrome (relies heavily on Chrome framework). Faster to rewrite your own player.
- gstreamer for webkit gtk (way too bloated). Ditto.

or closed:
- apple quicktime framework for webkit mac build
- windows media thing for webkit win build

So as you can see, there's really nothing to "steal"...
