> In particular the changes are :
> - I removed the admin directory and added an admin2_13 and admin2_5
> directory. Just symlink whichever one matches the version of autoconf you
> want to use. E.g. :
> for autoconf 2.13:
> ln -s admin2_13 admin
> for autoconf 2.5x:
> ln -s admin2_5 admin
> Then follow the usual steps to compile :
> make -f admin/Makefile.common
> ./configure		(don't forget --prefix=/usr if your using mandrake)
> make
> su root
> make install
> - Pressing Left and Right arrows moves the active monitor
> forwards/backwards one frame. Holding your finger on the button and you
> step through lots of frames ;-)
> - Pressing '[' and ']' sets the inpoints and outpoints on the monitor.
> Since these are still non-functional, there is little use of this, but it
> does hint that inpoints and outpoints will work in the non-to-distant
> future ;-)
> - pressing space makes the active monitor play or pause. If you press space
> to stop it and then press space again to play, it starts playing from where
> it started playing the first time (i.e., not where it paused). Whilst this
> may be the desired behaviour, it is an accident at the moment :-)
> Rolf, how do you think we should go about making this specific? There are a
> couple of possibilities :
> 1. I send a seek command before the play command. This works, but does not
> allow me to set a start/end point which will be useful soon.
> 2. We extend the play command so that there is a "starttime" and "endtime"
> value. If they are omitted from the command, then they are assumed to be
> the current seek position until the end of the file. This could work.
> 3. We add a new command which sets the constraints of starttime and endtime
> (decouple it from the play command). This could be useful, since I like the
> idea of adding a "loop" command in the future to loop a selected piece of
> video/sound. Of course, this could also be done as an option on the play
> command.
> What do you think? (well, I expect your actually still thinking about your
> phd, but if you have the time ;-))
