It's a good news !

I'm not the author of this code but yes it's an ImageStream implementation
which use FFmpeg, and it seems it was not too hard to make it work for
movies, we just had more problems with the sound. FFmpeg is really a
powerfull toolkit for reading movies, but also for creating or converting

Thanks ! :)

"What are the specs of the hardware, OS, OSG version
etc that you deployed on these touch screen systems?  What API's did
you use to get the touch screen data?"

For the two applications we have Intel Core 2 Quad processors with 2 GeForce
8900GT cards (in SLI on the single screen setup and with one screen per card
on the dual screen setup - the one with the Earth -). Behind that it's a
WinXP with the SVN version (from yesterday) of OSG. The screens are 46" and
57" from NEC (all full HD), with a touch capacitive film on them.

And we don't use any specific API for the events, it's just like a mouse.
The next step will be to handle multi-touch events, but here it will need
some special API's. :)
