An anonymous reader writes “Matthew Gregan is working on bringing David Schleef’s DSP accelerated port of Theora to Firefox Mobile. He writes on his blog: ‘The C64x+ DSP is often found in systems built upon TI’s OMAP3 SoC, such as the Palm Pre, Motorola Droid, and Nokia N900. Last year, Mozilla funded a port, named Leonora, of Xiph’s Theora video codec to the TI C64x+ DSP. David Schleef conducted the port impressively quickly and published his results. The intention of this project was to provide a high quality set of royalty free media codecs for a common mobile computing platform. The initial focus is Firefox Mobile on the N900, so I am working on integrating David’s work into Firefox. To experiment with other facilities Firefox could use to accelerate video playback, and test integration, I’ve been hacking on a branch of a stand-alone Ogg Theora and Vorbis player originally written by Chris Double called plogg.’”
