Description helmutpozimski 2008-02-19 15:56:05 UTC
I have been searching for an alternative to the prorpietary flash video for a while now. The only really usable solution I found was the cortado java applet. I am using it with itheora to improve usability. While this is working great with java 1.5, I have some serious problems with java 1.6. (I am using java 6 update 2 on Debian GNU/linux lenny amd64) For some videos, the video plays correct but the sound vanishes after a few seconds and reappears at the end of the video (jou can find a german sample video on this happens to most of the videos I tried but there are some that play correctly. This problem has also been reported on an Ubuntu i386-system so it doesn't seem to be 64-bit related. I have already reported that bug to fluendo ( but they don't seem to work on Cortado anymore. 

Some people at the theora mailinglist pointed me to the wikimedia fork of Cortado. I checked out the latest version from the svn, installed the sun jdk (as well 1.6) and compiled debug and stripped versions of cortado. I just replaced the cortado version delivered with itheora with my compiled version of the wikimedia svn-version but it's still the same picture, 1.5 works, 1.6 not.
