Tom and Andrew


I have updated VP on the projects page (http://www.accessgrid.org/project/videopresence) with the new SVN link and also added a link to the VP Binaries.


If there is any other information that should be listed, send me an email and I will up dated it.

Hi Eric & Tom,

Thanks for the near-simultaneous heads-ups :) I originally got that URL from you, Tom, in an email a few months ago; the only other reference I can see is on the VP project page on accessgrid.org which still points to a CVS repository on agcentral. Also, it might be good for that page to include the binaries from the ANU page (http://if.anu.edu.au/SW/VP.html) or at least link to it.

Also, how hard it is for a separate service-type app like VP to access the shared data services from the Venue server that shared apps have? One of the features we want to have is captioning, and I'm not sure whether it would be best to integrate it fully into VP via shared services or to somehow piggyback the text data on RTP for reception within VP with a separate pure Python shared app for entry.

Hi Andrew:

There haven't been any changes to the VP SVN at UChicago since I imported that code. It was placed there so that people could use and improve it.

Due to a recent change in the svn server, you'll want to use the following URL to access that code:


Let me know where you got the incorrect URL and I'll make sure it gets updated.

Does anyone know if VP is still being actively developed? Here at RIT we're looking to develop a better interface for dealing with lots of videos, and it might be best for us to build on that instead of reinventing the wheel.

Also, the SVN repository that, I think, holds the VP code as well as AGVCRtoMPEG2 and some other projects seems to be down at the moment. (https://www.ci.uchicago.edu/svn/if-media)
