    From [via djgpp-announce@delorie.com]" <@21:1/5 to All on Sat Dec 31 17:54:12 2022
    This is a port of x264 0.164.3095_baee400 to MSDOS/DJGPP.

    x264 is a free software library and application for encoding video streams
    into the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC compression format, and is released under the
    terms of the GNU GPL.

    Features Overview:
    * Provides best-in-class performance, compression, and features.
    * Achieves dramatic performance, encoding 4 or more 1080p streams
    in realtime on a single consumer-level computer.
    * Gives the best quality, having the most advanced psychovisual
    * Support features necessary for many different applications,
    such as television broadcast, Blu-ray low-latency video
    applications, and web video.
    * x264 forms the core of many web video services, such as Youtube,
    Facebook, Vimeo, and Hulu. It is widely used by television
    broadcasters and ISPs.

    DJGPP specific changes.

    - The source code for this port has been retrieved from www.videolan.org
    by cloning the master branch of the git repository like this:
    git clone https://code.videolan.org/videolan/x264.git
    The version string used internally by this port is generated by version.sh
    located in the root directory. It produces the following string:
    and is useless to produce a meaningfull version number for the DJGPP port,
    thus the version number is 1 (one) and will be increased with every new
    port release, although I think that there will be no second one.

    - A DJGPP specific rule has been added to the configure script, for details
    see the patch.

    - The reading/writing stream is switched into O_BINARY mode. If the
    stream is connected to stdin/stdout/TTY, then Ctrl-C and Ctrl-Break
    are re-enabled so the user can interrupt the program.

    - The code does not provide documentation in a usefull format, thus
    the man page created by the debian port has been added.

    - x264 can be tested by compiling and runing the three programs example,
    checkasm8, checkasm10.

    - There are no user visible changes. Only small changes have been done
    to get the library compiled.

    - To configure and compile this port at least the following version of
    Bash and Make are required:
    No previous versions will work nor are supported. Any future version
    should work.

    - The port has been configured and compiled on WinXP SP3, Win98SE and
    MSDOS 6.22 with DOSLFN v0.41f. There is no guarantee that this may
    be possible with any other DOS-like OS. Due to the use of long file
    names it will not be possible to configure and compile without LFN
    support. The port has been compiled using gcc346 and bnu2351b.

    As usual, all djgpp specific files (diffs, README files, etc.) are stored
    in the "djgpp" directory. The sources have been configured to be build
    in the "0build" directory. If for some reason it does not work for you,
    delete its contents and configure from scratch again.

    Please read the docs to become familiar with this product.
