Submission + - CoreAVC for Linux Project taken down due to DMCA (

rippe77 writes: Google has taken down the opensource project CoreAVC for Linux due to the DMCA complaint. The CoreAVC codec is a commercial high definition H.264 direct show filter for windows provided by CoreCodec Inc. The CoreAVC for Linux project provided various patches for linux applications (mplayer, MythTV, xine) to use these direct show decoder filters in Linux. The takedown is quite controversial as the coreAVC project did not provide any copyrighted material only means to use the direct show filters in Linux.
