@section OpenJPEG

FFmpeg can use the OpenJPEG libraries for encoding/decoding J2K videos. Go to
@url{http://www.openjpeg.org/} to get the libraries and follow the installation
instructions. To enable using OpenJPEG in FFmpeg, pass @code{--enable-libopenjpeg} to
@file{./configure}.


@section OpenCORE and VisualOn libraries

Spun off Google Android sources, OpenCore, VisualOn and Fraunhofer
