ideas for rebol in the media market:
maybe you could write a rebol codec for quicktime:
rebol could be a quicktime_browser_plugin/codec:
Since quicktime 5, the browser plugin automatically downloads from the apple
server the last version of third party quicktime codecs. This would be a
neat way to propagate rebol, mean we can tomorrow provide our rebol enhanced
medias to people that have quicktime installed (about more than 100'000'000)
so that we can get control of the quicktime_plugin with rebol an so have
access to some 200 media formats. In some way it should be possible to have
the rebol codec (a full rebol/core|base (180kb! hahaha..) automatically
download and install and without a restart load a quicktime movie with a
rebol track that will communicate with a uniserve calling for xml data to
send to another quicktime track in the same movie that will play it.
flash is one of those many codecs that quicktime supports.
that rebol track could call at a certain time in the movie a rugby server
for a Olivia's rebol/flash generated vector map with hotspots to go on in
ideas for rebol/view on os x:
(also have a look at
and instead of ruby and imported cocoa object you provide a dialect
for us common people so we'll end up with a rebol/view with cocoa interface.
(so you can make your rebol/view window half transparent 8 and use OpenGL
for rendering and broadcaster api to stream your stream to an opensource
multiplatform darwin rebroadcaster server..)
I could issue commands like:
speak/loud/voice veronika "Hello world"
or build a rebol based distributed interactive multidirectional media
streams nowadays that is still to come. and in view:
(so from apple you get open-source streaming server for Linux, Solaris and
... QuickTime Broadcaster live encoder API (mpeg4 encoders 8)) on os x. If
you add something like this:
conference/now [anton cecyl karoline]
and have rebol/view on os x turn into something like this:
please check this too:
this would make people write a rebol dialect for applescript (which I find
really tooo long to code)..
here I could script rebol to parse some web page content plus get some media
,open photoshop and make it batch transform stuff and so on..
(you can send applevents thru tcp/ip but why would you?)
well I must say I would start to learn applescript if I could code in rebol,
it is indeed a very powerful tool if you are in media postproduction.

..can import xml files (and is applescriptaple)
