Hey Fred,

thanks for bringing it to the point ;-)!

* On the comparison with stereoscopic player (and perhaps Peter
Wimmer is listening on this list): - stereoscopic player is very
fast, has low CPU/GPU requirements, is very versatile, but it only
runs on a single OS, and this probably won't ever change, because it
heavily uses MFCs, DirectX, and other proprietary stuff. Peter told
me he's never port it to something elese - bino is cross-platform!
that's its main advantage, especially for Mac or Linux users - bino
is open-source, and that's also a great advantage, because it can be
customized at will! you want a new feature? just implement it! - in
the mean time, other video players will probably gain stereo support,
but Bino will probably always have the most exotic (I mean
stereo-specific) features.

* On asking for new features for those people who desperately want
new features but don't know how to code, just put a feature request
on the bug tracker, and someday it may be coded. Maybe we could
propose a google SoC project. Or maybe we could have a bino moneybox,
you put some money in it for some specific feature, and when someone
wants to get the money, he/she implements that feature. I'm pretty
sure that some of the professional users out there would actually pay
for features. Or companies could contribute new features (as Binocle
did with SDI output - check it out at Dimension3 in Paris in June).

* And now, about the flip-flop request: - I agree that this is an
important feature for stereographers, especially those who go out
with their mac for derushing, and don't want to reboot just to have
stereoscopic player - And the best thing is that it's not that
complicated to implement: two pulldown menus in a dialog box, those
settings would be linked to the video being played, and all we have
to change (I think) is the texture coordinates for the source texture
(we have to be careful about interlaced sources). It just takes time
(probably about 1 or 2 days with testing).
