43 Philip'a TODO list: (alphabetically ordered) (please help)
44 ------------------
45 - Add a multi-ffm filetype so that feeds can be recorded into multiple files rather
46 than one big file.

48 - Change ASF files so that the embedded timestamp in the frames is right rather
49 than being an offset from the start of the stream
50 - Make ffm files more resilient to changes in the codec structures so that you
51 can play old ffm files.
