I wanted to try out an SVG Animation example that someone sent me but Firefox currently doesn't have support for this. Bug 216462 contains a patch with a work in progress implementation of SVG Animation so I looked into trying it out.
Unfortunately it has suffered some bitrot recently so I made the changes to get it to apply on the current CVS. There were some problems causing crashes which I fixed up and I've updated the bug with the adjusted patch.
Jeff Schiller commented previously in the bug about wanting to try it out but not being able to build so I made my builds available for him to play with. His latest blog post mentions the results of trying the build out. Thanks for giving it the run through Jeff!
If you want to have a play with a build with the SMIL patch applied, you can try my experimental builds:
- Windows, SMIL + Video Patch with Theora Backend
- Linux, SMIL + Video patch with Theora backend
- Linux, SMIL + Video patch with GStreamer backend
These also have the video patch applied.
