The latest version of png2theora
(https://svn.xiph.org/trunk/theora/examples/png2theora.c) adds a few filtering
flags when it opens pngs:
png_read_png(png_ptr, info_ptr, PNG_TRANSFORM_STRIP_16 |
PNG_TRANSFORM_STRIP_ALPHA | PNG_TRANSFORM_PACKING, NULL);
This actually makes png2theora work for my needs (making seekwatcher movies for
IO visualization) - could this be backported to our package?
Thanks to Chris for finding this solution...
libtheora-1.0beta2-3, which fixes this is on its way to a rawhide near you.
I do not believe this warrants an F-8 update, but if you have compelling
arguments let me know.
Thanks Hans - I'd like to see this in F8 so that I can put movie-capable
seekwatcher into F8... it's not critical, but it was my original motivation for
filing this bug. :)

Ah, so fixing this is needed to update another package, well thats a valid
argument, but first bug 402551 needs to be fixed, as currently libtheora can't
even build, so it isn't on its way to rawhide after all (build failed), see bug
Well, the seekwatcher package doesn't exist yet... it's pending a solution for
the movie-generation, then I can finish up the review & put it in. If that
affects your decision. :)
libtheora-1.0beta2-3.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 testing repository. If
problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update libtheora'
