Sure, I think that would be great. Just think of some goals that you think
would be nice to work on for the summer. Stuff like usability improvements
(can't set the port without recompiling currently), feature improvements
(dash, audio streams without any video, video streams with very slow and
variable framerates, multicast) and so on. Stick what you think of on Trac.
I'm up to mentor you (though I don't suppose you'll need much of it). If
someone else asks about it I'll mention that there's already a promising
student working on it.
