+frei0r - a minimalistic plugin API for video effects
+It is a minimalistic plugin API for video sources and filters. The behaviour of
+the effects can be controlled from the host by simple parameters. The intent is
+to solve the recurring reimplementation or adaptation issue of standard effects.
+It is not meant as a generic API for all kinds of video applications.
+There is no support for the requirements of special application areas like non
+linear editors, hardware accelerated shader effects, and high precision video
+processing. These advanced issues are not even solved satisfactory for non cross
+application plugin apis and are still an evolving field.
+The frei0r API is not meant to be a competing standard to more ambitious
