    13 [http://gnome.org/opw/ Outreach Program for Women (OPW)] is a program that helps women (cis and trans) and genderqueer get involved in free and open source software. Through the guidance of mentors, interns gain valuable experience interacting with and coding for open source projects like FFmpeg. Additionally, the project and its users benefit from code created from students who often continue contributing as developers.

    338338'''Description:''' Libavfilter is the FFmpeg filtering library. It currently supports audio and video filtering and generation support. This work may focus on porting, fixing, extending, or writing new audio and video filters from scratch.
    339339
    340 Candidate filters for porting may be the remaining MPlayer filters currently supported through the mp wrapper, libaf MPlayer filters, and filters from other frameworks (e.g. mjpegtools, transcode, avisynth, virtualdub, etc.). In case of mp ports, the student should verify that the new filter produces the same output and is not slower.

    465 Students can discuss an idea in the [https://ffmpeg.org/mailman/listinfo/ffmpeg-devel/ ffmpeg-devel] mailing-list, the #ffmpeg-devel IRC channel, or contact the FFmpeg GSoC admins for more information.
