 Bounty
If I understand all right, I have to pay 10% of 805€ from my own pocket when the bounty should fail.

 Re: Bounty
@tommysammy
I'm puzzled why you add 10% to the bounty total, if it's only needed if the bounty target isn't reached. If bounty suceeds, then 10% isn't needed. If bounty fails, then surely they take 10% cut of total before refunding the rest? Or did I miss something?

 Bounty
When we reach the goal of the bounty, we need only to collect 1000 dollar. That is enough. I hope I can change it before I see we have collected enough money.

 Re: Problem with the paypal payment
Walkero :
I had the same problem earlier today. Paypal transaction OK but error at the end and no add in the bounty page.

Just by sending a mail to support@bountysource.com fixed that.

Edit : I just see that your donation was received...

 Re: Problem with the paypal payment
I also got an error message, i got it when the transaction was done and was about to return to the bounty page. I waited a few minutes but the money was still not visible at the bounty page and then i went to bed. Today the transaction was visible so if we're talking about the same error don't worry, just be patient and the money will be there.

 Re: AmigaOs4.1 Altivec Mplayer optimization
is it only for "G4+RadeonHD" people or will "G4 only" people benefit from this work ?
I am asking because as Hans pointed out multiple times, there is no way for an AOneG4 nor a PegG4 to support a RadeonHD card on a PCI or AGP, and even if so, with degraded performance anyway.

 Re: AmigaOs4.1 Altivec Mplayer optimization
@Lio The goal of the bounty is to add Altivec code into the ffmpeg H264 decoder. It is a PowerPC enhancement, not related to the Radeon driver. Any processor with Altivec (that is to say G4, G5, PA6T) will benefit this update. We just don't know what will be the benefit yet.

@zzdh10 to late. First I have to ask the programmer if he meant 805Euro +Vat. When we have collected to much money, we should think about it what we do with the money
