This is a bit of a harsh thing to say. If there was really a need from
Erlang users, then perhaps the erlyvideo project would have received
It can be guessed that the majority of the erlyvideo users aren't Erlang
developers and therefore wouldn't contribute code back. So the decision
to make it closed source makes sense.
Now if one day there's a new need for an open source media server
written in Erlang, surely alternatives will come out and Erlyvideo might
want to open source it again. But there's no evidence that this will
happen anytime soon.
I'm all for open source personally, but it's no silver bullet.
