What is Freedom Bucket

[Image credit : http://www.flickr.com/photos/magical-world/1476858690/ ]

Freedom Bucket : is a idea coined by me to make a special directory in Linux based system which will contain only Open Format files for images, ogv , ogg for video and audio.

There will be a daemon who will watch the content of this directory. Whenever user copy paste any new fies (Ex , new jpg images from his camera or new video files in mp4 format), freedom deamon will convert these new files into corresponding open standard format.

The aim of this project to remove non-standard and royalty based format from earth. It will be useful for those persons who want to use only open format.

I have done jpg to png conversion with some issues. I will cover video and office document format later.
