lqtplay - simple quicktime movie player for X11.
lqtplay [ options ] file
just plays the given quicktime movie in a window on your X11 display.
Sound is played using a OSS dsp device or Alsa (if available). Some info
about the movie and some other stuff is printed on stderr. No fancy GUI.
The only interactive element is that you can resize the window, and lqtplay
will adapt the video size if support for hardware-scaled video is
comes with libquicktime and uses libquicktime to read and decode the movies.
It is a sample application and intentionally kept simple. If you want a
full-featured media player, have a look at gstreamer.
Don't use the Xvideo extension for accelerated video playback (YUV->RGB
color space conversion + video scaling in hardware).
Don't use OpenGL (via GLX extension) for video scaling. By default
lqtplay tries to use 3D textures to scale RGB frames in hardware if
DRI is available.
Don't use Alsa for audio output. By default lqtplay uses Alsa
if it was available at compile time.
The usual toolkit options (like -geometry) are accepted too.
