[ Here it is !! The first, fully-featured MPEG-player with X11-interface. ]
[ XMPLAY exists currently in Version 1.0, patches are available. The next ]
[ Version 1.1 is currently in development. Thats the announcement ! ]
XMPLAY [Version 1.1] - Sun Apr 10 14:51:22 MDT 1994
This distribution is the result of a project worked out at the
Technical University (TU) Berlin, held in Winter 93/94 by
Tom Pfeifer. The basic idea is created by Frank Gadegast,
the programing work was then done by Juergen Meyer, Metin
Cetinkaya and Frank Gadegast.

XMPLAY [Version 1.1]
XMPLAY is a very nice directory-browser under X11 to use XMPEG,
the interactive X11-MPEG-player.
MPEG is a video-format described by the ISO-standard ISO CD11172.
This implementation here can handle MPEG-stream written down
at the MPEG-group-meeting in Paris '92. It can handle IPB-frames
but no system- nor audio-information.
Additional you get a little utility called MPEGINFO, showing you, if called
with the filename of a MPEG-file the most important parameter it can read
dirrectly from its header, like size, picture rate or frame-style.
It should work under nearly every system, 'cause it's programed without
MOTIF, the X11-Toolit or other stupid things, that are always causing
problems. It only needs the X11-library, no matter if you're using
Release 3, 4 or Release 5.
In addition it has lots of defines to let it run under BSD, SYSV, ISC,
Solaris, SunOS, A/UX, SCO or XENIX and you don't have to hack a difficult
Imake- or Makefile and you will not have trouble with build-in pathnames !!!
It's specially made for those systems, that don't have super hardware
or that have problems with the Toolkit or MOTIF.
XMPEG [Version 1.1]
XMPEG is a MPEG-video-player based on the MPEG-widget-implementation
from Jim Frost and the MPEG-movie-player "mpeg_play" from the Portable
Video Research Group at Berkeley.
It just adds a few buttons and is normally getting called
from XMPLAY, but can be used as stand-alone to include into other
programs. Its programmed with the same methods than XMPLAY.
