It's a bit confusing to have now 2 utilities having the same name
(as xmpeg is already a part of the XMPLAY distritution. It would
be nice to rename the following tool to xmpeg.tk, contacted the author
about that but got no reply :o(
xmpeg (ver 0.5b)
Tk/Tcl based front end to mpeg_play.
xmpeg is a simple script that allows users of mpeg_play to have a graphical
front end to mpeg_play. This means that one does not have to remember
what the command line switches are needed, or what kinds of dithering are
available. The idea for this came about when we started using NCSA's xmosaic.
Sometimes it would take 10 minutes to retrieve an mpeg file and it would only
be displayed once. If you missed it or wanted to view it again, you would
have to retreive it again and again. Thus xmpeg came into play.
It takes a file name as an argument (a temp file in xmosaic's case)
and allows the user to specify the settings they wish to use. Then the user
clicks on 'Play Anim' and mpeg_play is invoked.
REQUIREMENTS: In order to use xmpeg you should have Tk 3.3, Tcl 7.0 and
mpeg_play 2.0. This has been tested on Sun's running SunOS 4.1.3.
