Description

Xineliboutput plugin is a front-end for VDR. It includes a MPEG decoder so a hardware decoder is not needed. Xineliboutput displays OSD and video in

  • X (in a raw X/Xv/XvMC window) or
  • Linux framebuffer/DirectFB

The plugin includes a built-in image and media player that supports playback of most known media files (avi/mp3/divx/jpeg/...) and network radio/video streams (http, rtsp, ...) directly from VDR. The plugin is already quite usable, but it is still under heavy development (as of pre-1.0.0) -- installing very recent versions of xine-lib and DirectFB (if used) is probably required and possibly even patches to xine-lib may be needed.
