       gtv - MPEG audio (MP3) and video (MPEG-1) player with GTK+ GUI


       gtv file


       gtv  is  an  MPEG  audio and video player that uses the SDL MPEG Player
       Library.  It can play back MPEG audio (layer 1, 2 and  3),  MPEG  video
       (MPEG-1) and MPEG system (audio and video combined) files. MPEG-2 video
       files (as found on DVDs) are not supported.

       The video player works best on a 16 bit color  depth  X11  display,  it
       works  on  other color depths with reduced speed as well. You’ll need a
       CPU with 300 MHz or more to play back an MPEG  system  stream  with  25
       frames per seconds (fps) at full speed.
