lqtplay - simple quicktime movie player for X11.
lqtplay [ options ] file
lqtplay 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 available.
lqtplay 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
-noxv Don’t use the Xvideo extension for accelerated video playback
(YUV->RGB color space conversion + video scaling in hardware).
-nogl 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.
