|lqtplay(1)||General Commands Manual||lqtplay(1)|
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 gstreamer.
- Don't use the Xvideo extension for accelerated video playback (YUV->RGB color space conversion + video scaling in hardware).
- 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.
