snappy 0.1 is out!

grab it while it's hot :)

full size

i'm proud to announce the release of snappy 0.1, codename: "louis, i think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship."

snappy is a new media player that gathers the power and flexibility of gstreamer inside the comfort of a minimalistic clutter interface.

the 0.1 release has support for everything you would expect from a video player:
  • play/pause
  • fullscreen
  • seeking
  • audio volume control
  • mute/unmute.

everything available through the mouse or the keyboard. the controls overlay (see screenshot above) fades in when you move the mouse over the video, but it can be made sticky or hidden. these controls are relative to the video display size, so it will scale and remain readable when viewed fullscreen in projectors/televisions.

download a tarball: bz2 or gz
clone the git repo

this release is the base of what snappy will be. it has powerful features planned for future releases, for example:
  • snappy will be remotely controllable with rygel and dlna devices
  • it will cut videos through in/out points in the seekbar.
  • but most interestingly, it will be cross-platform and showcase and introduce people in other platforms to the gstreamer framework, by supporting gst-launch style pipelines.

edit: ubuntu packages available in the gstreamer developer's ppa
a debian package will be available soon in debian unstable, so stay tuned.

Snappy is fun to hack on, already does most of what one needs in a video player and with gst-launch pipeline support will be stupidly flexible thanks to GStreamer.

Very interesting. :)

There is a name conflict with, which was released last week.

julian, i saw this and decided that since it's two different domains there shouldn't be a need for a name change. one is a compression/decompression library the other one is a media player.

that said, if google think there is a name collision they are welcomed to contact me.

there is also a screen capture application called snappy.

Nice job! My compliments! And good luck! I'm working with clutter too, for an image viewer (see link).

marco, thanks! the performance on your preview video is amazing. i've always found eog slow to load big pictures, if you offer better performance with a better ui, i would switch in a heart-beat.

Thank you for your words luis! I still have a lot of work to do; I want to concentrate on the engine before everything else, then on the ui.

I just packaged this for openSUSE.

De: luisbg Fecha: 2011-03-27 00:21
