i'm proud to announce the release of snappy 0.1, codename: "louis, i think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
is a new media player that gathers the power and flexibility of gstreamer
inside the comfort of a minimalistic clutter
the 0.1 release has support for everything you would expect from a video player:
- audio volume control
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:
edit: ubuntu packages available in the gstreamer developer's ppa
- 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.
a debian package will be available soon in debian unstable, so stay tuned.
