Gmerlin is a multimedia framework, which allows you to quickly develop multimedia applications. It is built upon gavl for low level Audio/Video things and libxml2 for loading and saving configuration data and other things. The gmerlin API can be used at multiple levels Either you take the basic things like plugins, fifos, message-queues and gavl audio/video converters and build your own media engine. The other possibility is to use the player or transcoder engines directly. The latter approach is probably easier, but you’ll have less freedom in controlling the process.
Gmerlin includes GUI player with mediatree and a GUI transcoder among other things.
