Free MPEG1 video player library with sound support

SMPEG is a free MPEG1 video player library with sound support. Video playback is based on the ubiquitous Berkeley MPEG player, mpeg_play v2.2. Audio is played through a slightly modified mpegsound library, part of Splay v0.8.2. SMPEG supports MPEG audio MP3, MPEG-1 video, and MPEG system streams.

plaympeg, gtv, and glmovie are simple video players provided to test the library. The C library interface is ‘documented’ in smpeg.h, and the C++ library interface is spread out over the MPEG*.h files.

This is a work in progress. Only 16 bit color depth is supported. The player will dynamically conver to other color depths, but playback will be much faster if your display is already set to 16 bit color depth.
