Dear list members,
please apologise if this is the wrong list.
Please point me to the right one so that I don't create too much useless
I want to display some different Image- and Videoformats on different x
windows provided Linux distributions (Redhat Linux, SuSe Linux, gentoo
There are soooooo much libraries out there which provide some display
possibilities but I'am not sure which one fulfill the requirements.
I have thought about qt, gtk, wxwidgets, sdl and a lot of some others,
but I'am not sure which one is the 'best'.
I know this is not easy to answer and could be a reason for a flamewar
but please don't use my mail for such a useless discussion start ;-)
Please try to answer from objective point of view ;-)
1.) Does I only need the xorg libs or are this libs only for some basic
routines and I need more high level libs to fulfill my requirements?
2.) Use the 'fastest' possible way to display n*streams similar on one
or n monitors.
3.) Use as less resouces as possible
4.) Provide http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hardware_overlay or similar
5.) I plan to use http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMD_Performance_Library
=> http://framewave.sourceforge.net/ for decoding. Does anybody have
used this lib or the ipp
6.) I think I don't need the 3D functions of the cards.
I'am relatively new to the X-Window environment and happy for any help
Many thanks to your answers.
