qmpwidget - A Qt widget for embedding MPlayer


QMPwidget is a small class which allows Qt developers to embed an MPlayer instance into their application for convenient video playback. Starting with version 4.4, Qt can be build with Phonon, the KDE multimedia framework (see http://doc.trolltech.com/phonon-overview.html for an overview). However, the Phonon API provides only a limited amount of functionality, which may be too limited for some purposes.

In contrast, this class provides a way of embedding a full-fledged movie player within an application. This means you can use all of MPlayer's features, but also that you will need to ship a MPlayer binary with your application if you can't make sure that it is already installed on a user system.
