xjadeo-0.4.0-rc1 - X Jack Video Monitor
Xjadeo is a simple movie player that synchronizes video to an external
time source such as jack transport. It is intended to aid sound
composition to a video clip.
This is a rewrite of the previous 0.1 release and a
conclusion of the ongoing development during the last year.
New Features include
* displays: Xv, x11+imlib2
* fullscreen and letterbox video
* improved video file reading via ffmpeg
* on screen display
* configuration file
* LASH - session management
* optional GUI - qjadeo
* remote control interface
* Midi Time Clock quarterframe sync
* OSX support (experimental)
Mixing ffmepg and Xv may produce unexpected effects on some
architectures. Please report them as those are the main reason for this
Although there are many new Features, only the on-screen-display might
have an impact on the perfomance of xjadeo. since 0.3.13 xjadeo
uses gettimeofday(3) for it's internal timekeeping. - it appears that
using clock(3) was a major-bug in the original xjadeo code, though not
The default xjadeo configuration is to run with a low profile:
Additional Features need to be enabled explicitly (LASH is an
exception). Performance highly depends on the Codec and geometry of the
video file: the -K, -k arguments allow to seek many file formats - but
is intended only for preview!
There are open ends in osX support: This version includes workarounds
for use with ffmpeg on PPC. , but they might not work for all versions
of ffmpeg. - Are you an intel-mac user who succeeded to run 'make test'
in the ffmpeg svn src? - give us a wink :)
http://packman.links2linux.org/package/xjadeo/ provides SuSE-RPMs for
i586 and also for x64-64bit. many thanks! We are pleasantly surprised,
since we expected serious video-Codec and xjadeo-Xv problems for 64 bit
architecture. We have not tested any of the RPMs ourselves. - imlib
display + mjpeg codec should work though.
A beta-devel debian package can be built from source and the
xjadeo.spec.in is intended for FC4 RPMs.
