1 DESCRIPTION

Playbin2 Player is a pure gstreamer-based video player with support for faster / slower playback. It only requires Python 2.5, so Maemo devices (e.g. Nokia N900) can run it. Gstreamer playback is hardware-accelerated on Maemo (as well as other mobile / embedded platforms), so pb2player may have an advantage over other media players.

This is the development branch of pb2player. The latest current stable release series is v1.0.x.

2 DEPENDENCIES

  • gstreamer-0.10 and PyGST
  • Gtk+ 2 and PyGTK
  • Python 2.5+

3 INSTALLING

Download and unpack a release to your preferred destination and follow the relevant README.

For the development branch, download with git, then run pb2player directly from the source folder:

git clone git://github.com/danmbox/playbin2player.git

4 RUNNING

Run pb2player [ mediafile.ext | playlist.m3u ]

The player accepts only m3u playlists.
