NAME

Video::Xine - Perl interface to libxine

SYNOPSIS

  use Video::Xine;

  # Create and initialize the Xine object
  my $xine = Video::Xine->new(
    config_file => "$ENV{'HOME'}/.xine/config",
  );

  # Load a video driver
  my $video_driver = Video::Xine::Driver::Video->new($xine,"auto",1,$x11_visual);

  # Create a new stream (put your video driver under $DRIVER)
  my $stream = $xine->stream_new(undef,$DRIVER);

  # Open a file on the stream
  $stream->open('file://my/movie/file.avi')
    or die "Couldn't open stream: ", $stream->get_error();

  # Get the current position (0 .. 65535), position in time, and length
  # of stream in milliseconds
  my ($pos, $pos_time, $length_time) = $stream->get_pos_length();

  # Start the stream playing
  $stream->play()
     or die "Couldn't play stream: ", $xine->get_error();

  # Play the stream to the end
  while ( $stream->get_status() == XINE_STATUS_PLAY ) {
    sleep(1);
  }

DESCRIPTION

A perl interface to Xine, the Linux movie player. More properly, an interface to libxine, the development library. Requires installation of libxine.

Xine by itself does not provide a user interface, and neither does this interface. Instead, you must set up the window using your own windowing code, and pass the window information to Xine.

EXPORT

STATUS CONSTANTS

The Status constants are the results for a get_status() call. See xine.h for details.

  • XINE_STATUS_STOP

    Indicates that the stream is stopped.

  • XINE_STATUS_PLAY

    Indicates that the stream is playing.
