Projects / Gmerlin


Gmerlin is a set of multimedia libraries which comes with several applications. Applications include a full featured media player with Gtk-2 GUI, an audio/video transcoder, a webcam application, and an ALSA mixer. The libraries provide many low-level functions like handling of uncompressed A/V streams or decoding a wide range of multimedia formats. All libraries were written with good reusability in mind, so you can easily write your own applications based on gmerlin libraries.
