ffplay-gtk simple media player

February 09, 2020 — BarryK

Long-time Puppy Forum member 'plinej' has created a GUI for 'ffplay' the CLI media player in the ffmpeg package. It also needs 'ffprobe', which is in the ffmpeg package.

It also needs a recent 'xdotool', which fakes keyboard and mouse entry. I compiled it from github. Already had it, but maybe the version from Debian is too old.

Here is the forum thread:

There were some icons missing in EasyOS, fixed.

I jazzed up the pet.specs file:

ffplay-gtk-0.7|ffplay-gtk|0.7||Multimedia;mediaplayer|84K|||+ffmpeg,+gtkdialog,+xdotool|ffplay-gtk Media Player||||

This will be in the next release of EasyOS and EasyPup.
