Description: the xine video player, user interface
This is an X11 based GUI for the libxine video player library.
It provides xine, a skin based media player that can play all the
audio/video formats that libxine supports. Currently, this includes MPEG1/2,
some AVI and Quicktime files, some network streaming methods and disc based
media (VCD, SVCD, DVD). A more complete list can be found on
This package contains an additional front end, aaxine, which runs even on the
console. aaxine uses aalib to render ASCII art video, or you can tell it to
use a framebuffer device. This is more a proof of concept, but you can use it
to watch DVDs on your old vt100 terminal, of course. ;-)
Most DVDs on the market today are play-protected by the Content Scrambling
System (CSS). Xine does not provide any code to descramble those DVDs,
because of legal uncertainties. Have a look at
/usr/share/doc/xine-ui/README.Debian for more information!
