This player stands on the giant shoulders of FFmpeg. Audio rendering is accomplished via portaudio v19. Video rendering is via OpenGL, using fragment programs when possible. User interface is implemented with Qt 4.7. ASS/SSA subtitle rendering is implemented with libass. MOD, XM, S3M, IT file support via libmodplug.

This player provides several performance options to enable adequate video playback on slow hardware:
* skip loop filter
* skip non-reference frames
* skip color converter
* reduce playback speed to accommodate slow video decoding

NOTE: Linux binaries are not provided. Please build from source.
