 PLAYMPEG(1)                                                     PLAYMPEG(1)




 NAME
      plaympeg - MPEG audio (MP3) and video (MPEG-1) player


 SYNOPSIS
      plaympeg [options] file ...


 DESCRIPTION
      plaympeg is an MPEG audio and video player that uses the SDL MPEG
      Player Library.  It can play back MPEG audio (layer 1, 2 and 3), MPEG
      video (MPEG-1) and MPEG system (audio and video combined) files.
      MPEG-2 video files (as found on DVDs) are not supported.

      The video player works best on a 16 bit color depth X11 display, it
      works on other color depths with reduced speed as well. You'll need a
      CPU with 300 MHz or more to play back an MPEG system stream with 25
      frames per secons (fps) at full speed.
