libglvideo

A simple, cross-platform MP4/MOV video player with the following priorities:

  • ease of use
  • ease of maintenance
  • performance and customizability

libglvideo is best suited for those that need simple, fast video in OpenGL and can control their entire video workflow. Compared to other video players, libglvideo is best defined by what it lacks:

  • audio (for now)
  • support for containers other than MP4/MOV
  • support for most codecs, especially codecs that do inter-frame compression

Platform Support

Tested on:

  • OS X 10.11 (x86_64)
  • Windows 10 (x64)

Codec Support

  • MJPEG (slow, done on the CPU)
  • Hap YCoCg

Coming soon

  • other Hap formats
  • OpenEXR?
  • audio

Building

git submodule update --init --recursive # pull in dependencies
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ../
make

or maybe use cmake .. -G "Visual Studio 14 2015 Win64" if you're on Windows.

CMake

To incorporate this library into another project with CMake, add something like the following lines to your CMakeLists.txt file:

get_filename_component(LIBGLVIDEO_PATH  "${APP_PATH}/lib/libglvideo" ABSOLUTE)
find_package(libglvideo REQUIRED PATHS "${LIBGLVIDEO_PATH}/cmake" NO_DEFAULT_PATH)
include_directories("${LIBGLVIDEO_INCLUDE_DIRS}")
target_link_libraries(my-executable libglvideo)
