Meta.Vlc

Introduction

Meta.Vlc 是一个 LibVlc 封装库的 .NET 实现,封装了大部分的 LibVlc 的功能,该项目主要是为了寻求一个在 WPF 上使用 Vlc 的完美的解决方案,Meta.Vlc 提供一个原生的 WPF 播放控件(Meta.Vlc.Wpf),该控件采用 InteropBitmap 与共享内存进行播放视频,是一个原生的 WPF 控件,不存在 HwndHost 的空域问题.

Meta.Vlc is an LibVlc solution for .NET, it has encapsulated most of functionalities of LibVlc. This project aims to find a perfect solution for using Vlc on WPF. Meta.Vlc provides an native WPF control(Meta.Vlc.Wpf), this control achieves video playback by utilizing InteropBitmap and shared memory. Since it’s a native WPF control, it doesn't suffer from HwndHost’s airspace issue.

01.可为其他控件生成 VideoSource。
01.VideoSource can be used in other control.
由于呈现线程的改变,VideoSource 将属于呈现线程,而非默认 UI 线程,因此 VideoSource 不在能被默认 UI 线程的元素使用,但是我们为在其他控件使用 VideoSource 准备其他方案。 Due the change of display thread, VideoSource will belong to display thread, not the default UI thread. So VideoSource can't be used by UI element of default UI thread, but we provide another way to use VideoSource for other control.

查看 Use VlcPlayer with other controls 来获取如何在其他控件中使用 VideoSource 的教程。
See Use VlcPlayer with other controls to get more information about use VlcPlayer with other conttols.

01.多线程的图片呈现方式。
01.Multi-Thread video display support. .
SHA1:5fff42c9f4a8c37b65107e23fdfd85ca9b42bfa4
现在我们将用于呈现视频的 Image 控件转移到高优先度的线程,降低由于 UI 操作(更新 UI 等)导致 UI 线程卡死从而导致视频卡顿。
但是目前最多能接受大约 500ms 的卡顿不会影响到视频播放,长时间的 UI 线程卡死仍然会导致视频卡顿,但是解码与呈现线程已经不和 UI 线程有交互。
导致这种情况的原因不明,初步断定为由于文件读写操作与 UI 线程有交互。
Now we move the Image control which used for display video to highest thread, it will reduce stuck when UI thread is busy.
But if UI thread is busy for long time, video still will stuck, but decode thread is not associated with UI thread any more.
No idea about this, but I think the video file IO is associated with UI thread.

02.VlcPlayer 处理 VLC 事件不在主 UI 线程同步处理。
02.VlcPlayer handle event of VLC no longer block the main UI thread.
SHA1:052ed5ec6c16fa43a3c50b8ec594c3176973b97e
完善 VLC 线程与 UI 线程之间的交互,现在 VlcPlayer 在处理 VLC 事件时不会在主 UI 线程上同步。
解决了当主 UI 线程卡死时,视频将暂停播放的问题,现在当主 UI 线程卡死时,视频仍然能够继续播放不受影响。
To improve the interaction between VLC threads and UI thread, VlcPlayer handle event of LibVlc will not sync invoke in main UI thread.
Solved video will be pause when main UI thread is stuck. Now even the main UI thread is stuck, the display will play go on.

03.移除 BeginStop 方法。
03.Remove the BeginStop method.
SHA1:052ed5ec6c16fa43a3c50b8ec594c3176973b97e
由于线程交互的完善,Stop 方法不再会阻塞线程导致死锁,因此 BeginStop 方法不再被需要。
Due to the improvement of thread interaction, Stop method will block the thread no longer, BeginStop method are no longer needed.

01.提供更多结构体封装。
01.Wrap more sturct.

提供新的 LibVlcManager 类来管理 LibVlc 的初始化,让初始化逻辑更清晰。
New LibVlcManager class to manage initialization of LibVlc.

03.添加更多的英文注释。 03.Add more English comment.

注意(Note):
本次更改更倾向于底层代码优化与清理,如果你主要使用 Meta.Vlc 而不是 Meta.Vlc.Wpf,你可能需要做比较多的更改来兼容这次变更。
如果你只是使用 Meta.Vlc.Wpf 只是部分涉及到 TrackDescription 结构,MediaTrack 结构,或是其他结构的 API 有小部分变更。

This commit is only changed and clear up some lowest layer code, if you using Meta.Vlc not Meta.Vlc.Wpf, maybe you should changed many code to compatible this commit.
If you using Meta.Vlc.Wpf, only some APIs about TrackDescription struct, MediaTrack struct or other struct have changed.

Quick Start

在您的项目中快速使用 Meta.Vlc:
Quick start Meta.Vlc in your project:

01.在项目中添加对 Meta.Vlc 的程序集的引用。
01.Add the references of Meta.Vlc to your project.

Meta.Vlc.dll
Meta.Vlc.Wpf.dll

02.在项目的属性中设置 LibVlc 库的目录。
02.Set the path of LibVlc in properties of your project.
$(Your Project)\Properties\AssemblyInfo.cs中添加 VlcSettingsAttribute。
Add a VlcSettingsAttribute in $(Your Project)\Properties\AssemblyInfo.cs.

//设置 LibVlc 的目录
//Set the path of LibVlc
[assembly: VlcSettings(@"..\..\..\LibVlc")] 

//设置 LibVlc 初始化时的选项
//Set the path and options of LibVlc
[assembly: VlcSettings(@"..\..\..\LibVlc", "-I", "dummy", "--ignore-config", "--no-video-title" )]

参考:
See:
https://github.com/higankanshi/Meta.Vlc/blob/master/Meta.Vlc.Wpf.Sample/Properties/AssemblyInfo.cs

03.在 Xaml 中加入 VlcPlayer 控件。
03.Add the VlcPlayer Control in your Xaml

<wpf:VlcPlayer xmlns:wpf="clr-namespace:Meta.Vlc.Wpf;assembly=Meta.Vlc.Wpf" x:Name="vlcPlayer"/>

04.载入媒体并播放。
04.Load and Play the media.

vlcPlayer.LoadMedia(@"C:\VlcTest.mp4");             //载入本地文件    Load a local file
//vlcPlayer.LoadMedia(@"H:\");                      //载入DVD光盘     Load a DVD
//vlcPlayer.LoadMedia(new Uri("http://127.0.0.1")); //载入网络流      Load a Network Stream
vlcPlayer.Play();                                   //播放媒体        Play the media

05.停止媒体与释放资源。
05.Stop the media and Release the resources.

vlcPlayer.Stop()可以用于停止媒体的播放。 vlcPlayer.Stop() used for stop the Player.

VlcPlayer.Stop();
VlcPlayer.Play(); // 重载媒体。         Replay media.

可以在程序结束时调用vlcPlayer.Dispose()释放所有资源。
You can call the vlcPlayer.Dispose()to release the resource when you exit.

06.为音频输出使用均衡器(需要 LibVlc 2.2.0 以上)。
06.Add equalizer for audio(Need LibVlc 2.2.0 and higher).

使用 AudioEqualizer 为音频提供均衡器,并提供 18 种预置均衡器与 10 个可自定义放大数值的频带。
Now we can use AudioEqualizer to provide equalizer for VlcPlayer, have 18 preset equalizers and 10 frequency bands.

//使用预置的均衡器设置初始化均衡器。
//use preset equalizer setting to initilaize AudioEqualizer.

AudioEqualizer ae = new AudioEqualizer(PresetAudioEqualizerType.Classical);
Player.AudioEqualizer = ae;


//使用默认设置初始化均衡器,并为 10 个频带赋值。
//use default setting to initilaize AudioEqualizer and set every frequency bands.

AudioEqualizer ae = new AudioEqualizer();
ae.Preamp = 12;
ae[0] = -1.11022E-15f;
ae[1] = -1.11022E-15f;
ae[2] = -1.11022E-15f;
ae[3] = -1.11022E-15f;
ae[4] = -1.11022E-15f;
ae[5] = -1.11022E-15f;
ae[6] = -7.2f;
ae[7] = -7.2f;
ae[8] = -7.2f;
ae[9] = -9.6f;
Player.AudioEqualizer = ae;

注意(Note):
Meta.Vlc.VlcMediaPlayer 不会引用均衡器实例,仅会复制其值,但是 AudioEqualizer 提供了属性变更通知,你可以使用其属性变更事件来重新设置均衡器。
Meta.Vlc.Wpf.VlcPlayer 会引用均衡器实例,并且监听了当前均衡器的属性变更事件,当当前均衡器有变更会自动的为 VlcMediaPlayer 重新设置均衡器。

The Meta.Vlc.VlcMediaPlayer will not keep a reference to the supplied equalizer so you need set it again after you changed some value of AudioEqualizer, we provide PropertyChanged event for AudioEqualizer you can use this to reset equalizer.
The Meta.Vlc.Wpf.VlcPlayer will keep a reference to the supplied equalizer, when you changed some value of AudioEqualizer, it will auto reset equalizer for VlcMediaPlayer.

07.循环播放视频。
07.loop the media.
通过设置 EndBehavior 来设置当媒体播放完毕后的动作,支持 Nothing,Stop,Repeat 三种模式。
当设置为 Nothing 时,会什么都不做,屏幕仍然会显示最后一帧的画面,你需要先将播放器停止才能重新播放视频。
当设置为 Stop 时,会自动停止视频,屏幕会被清空,并且可以直接使用播放方法重新播放视频,这是默认的行为。
当设置为 Repeat 时,会自动的重新播放视频。

You can set the EndBehavior property to set behavior when media ended. Support Nothing,Stop,Repeat mode.
If you set it to Nothing, player will do nothing after media ended, you need stop it, and you can play again.
If you set it to Stop, player will set to stop.
If you set it to Repeat, player will atuo play again media.

08.特殊的 VLC 功能。
08.Some other extension for VLC.
Meta.Vlc 使用了某些 VLC 的拓展功能,我们目前提供 LibVlc(2.2.0-Meta) 32bit 版本。如果您需要在更低或者更高的 VLC 版本上使用 Meta.Vlc,您可能需要自己编译 VLC for Meta.Vlc,以保证 Meta.Vlc 拓展功能可用。
Meta.Vlc has used some "Expansions" for VLC, we are providing LibVlc(2.2.0-Meta) 32bit version now.But you want to use Meta.Vlc with later or lower version,you could need compile VLC for Meta.Vlc by yourself,to ensure that the expansions are available.
