       aviplay [options] [ files | URLs ]


       aviplay  is  a QT-based player for various avi, asf, mpeg4
       movie files.  Avifile project creates library that  allows
       programs to read and write compressed AVI/ASF files (Indeo
       Video, DivX :-), etc.)  under Unix OS. (De)compression  is
       performed  with  various  plugins (included Win32 DLLs for
       x86 OS) if native codec is not available.  Win32 libraries
       have  to  be  downloaded  separately. Primarily the ffmpeg
       project is used for codecs and also  for  stream  parsing.
       Over  the time it's possible the project will mostly blend
       into ffmpeg.


       * low CPU usage (movies playable even P200MMX)

       * smooth video (using threads and frame precaching)

       * supports streamed .asf files

       * audio resampling suppport

       * modular design

SHELL variables:

       WIN32_PATH  -  can  be  used  to  override  library   path
       /usr/lib/win32 which holds MS Windows binary dll codecs.

       AVIPLUGIN_PATH  -  can  be  used  to override library path
       /usr/lib/avifile which holds avifile plugins.

       AVIPLAY_MUTE_AUDIO - if set shows just video track

       AVIPLAY_MUTE_VIDEO - if set plays just audio track

       AVIPLAY_NOSYNC - do not synchronize audio and video track

       Press  the  About button in aviplay's GUI for more details
       about the usage and configuation.

       Aviplay automaticaly searches for subtitle file  with  the
       same name as the original ".avi" file but with .sub, .SUB,
       .srt, .SRT, .txt, .TXT, .smi, .SMI suffix.

       For Debian users: After the discussion with  the  autor  I
       have  came to the conclusion that GSM codec is legaly dis­
       tributed under GPL terms since  this  piece  of  code  was
       donated  to  the  project by the original author which was
       using it in the non-GPL project xanim.


       http://avifile.sourceforge.net for the original source and
       main CVS archive for binary codecs.

       http://mplayerhq.hu  for mplayer - an excelent player with
       more options and supported formats
