Well, not really new. DCelso published the first version of the library nearly three weeks ago… but it’s new to me! 🙂
As you have probably supposed, this library is a wrapper around smpeg, a library for playing MPEG1 files in SDL. Up until now, there was another binding that came from Fenix and provided similar functionality, but it was poorly implemented, discontinued and didn’t really work in 32bpp mode.
Now you have the chance to use DCelso’s implementation for your projects. He’s uploaded a Windows binary with full source and some sample code. Get the Windows version, the standalone Linux version or -if you have enabled the unofficial BennuGD repos for Ubuntu– install the module with one click.
Below you can see a screenshot of the code playing a computer generated animation.
