A video player for 9front.
What can it play? MP4 and MKV/WEBM files, which are multimedia containers. Video formats supported are AV1, H.264 (baseline only), VP8 and VP9. Only 8-bit per component YUV 4:2:0 is supported atm. AAC, OPUS and Vorbis audio is supported.
It's only supposed to build and run on AMD64 for now.
More is coming. Patches are very welcome, too.
Install git9, then:
cd /tmp git/clone https://git.sr.ht/~ft/dav1d git/clone https://git.sr.ht/~ft/faad2 git/clone https://git.sr.ht/~ft/h264bsd git/clone https://git.sr.ht/~ft/libvpx git/clone https://git.sr.ht/~ft/mcfs git/clone https://git.sr.ht/~ft/treason cd libvpx && mk cd ../dav1d/src && mk cd ../../h264bsd/src && mk install cd ../../treason && mk install cd ../mcfs && mk install cd ../faad2/libfaad && mk install && cd ../frontend && mk install
For opus decoding see adding opus support to 9front (scroll down on the post).
See how to Youtube on ⑨.
This is a half-baked early stage project, there are many things missing, in need of improvement, and some (probably) are outright wrong.
You need a fast computer to play AV1. H.264 doesn't require as much. VP8/VP9 might be a good alternative.
If you see random crashes, try running with
decoding "works on my machine", but who knows.
Sigrid on 9gridchan or freenode.
