CrutziPlayer - Standalone Player for Browser Plugins
This is the homepage of CrutziPlayer, my own standalone player for NPAPI (and maybe Pepper) based browser plugins (like libflashplayer.so).
Well, because there wasn't anything available, that...
- doesn't need width/height parameters, but retrieves them from the content media (e.g. .swf files)
- uses the Xcomposite extension for hardware accelerated fullscreen, instead of e.g. slow flash based scaling
- provides low latency sound with PulseAudio
Why is it written in Python?
I just wanted to learn Python, and the language provides a beautiful interface to C function calls as well as callbacks... perfect for using plugins!
And, of course, as XBMC uses Python for plugins, it will be easier to integrate it later on ;-)
Which OS's are supported?
- and ... no, that's it :-)
How to use it?
First, install the .deb package below.
Then, run it on any .swf file, either installed locally or remote.
F11 toggles fullscreen, F12 switches between cario zoom and plugin resize.
