       lqtplay - simple quicktime movie player for X11.


       lqtplay [ options ] file


       lqtplay  just  plays  the given quicktime movie in a window on your X11
       display.  Sound is played using a OSS dsp device (if available).   Some
       info  about  the  movie  and some other stuff is printed on stderr.  No
       fancy GUI.  The only interactive element is that  you  can  resize  the
       window,  and lqtplay will adapt the video size if support for hardware-
       scaled video is available.

       lqtplay comes with libquicktime  and  uses  libquicktime  to  read  and
       decode  the  movies.  It is a sample application and intentionally kept
       simple.  If you want a full-featured  media  player,  have  a  look  at


       -noxv  Don't  use  the  Xvideo extention for accelerated video playback
              (YUV->RGB color space conversion + video scaling in hardware).

       -nogl  Don't use OpenGL (via GLX  entention)  for  video  scaling.   By
              default  lqtplay tries to use 3D textures to scale RGB frames in
              hardware if DRI is available.

       The usual toolkit options (like -geometry) are accepted too.
