       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 or Alsa (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 gstreamer.


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

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

              Don't  use Alsa for audio output.  By default lqtplay uses Alsa if it was available
              at compile time.

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