I am a student working on my final year project.
To start with I need to be able to playback a DivX (or either a MPEG or AVI) file.
I have been trying out various opensource, like OpenDivX by ProjectMayo (now dead) and XViD and many other sources. I cannot get my head around it.
The task is simple (it sound so). Read a media file from disk and play it back on screen.
NO WINDOWS PROGRAMMING. I am working in plane C.
If anyone can help, I would be extremely pleased.
