PlayerNX - (PoC) video player for homebrew!


Hi guys!
Many of you have asked me a lot of times to try making a video player. After managing to build the ffmpeg experimental pacman package, i've been working the entire day on a video player.

Plays the MP4 placed at "sdmc:/media/video.mp4". It should automatically stop playback for any found errors, so crashes should not occur.

Audio is still not working (I need to fix some stuff and learn how to use audout service on libnx properly)
The playback is a bit laggy, but it still shows up ok.
Enjoy playing videos from anytime, anywhere!

GitHub repository: https://github.com/XorTroll/PlayerNX
Releases page on GitHub: https://github.com/XorTroll/PlayerNX/releases

Supported video formats: MP4, AVI, FLV, MKV, WMV, 3GP, WEBM

Also, you can pause/resume or stop playback, or even fast forward!
The controls are explained in the NRO.

I also plan to embed this player to NSPower!

Anyways, it work fine and video quality is very good (except fps).
A bit laggy and no sounds, but as you said, it's an early development.
Good luck with improvements.

Can you work with NX Shell dev, to open a selected file passed as an argument? Just a suggestion to save you writing a file browser.
@Joel16 already has plans related to ffmpeg (tagging him because afaik he was planning to add video support to NXShell)

I'm bad to write a portal news, I'll let native english speaker and reporters doing it.
@Chary :)

For a portal news it's too bad there's no sound, but it's a new homebrew release announcement. it merits to keep an eye on it for future updates.
