Re: [E-devel] Music player API?

Really what I would like to see is you take xinelib and add music only api
to emotion... that would be nice :)

Which library would you suggest for playing ogg and mp3 files? Perhaps
something that fits well into E17 libs.

So is it unpossible to use current Emotion to play a music file without
opening a video window?

In the first step I plan only audio playback in my application. But
later I need also video playback. Because of this a dependency to xine
or gstreamer isn't a problem.
