Hello everybody.

I have a task to get video stream from my IP-cam (running on debian).
I installed VDPAU and mplayer successfully plays & decodes rtsp stream (mplayer was built with live555 library).
But mplayer is really large to get deal with and to put its code into my own project.

So, how can I find any example of simple player that supports hardware decoding of rtsp h264 stream?

Thank you.


You can try to reduce MPlayer size by custom compilation and disabling everything that is not needed. Or try FFmpeg, the player is much smaller than MPlayer.
