About

A Haskell FFI binding to xine-lib, a multimedia playback engine.

Getting

Dependencies

Building

Using cabal-install, do

cd hxine
cabal install

Usage

To play an audio file, simply do:

> import qualified Xine
> main = do
>     h <- Xine.open
>     sid <- Xine.openStream h "track.ogg"
>     Xine.play h sid

Note that Xine defaults to auto-detecting audio and video drivers.

To configure xine before using it, for example to play video files, use openWith and supply a XineConf value:

> import qualified Xine
> main = do
>     h <- Xine.openWith defaultConf { visualType = X11 }
>     sid <- Xine.openStream h "video.ogm"
>     Xine.play h sid

See the API documentation (produced by cabal haddock) for more information.

If you wish to implement your own higher-level interface to xine-lib, you may use the low-level FFI binding by

> import Xine.Foreign
