XMovie, based on Quicktime for Linux and libmpeg2, allows you to watch Quicktime and unencrypted DVD files on a Linux box. The Quicktime decoder reads YUV420, YUV422, JPEG photo, MJPA, RGB, IMA4, ULAW, and PCM codecs. The MPEG decoder reads MPEG-2 video, mp2 audio, mp3 audio, and ac3 audio. Changes: Unencrypted DVD playback, MP2, MP3, ac3, and MPEG-2 video support, parallel MPEG-2 video decompression, and heavy MMX optimization.
