Xtheater is a Media Player for linux capable of playing MPEG video and audio
files, network streams, and VCDs, as well as AVI and ASF files. It accompishes
this through the use of libaviplay and
tries to keep things simple and straightforward to provide the simplest,
most stable behavior as possilbe, while at the same time offering a nice
featureset. The latest news and releases are available
This User's guide can be used as a, hopefully, comprehensive guide on how
the program can be used. I have tried to design the program such that it
was pretty much straightforward, and the behavior people grow to expect
from other programs is largely emulated in Xtheater. For example, keyboard
shortcuts from many other programs are supported so that hitting buttons you
have grown used to should do what they did in your other programs.
In particular, users of xine, aviplay, mplayer, and Windows Media Player
have been considered, and most programs that have keyboard shortcuts are
pretty close to these.
