Dear all,

since DivX is now open source ( i've build a library package
of it wich i hope to submit soon. The problem is that there are two
packages that play MPEG movies known to me : mplayer and XMPS ... the
later is build on SDL ... wich isnt ready yet for NetBSD... I've tried to
compile it based on the FreeBSD one but thats quite hard :(

Is anyone busy on porting SDL allready? Or are there other movie players
for NetBSD ? The mplayer is not useable on non i-386 platforms for it
contains a lot of assembler and is really focused on the i386 linux...
