Mplayer focuses on low latency displaying by avoiding caching and is therefore perfectly suited to display live video streams from Elphel cameras.
Usage with the Cameras
Mplayer consists of 2 applications:
MPlayer allows viewing of multicast / unicast stream from the camera.
MEncoder allows live transcoding/dumping of the cameras videostream.
We do not maintain official binary releases.
But other places might offer binaries for a variety of operating systems.
Careful: The Ubuntu universe package of mplayer is outdated and not recommended.
