libmpeg2 is a free library for decoding mpeg-2 and mpeg-1 video streams. Its main goals are:
* Conformance - libmpeg2 can decode all mpeg streams that conform to certain restrictions: "constrained parameters" for mpeg-1, and "main profile" for mpeg-2. * Speed - With typical video streams as found on DVD's, and doing only decoding with no display, you should get about 110 fps on a PIII/666, or 150 fps on an Athlon/950. This is less than 20 cycles per output pixel. * Portability - most of the code is in C; even platform-specific optimizations we always have a generic C routine to fall back on. This should be portable to all architectures. * Reuseability - we do not want libmpeg2 to include any project-specific code, but it should still include enough features to be used by very diverse projects.
