    How difficult/easy will it be to port MPlayer app to S60 devices using Open C?

    Hi,

    I am in need of your suggestions or comments regarding the porting
    of Open Source MPlayer application to the S60 platforms using Open C.

    I want to know the difficulties I may face while doing this.

    Thank You,
    regards,

    I don't have so much comment on MPlayer. What I know is that Harry Li has found some problems when porting Mozilla's NSPR component. See his posting, http://blogs.forum.nokia.com/blog/ha...t-like-mozilla

    The biggest problems are probably going to be:
    1) No standard UI stuff available, you'll have to use native Symbian code or RGA (or possibly OpenGL ES??) for that.

    2) Performance. MPlayer may need some optimisation to run well. It isn't great on Maemo and that has very similar hardware to an N95.

    3) AV Sync. MPlayer does this really well but you may find that there are timing differences on Symbian and you will need to understand how the AV Sync works to fix them.

    4) Symbian Audio. You'll have to use the native Symbian APIs (or maybe RGA) to play the audio. The APIs are quite different from other platforms.
