One of the best and versatile media players is now available for MorphOS.

VLC is quite good for various types of audio and video streaming from internet.

Discussion on MorphZone is HERE

Download is HERE

Nice.
Regarding OS4 port, recall some screenshot from Andrea showing VLC on OS4 last year, it was not working too well back then though, (alpha alpha version).

A download mirror available here btw:

That port was running under Cygnix, so that its GTK GUI could be ported, but also because of the extra layer of X11 it was too slow to be useful.

a console version should not be so hard to port. by the way, i don't think that another console player is useful at moment.. and i think also we need a lot of other more important software now..
by the way if someone wants some help to port it just ask me

is it just me or are these players just a gloryfied version of multi view???

I mean if multi view had all the data types (exec's) and a full screen mode
wouldnt it be identical ??? play pause plays views all sorts of files?

I mean isnt it just a basic GUI at the end of the day!!

@Varthall

The GUI part could be easily created from scratch using MUI or Reaction. It's not very complex.

@Crumb

I agree, the issue is finding the time to do it really.

Even though VLC is what I'm using on other OS's DVPlayer is greas for AOS 4 and my main movieplayer. If there's something it can't play you can use MPlayer.

It would be nice to have VLC but hey... how much do we need a browser? The day that I can use http://www.blip.se/ and then play yatzy from AOS 4.......

AFAIK multiwiev is not very good for stream type data and it needs overhauling before it is cabable to show video stream.

After that yes.
