  • PyMedia and PyCar Front End

    I recently found a couple of applicaions called PyMedia and Pycar which are made to work under Win and linux. I contacted someone from the website and this is what he told me.


    > Any chance this software could be made for Mac OS X?

    Hi George,
    The software itself will work under Mac OS X. But all the codecs and
    video
    stuff will not( PyMedia ).
    Once somebody can port PyMedia to a Mac OS X, PyCar will work there
    instantly.

    The link for these applications is: http://www.pymedia.org/index.html

    Maybe someone can look this up and see if it can work under OS X.

    Some of the screen shots can be found here: http://www.pymedia.org/pycar/index.html

    looks like you may have found something interesting:-)

    this front end is based off a scripting language called Python, which runs on Windows, Linux, the Unix BSDs, and Mac OSX. The port for Mac OS X is here:
    http://homepages.cwi.nl/~jack/macpython/

    The interface almost looks like MediaCar and FrodoPlayer :-) best part is it is portable between the OSes. just that his class base, PyMedia, needs to have classes that work with OS X's quicktime libary (which are built in to handle OS X's music and video playing)

          I would say it would be great if someone try to port PyMedia over to Mac. It will be real usefull for all Mac users as you can edit/play all the multimedia with ease. And of course PyCar will work there as well.
          I can assist if anyone volunteer.

            What exactly is involved in porting it over? I heard "codecs" but am not sure what that means.

            I couldn't port a codec, I don't think.

              Well. There is a standard C code which compiles under FreeBSD, NetBSD. Linux and Windows. If someone can try to compile it on Mac, to see what's the outcome would be.

                    I have no clue how to do this but am installing the developer's tools on my Mac now. Likelihood of success = 0 but I'll take a shot at it.

                      I found this today.

                      Cocoa and Python.

                        A couple of notes...

                        MacPython is a project from before Mac OS X. Any new Mac comes with an Apple supplied distribution of Python. Just open a terminal and type python and you'll be in the interpreter.

                        Python for Cocoa is pretty interesting (I was already toying around with it earlier today) but be warned that Cocoa is very ObjectiveC-esqe and not very Python-esqe. Even being fairly familiar with both Cocoa and Python it was a bit mind-bending for me.

                        Though, you could get even more bizarre and go with Ruby/Cocoa and really blow your mind :P

                          I used the contact me form on the pymedia site and suggested he contact the guys at ipodderx.com for assistance.
