  • PyCar test build 1.0.0-pre1

    My respect to all.
    I see a lots of great software here in this forum and in the other parts of this site. I really like some of those but the sad thing is that most of them are relying on 3-rd party components which may not be royalty free and not open source at all.
    So I've got a simple frontend which employs only LGPL code under it, including codecs, graphics layer and such. It is really portable, small and simple to customize.
    The typical footprint under linux with all video support can fit into 16Mb flash( including linux, video drivers, sound drivers and frontend itself ).
    Also after I noticed that most of you prefer using Windows I decided to compile my in-car app so that you can run it and tell me what you think.
    Please follow this link to get some basic ideas how it look like( pics were taken from the previous build and may not reflect recent changes )
    http://pymedia.sourceforge.net/pycar/screenshots.html
    Also you can find the downloadable version from that page.

    I appreciate your feedbacks and really want to hear back from you.

    PyCar test build 1.0.0-pre1 installation

    To the message above.
    In case if want to give it a try, here are some details about the installation:
    After you download zip file, you'll need to unzip it to the c:\ drive.
    At the moment it cannot be changed. Sorry.
    Open README file in c:\pycar directory to get more information about features and customization.
    To customize the directories, cache size and other parameters, take a look at the c:\pycar\modules\audio*.cfg file which contains those parameters in XML format. Most of them are self explanatory.

    In case if you want to remove the pycar from your PC, just remove the c:\pycar directory.

    Thank you again,

          very nice.. i'm the same one that has been testing pymedia out for you via email around a month or so back. Did you ever figure out how to overlay an pygame surface over a playing movie?

            Hi !
            Yeah, if you download pydfb and take a look at the tests/overlay_surf_yuv.py. In SDL you could do the same thing.
            Currently you may assume that you can simply blit on that overlay surface.
            I still owe you the pygame interface though...

              ok i'll take a look at that.. so the only way now to overlay is to run the app in frame buffer i take it.

              It would really kick *** to overlay an pygame surface over a playing movie. Thats my stopping point.

              On a side note i played around with pycar and its really nice.. keep up the good work
