So thers isn't a gui?. I could image you open this like a kindlet. Then browse for a file..
Anyway. How can we convert our video so it can play on this. Also Does sound work?
This is just the beginning. No sound yet. I have a video filter program for converting raw output from other sources to the format needed for this gmplay program, but it needs more features and more testing. And most raw video needs spatiotemporal smoothing filters to make it more eink-compatible.
There is no GUI yet. I am just "planting seeds" here, as mentioned in the second post above. Other people are working at the GUI level at this time. This can probably be integrated with a kindlet by passing request messages from the kindlet to native mode program such as gmplay, similar to how the K5 launcher menu works. Also, I have native mode GUI code in the works, which talks directly to the framebuffer and input event devices (keyboards and touchscreen).
The kindles can already play streaming sound using built-in programs. We just need to integrate that with code from my gmplay program, and add some audio/video sync code.
It is all just a matter of time -- LOTS of time...
