Video outputs

2.2. Video outputs

Video outputs are the modules that enable the support of some systems to display the video on your screen.

2.2.1. x11

default: enabled

For Unix with X11 servers only

This is the basic x11 video output. It only requires a working X11 server. You will need xlibs headers to compile it (xlibs-dev package on Debian systems).

2.2.2. xvideo

default: enabled

For GNU/Linux only

It requires an xvideo compliant graphic card (it is the case for nearly all modern cards). It uses hardware acceleration for YUV transformation and rescaling.

2.2.3. sdl

default: enabled

This video output uses sdl libraries. You need at least version 1.1.6 of this libraries.

You may indicate the path to the sdl-config program with the --with-sdl-config-path=PATH switch, when running the configre script.

2.2.4. directx

default: enabled on win32

For Windows only

This video output uses Microsoft Direct X libraries. It is recommended for the win32 port.

You may indicate the path to directX libraries and headers with the --with-directx=PATH switch, when running the configure script.

2.2.5. wingdi

default: enabled on win32

For Windows only

This video output uses GDI. It is designed for users who don't have Direct X, but the perfs are very low. If you have DirectX, do not use it.

2.2.6. fb

default: enabled on GNU/Linux

For GNU/Linux only

This is the frame buffer video output. It requires that your kernel was compiled with frame buffer support.

2.2.7. glide

default: disabled

This video output uses Glide libraries (hardware acceleration for 3Dfx cards).

You may indicate the path to the library with the --with-glide=PATH configure option.

2.2.8. mga

default: disabled

For GNU/Linux only

This module provides hardware acceleration for Matrox cards under GNU/Linux.

2.2.9. ggi

default: disabled

2.2.10. aa

default: disabled

This is the ASCII Art Video Output. This video output uses the aalib library to display video through ASCII art. It requires aalib headers (aalib1-dev package under Debian GNU/Linux) to compile.

2.2.11. svgalib

default: disabled

For GNU/Linux only

This is a video output for the SVGAlib library.

2.2.12. qte

default: disabled

For iPaq only

This is a video output for QT Embedded, an iPaq-specifiq graphical library .
