VIA's Enhanced Linux Media Player
August 31, 2004
VIA has launched version 3.02 of their enhanced version of the popular Linux Xine media player. The open source project, ingeniously called the VIA enhanced Xine Player (VeXP) is designed to take advantage of the hardware capabilities of the company's CLE266 and CN400 chipsets. Regular readers will know the CLE266 resides on the current crop of Mini-ITX boards, while the CN400 will reside on future EPIA Mini-ITX offerings, such as the imminent EPIA SP boards, and the not-so-imminent Nano-ITX boards. Current CLE266 Mini-ITX boards will benefit from improved MPEG-2 acceleration, while CN400 boards will also have MPEG-4 acceleration. VIA claims the software will cut CPU workload by 50 percent. Let's hope that mplayer also gets the VIA treatment.
VeXP supports many popular file formats, including AVI, ASF, CDDA, DVD, MP3, VCD and RM. Look for VeXP to work with the following Linux distributions: Fedora Core 1, Mandrake 9.2, MontaVista 3.1, Red Flag 4.0, Red Hat 7.3/8.0/9.0, and SuSE 8.1.
