I'm trying to research ways of getting good mpeg playback (muxed mpeg 1 & 2) in Jitter. Obviously, jit.qt.movie isn't going to do it, so perhaps an external might cut it. I'm not experienced enough to wrangle an external that does this myself, but I need to understand how such an external might operate!
On Windows, at least, windows media player plays mpeg MUCH better than QT movie player. Jumping frames in the player is actually possible - in QT, it's very chunky, even on a fast machine. Would a jit.dx.movie player - using dx to create jitter matrices, rather than QT, even be possible? I know c74 has no intention of doing so, but a project I'm working on might require making a rudimentary object of that sort.
If anyone has any thoughts on how this might work, let me know!
If there are any good resources (google searches on mpeg are extremely cluttered) that can help me understand how one could overcome mpeg compression for realtime manipulation, that would be most helpful...
