I’ve recently begun learning ruby (coming from a mainly java world), and
so far I really like it. Now I’m trying to write as much as I can using
ruby so I can get a better feel for the language.
So, I have an upcoming project that will require writing a program that
can do some simple video playback. I would need it to be cross platform
(at least Windows and OS X, which rules out the gstreamer and xine
bindings for ruby that I’ve seen), and it would need to be able to play
some common video formats like mpeg-1 and avi.
I would love to write this in ruby, but I have been unable to find
anything that looks like it fits my needs. Does anything like this
exist, or am I stuck using JMF?
