xine is a free multimedia player. It plays back CDs, DVDs, and VCDs. It also decodes multimedia files like AVI, MOV, WMV, and MP3 from local disk drives, and displays multimedia streamed over the Internet.

gxine interprets many of the most common multimedia formats available--and some of the most uncommon formats, too. All those features come in a reusable library (xine-lib) which can easily be embedded in your applications.

What's New in This Release:
Added support for editable menu shortcuts.
Another VO deinterlacer fix - 0.5.7 broke support for tvtime, though pp worked better.
Fixed a typo in configure.ac (affecting Xinerama options).
Upgraded npapi.h from mozilla-dev (Debian). This fixes the browser plugin on 64-bit.
Improved the display of the plugin help text.
Fixed a locking bug which could cause gxine to hang on exit.
Re-marked windows as transient-for (broken in 0.5.7).
Display timestamps in log entries differently (needs xine-lib 1.1.3).
New keymap description handling: untranslated text is stored in the bindings file and unmodified default text is translated for display.
Minor cleanups (configuration file names, g_build_filename etc.).
Use the monitor width rather than the logical screen width for the full-screen toolbar. Fixes a problem in Xinerama side-by-side mode.
Oops. XRandR support got broken ages ago... check for it again.
Unbreak Xinerama check on XFree86 (at least, on 4.3 in Debian sarge).
Improved the toolbar focus handling somewhat.
Fixed F10 in full-screen mode when using combined video/toolbar window in windowed mode.
Added a JS "eject()" function and a key binding entry for it.
Don't use dbus if gnome-screensaver isn't available, and don't provide a default path for it at build time.
HTTP redirect support (playlists etc.) (Ubuntu bug 60007)
Allow --help & --version to work without $DISPLAY being set.
