[directfb-users] Need advice on design implementation
I am developing a kioks-like embedded system. It has to play videos and
show a stock ticker. Due the resource constraints, I want to avoid using
the X server, so I am using dfb now.
Since there will be some GUI stuffs, I implemented a simple UI using
gtk-directfb, including a stock ticker. But then, how should I play the
video? Both mplayer's and vlc's browser plugins use xid for playing the
video on an X window. However, there is no X in my system, and XDirectFB
is just an X server with dfb backend, not suitable for embedded systems.
I tried the basic dfb api before, particularly the video provider
interface. It works fine, but I prefer implementing the stock ticker and
other UI stuffs in gtk for its convenient layout mechanism.
Does anyone have experience on this? Any advice and suggestions are
