       lqtplay - simple	quicktime movie	player for X11.

       lqtplay [ options ] file

       lqtplay	just  plays  the given quicktime movie in a window on your X11
       display.	 Sound is played using a OSS dsp device	 or  Alsa  (if	avail-
       able).	Some  info  about the movie and	some other stuff is printed on
       stderr.	No fancy GUI.  The only	interactive element is	that  you  can
       resize the window, and lqtplay will adapt the video size	if support for
       hardware-scaled video is	available.

       lqtplay comes with libquicktime and uses	libquicktime to	read  and  de-
       code  the  movies.   It	is a sample application	and intentionally kept
       simple.	If you want a full-featured  media  player,  have  a  look  at

       -noxv  Don't  use  the  Xvideo extension	for accelerated	video playback
	      (YUV->RGB	color space conversion + video scaling in hardware).

       -nogl  Don't use	OpenGL (via GLX	extension) for video scaling.  By  de-
	      fault  lqtplay  tries  to	use 3D textures	to scale RGB frames in
	      hardware if DRI is available.

	      Don't use	Alsa for audio output.	By default lqtplay  uses  Alsa
	      if it was	available at compile time.

       The usual toolkit options (like -geometry) are accepted too.
