Xjadeo is a cross-platform Free Software video player that displays a video clip synchronized to an external time source (MTC, LTC, or JACK transport). Xjadeo version 0.8.0 just came out and brings a lot of significant changes, most notably:
* openGL display
* video-frame indexing
* built-in UI / context menu
With openGL, video scaling is now performed in hardware, with playback synchronized to the screen's vertical refresh. Video files are now scanned and indexed on load which provides for reliable seeking to video frames for a wide variety of codecs. This also detects broken video files early on. User interaction has been overhauled, most notably by adding a menu that facilitates discovering key bindings.
