schweini has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:


does anybody know whether there's something like a "video" widget? if possible, multi-platform.

I think Wx might support something like that via incorporating a html page (totally not sure, though).

this would really save my ass,

    What exactly do you mean here by "video"? A generic canvas widget to draw on? Do you want to paint bitmaps? Is it actually a widget to replay a video sequence? Or something entirely else? The reference to a HTML page with Wx confuses me.

    Makeshifts last the longest.

      you're right - i have to clarify:

      i guess i'm kinda looking for a "media player control" like widget. i simply have to play a video-file inside my Tk-app. i was wondering about that html-thing, because if there's something like a "mozilla html viewer"/"gecko" widget flying around, i could use mozilla's plugins to play that video, which would seriously rock because of its portability.

      i actually read thru that TPJ article mentioned above before posting, but i don't see how that could help me with simply playing a local video-file.

      hope somebody can help (i really, really don't want to do this thing in VisBas)
