in reply to Tk Video Widget with Perl

Yes, you need to install:
  • Tcl/Tk, probably best fit could be binaries ActiveTCL from
  • CPAN module Tcl; it will connect to Tcl/Tk; this module requires compiling (its not pure-perl), I can assist you on this
  • CPAN module Tcl::Tk; it will provide a syntax very similar to perl/Tk; this module is pure-perl

All in all, once you'll solve installation task, you'll get much more flexible and larger widget set (compared to perl/Tk)

Also, Tcl::Tk has user's mailing list (tcltk at, so feel free to write there...

    Okay, once I've installed those, how do I install a particular widget?

    "Sanity is the playground of the unimaginative" -Unknown
      if you'll have Tcl::Tk up and running, using Tcl widgets isn't hard (those developed in Tcl or for Tcl).

      To give an idea, look for example at or other examples at that wiki.
      Note that at that example BLTNoteBook is a widget within Tcl/Tk, and initially it is completely unknown to Tcl::Tk perl module. It is a single line of perl code to introduce BLTNoteBook widget to Tcl::Tk
      Tk Video could be very similar, and I will get you an example of concrete code, once you'll get far enough :)
