The quvi project parses media stream URLs for Internet applications that would otherwise have to use adobe flash multimedia platform to access the media streams. Typical examples of this are different media hosts, such as YouTube, for videos that utilize this platform to deliver the media content.
The project consists of the following components:
The support scripts written in Lua that libquvi(3) calls to parse the media stream properties.
The library with the C API for parsing the media stream properties.
The silly suite to access the flash media stream properties. It contains the quvi(1) command line tool.
This project does not aim to provide a working alternative to the flash technology but attempts to work around the flash technology. See here for available alternatives.
- 0.9 and later
- 0.4 series
0.4 is the current stable. 0.9 is the current unstable.
- Long-term goals
Maintain the 0.4 series. Develop the 0.9 series which will ultimately graduate as the next stable (1.0) replacing the 0.4 series.
At this time, only the C API reference documentation is available for the 0.9 series.
Each repository contains the maint, the next and the master branches. See the contrib page for more information about the existing branches.
|The repositories contain the skeleton code only, this means you need to run bootstrap.sh after you have cloned the repository; refer to their corresponding README files|
|quvi-np.git holds misc. files related to the quvi project, including this website|
|github serves as a secondary depot|
Report bugs to the quvi-devel mailing list where the development and the maintenance is primarily done. You do not have to be subscribed to the list to send a message there. In the bug report, include:
The version of libquvi(3), libquvi-scripts(7) and quvi(1)
How to reproduce the bug
The exact text that was printed out (e.g. if a crash)
Anything else you think is relevant
See also the contributor guidelines, if you have written a patch.
Each component comes with manpages which are installed by default.
$ man 7 libquvi-scripts $ man 3 libquvi $ man 1 quvi
Both 0.4 and 0.9 can be found online and downloaded (see Official releases). If you are planning to generate the documentation from the source code, see the README file for more information.
