What works

Video and sound playback with the common controlls (play, stop, pause, jump forwards and backwards.

What does not

OpenGL: no controls are drawn - all messed up
DirectX audio output: works somehow - seems to use up to much CPU time on my machine to play proper.
Fullscreen is too slow. However, the linux port of vlc barely works on my system due to slow cpu. I guess this is only a matter of my old cpu.


What was not tested

Everything else.
