Projects / KutttPech


KutttPech is a MPEG-player in Java, capable of playing MPEG-1 within your browser without downloading any irritating plug-in. It is specialized in handling live MPEG streams, but can play files just as easely. It plays Layer 2 audio on most browsers with java 1.1/1.2 and on all browsers with 1.3. It can cut P-FRAMES and B-FRAMES if the machine is too slow to handle them, so as to maintain a small lag. It can run outside a browser as an application and is reasonably fast.

    Release Notes: A fast scaling algorithm, an option for viewing in external frame, and a new volume control, fixes for some bugs that slowed parsing down, and a better buffering implementation.

    •  11 Oct 2002 09:27

        Release Notes: All of the known reload bugs were fixed. In the process of doing this, audio was enabled in Netscape 4.x under Windows. KutttPech can now switch between different streams, which is handy for situations with changing bandwidth. Pre-buffering of video/audio is also possible. A scrollbar and a few buttons were implemented. Debugging information like bits/sec, frames/sec, and GOP-size can be displayed. A lot of other weird bugs were also fixed.

          Release Notes: The audio system now automatically detects which audio to use, or if it should use audio at all (currently works on Explorer, but not yet on Netscape 4.x without JAVA 1.3). Audio synchronization was greatly improved, and minor bugs were fixed, some of which improved speed as well as the memory usage.
