                       XingPlay v1.1 by Triumph
                       ------------------------

What is XingPlay?
-----------------
XingPlay  is  the  fastest  XING-style  Mpeg  player available for the
Amiga.   In order to be fast, it cuts a lot of corners.  For instance,
there  is  no  error  checking  on the file, it has better be correct!
Also,  the  files  must  be  in  so called Xing-Mpeg format, ie.  only
I-frames and a resolution of 160x120.

The  previous  version  of  XingPlay  was  released  as  "unsupported"
software.   Now  that  I  have  got  some  more time on my hands, I've
decided  to  fix  the worst bugs and maybe add a feature or two.  Stay
tuned for further improvements...


What's hot...
-------------

   * the fastest Xing-Mpeg player available for the Amiga!

   * supports Cybergraphics with custom made render routines
     for all 16 and 32 bit modes.

   * very fast 2x2 AGA HAM8 mode.

   * extremely fast GREY modes.

   * Works on ECS based machines in 16 color grey mode.

   * double buffering in all modes.

   * loads entire Mpeg at once - no jerking.

   * animation can be looped.


Requirements
------------
- An amiga :-)
- A 68020 processor or better
- OS 3.0+ is nice, but it has been reported to work on 2.0 systems

There  you'll  find  cool  information  about  other  projects, my own
homepage  and  the like.  Remember to use a cool browser that supports
frames, or it'll be a waste of time!


Legal stuff
-----------
XingPlay  is  released  as freeware.  Use it as you wish.  This readme
file must always accompany the executable.
