libquvi: Overview of query media library

NAME

libquvi - Overview of query media library

DESCRIPTION

libquvi is a cross-platform library for parsing flash media stream URLs with C API. The term ``quvi'' is a shorthand for ``query video''.

API documentation

<http://quvi.sourceforge.net/doc/>

Motivation

libquvi originates from the idea of allowing users to view the videos without having to install or use flash. It is a ``workaround'', not an ``alternative'' to flash.
