Hi guys, I'm currently making Space Invaders like game in C++ and SDL. And I thought it would be nice to make cinematics intro with something like Premiere Pro or etc. So can you recommend me some library to work with SDL to load video files and cinematics into my game? Thank you smile.png

Never used any, so =/

 

Did you look up Theora? Though this is exclusively for OGV videos, but I assume you have control over the format your game uses, right? =P There's WebM too (which is what YouTube will try to use when Flash is disabled). Yes, those two are specific formats, but for your case I suppose it'll do the job. The important part is that those two are free =D

 

Also, those libraries are generic, i.e. you'll need to decode the video (by calling them) and then use the decoded data with SDL on your own (in the case of SDL2 a streaming texture may be a good idea).


Don't pay much attention to "the hedgehog" in my nick, it's just because "Sik" was already taken =/ By the way, Sik is pronounced like seek, not like sick.
