then time to tjink about RTFMing a bit.
i also bet, this question is in the FAQ too.

you should check again. that 3000 (really so much?) lines are not the
whole program, it's just the init and uninit code, and the main loop,
full of function calls and the a-v sync correction & control math.
feel free to implement it in fewer lines (i'm trying to do it in
mplayer-g2, with no much success)...

or you do ask my optionion about c++? you'd better not asking that.
