MPlayer G2 is a redesign/rewrite (from scratch) of the MPlayer 0.90/CVS series.
The main goal of this project is to create a clean modular framework, with

It is designed to be reentrant, so adding thread-safety is easy (just a few
locks around the demuxer layer entry calls).
-NOTE: it's in early stage of development, don't compare to the 0.90 feature set.

A long-term goal is creating a media processing library, to be usable as the
backend of media/movie players, converters, editors, capture tools.
