Overview is a GNUstep port of MPlayerOSX.

Current Version: 0.5 (GitHub fork)

  • Released: May 2, 2005
  • Licensed: GPL2

Overview is a front-end/controller for MPlayer, using its --slave API. It is based off MPlayerOSX and contains changes towards building it on GNUstep.

It supports queuing of media-formats supported by MPlayer in a playlist. The playback window it spawns is that of regular MPlayer.

Thanks to the Internet Archive, its source-code was discovered and fixed up by a new maintainer. Aside from fixes, file-type extension icons were added as well as a new icon in the style of GNUstep.
