This is a Video + Audio player along the lines of mplayer. It's simple yet decent looking. It finds album art for you for music files, generates thumbnails for videos so you can select logaction by thumbnail and more. It accepts file lists on the cmdline ala:

rage file1.mp3 file2.mp3 file3.avi file4.mp4 file5.ogg
rage dvd:/
rage http://www.blah.com/stream

You can also specify subtitle files with -sub:

rage file.mp4 -sub mysubs.srt

And of course you can run it with no arguments:


Which goes into "Browser mode" where Rage will index/list your ~/Videos directory as a library (and subdirectories).

This depends on video engine support to display them, so it may not work. You might have toinstall more codec plugins for Gstreamer. Also Rage will use a srt or sub format file if found, automatically. If the filename is video.mp4 or video.avi, video.mov etc. then Rage looks for video.srt or video.sub and automatically will use it.

If you DND files onto its window, they are added to the playlist. Mouse over the right of the window brings up the playlist. Mouse over the position bar at the bottom, if it's a video, brings up a video thumbnail of that position (it may take a while to generate thumbnails for that video - they are cached).

If you run Rage without arguments at all it goes into "browser" mode where it will index all your media files in "$HOME/Videos" or whatever you have configured your XDG video directory to be. It will flatten out all directories that it recursively scans in this videos director with a header with the directory name and a list of images per video and the filename with extensions removed. It will either generate a series of images to flip as the video thumb or may actually search for a poster file dependig on length of video file (if it is more than 60 minutes long and less than 5 hours and the image ratio is between 4:3 and 4:1 it'll be assumed to be a movie for example). So while it is fetching or generating thumbnails for the first time, be a little patient. They will be cached so they only need to be generated or fetched once (or if the file changes).

Compiling and Installing

Meson is the build system used for this project. For more information please see mesonbuild.com

You will need normal build tooling installed such as a compiler (gcc or clang for example), pkg-config, ninja, any relevant package-dev or package-devel packages if your distribution splits out development headers (e.g. libc6-dev) etc.

Depending on where dependencies (like efl) are installed, you might have to set your PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable like:

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib/pkgconfig

Also note that some distributions like to add extra arch directories to your library locations so you might have to have more like:

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/local/lib64/pkgconfig:/usr/local/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/pkgconfig:/usr/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib64/pkgconfig:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/pkgconfig

You will need to ensure that the destination library directory (e.g. /usr/local/lib is in your /etc/ld.so.conf or /etc/ld.so.conf.d/ files and after installing anything that installs libraries you re-run ldconfig. Please see relevant documentation on ldconfig and ld.so.conf for your distribution.

You might also want to add the destination bin dir to your environment variable PATH (see documentation on your shell PATH variable) such as:

export PATH=/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin

Normal compilation in /usr/local:

meson . build
ninja -C build
sudo ninja -C build install

For meson build generic options:

meson --help

For a list of project specific options supported:

cat meson_options.txt

To set 1 or more project specific options:

meson --prefix=/path/to -Doption=value [-Dother=value2] [...] . build

To display current configuration:

meson configure build

The above will only work after at least the following is done:

meson . build

Quick build help

How to clean out the build and config and start fresh:

rm -rf build

How to make a dist tarball and check its build: (must do it from git tree clone and commit all changes to git first)

ninja -C build dist

How to change prefix:

meson --prefix=/path/to/prefix . build

How to install in a specific destination directory for packaging:

DESTDIR=/path/to/destdir ninja -C build install

How to build with verbose output (full commands run):

ninja -C build -v
