       pia - play media files

       pia [ options ] movie

       pia is a small X11 tool which playes movie files.

       pia understands the usual toolkit options (-geometry + friends).  Additional options are:

       -h     display help text

       -v     be verbose.

       -debug enable debug messages.

       -dsp <dev>
	      Use OSS device <dev> for sound.

       -noxv  Disable Xvideo extention.

       -nogl  Disable OpenGL.

	      Don't play sound.

	      Don't play video.

       -slow n
	      Slowdown	video  playback  by  factor n.	n=2 doubles playback time, ...	This also
	      turns off audio playback.

       Main purpose of this utility is to playback  movie  files  recorded  by	xawtv,	motv  and
       streamer.   It  should  be able to playback every AVI or QuickTime movie written by one of
       the mentioned utilites.	Feel free to submit a bug report if this doesn't  work	for  some

       pia  uses  libquicktime	to  decode quicktime movies, thus it should be able to decode and
       playback all movies with codecs supported by libquicktime.

       AVI support is very limited.  Video: uncompressed RGB data (15 and 24 bpp)  and	mjpeg  is
       supported.  Audio: only uncompressed PCM data works.

       WAV files are playable too, with the same limitation like AVI audio: only uncompressed PCM
