Sébastien Roy from the TOT project (PixelTango, etc.) at SAT is using
this approach for his project (LightTwist). He's using a bit of PD but
it use mostly OpenSceneGraph for the 3D part and is own C code. But
he's using a shared buffer instead of a FIFO. A FIFO could be to slow
because all the decompress data have to be write and read from the
disk. With the shared buffer the decompress data is written and read in
the memory and he got really good results. But I don't know how he
control Mplayer ? I will ask.
