This is early pre-alpha code, so be prepared for issues. Please report any problems.
SummaryA framework for MHEG-5 that includes a working engine compliant to UK 1.06, an XML parser and ASN1 parser, and a GDI renderer.
It is written in C# and runs on .NET 3.5 or above. A BDA TV card that works with DC-DVB is needed to access the broadcast data stream. It can also be used to run saved static dumps of MHEG-5 applications.
It's licensed as a GPL 3 codebase.
Features:ISO MHEG-5 compatibility. XMHEG Decoder. ASN1 Decoder GDI+ Renderer. Hardware accelerated video overlay mixing and re-sizing support. Control DC-DVB as the DSM-CC. 90% + compatibility of UK profile 1.06. Anti-aliased fonts. Partially WorkingLive view ( limited to where DC-DVB works) Planned Future Developments:Persistable Cache. Installer. WPF Renderer. Cleanup of code base to make faster and more stable. Full UK profile 1.06 compatibility. Media Center plugin. Mono (Linux) compatibility. Native DSM-CC CommunityIt is hoped that this project will try to gather some interest in getting a fully working MHEG intrepreter in the near future. MHEG-5 is that standard used in both Freeview and Freesat in the UK, and a working intreperter would be beneficial for a wide audience.
To that end, any developers would be welcome to join the effort. Also a community of users to test and file bugs would accelerate development.
