Hi everyone,

I'd like to present an open-source project I made for use in my
company's projects: Theora Playback Library
website: http://libtheoraplayer.sourceforge.net

It's a multi-threaded library that decodes theora videos, decoding
frames in advance (precaching), decodes any syncs audio and provides a
very fast YUV->RGB conversion.
One of the most important features is that it's platform independent,
meaning you can use it as simply with OpenGL, DirectX, SDL, X11 etc..
and reproduce audio in your audio library of choice (OpenAL,
DirectSound, FMOD...)

Check it out, currently there is a windows SDK available (Linux and
mac ports are under way), hop to the project forum if you have any
questions. Hope you like it!
