Project Description

We need a media Player desktop application that runs under Windows XP pro and Windows 7. The Player will run full screen. The cursor and the Windows taskbar shouldn’t be visible.

The program plays in two zones of the screen on a static image background. The media player loads content in the background, and play it without any pause in between.

In Zone 1 the player will display video files with audio. In Zone 2 the Player will display image files. All content files will be stored locally.

The content to be displayed in each zone will be based on TXT playlists locally stored. The programmer should provide the Client with a sample TXT playlist.

The programmer should indicate the most appropriated technology to be used for developing. The programmer should indicate the most appropriated format, resolution and settings for the videos to be displayed in Zone 1 and settings for the images to be displayed in Zone 2.

The player will keep a log of the content played in Zone 1. The log format will be a ‘CSV Comma Separated Value File’.

The media Player should work stable, without crashes or memory leaks.

The media Player must work steady even on non video accelerated machines. It should be a lightweight application that requires low RAM, low Processor power and low Video rendering capabilities, like this:

- Intel core 2 duo T7250 @ [url removed, login to view] GHz,

- 2 GB RAM,

- Display adapter: 'Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family' or 'NVDIA ION'

The media player should use up to 30% processor and up to [url removed, login to view] memory.

Besides the Player, it is required a small desktop application that checks if the media player is working properly and is able to restart the player or the player PC in order to restore the media player to work properly.

The programmer must have previous and demonstrable experience developing media players.

We will provide a detailed description to the bidders that prove they know how to develop an efficient and lightweight media player.

Thank you.
