this sounds great! i hope it gets ported to the Mac osX. Quicktime X is a crime agents Mac users.

Thanks for the comments. Porting to OSX is probably easier than to Windows, albeit I lack an OSX box to do it. The program will first need to gather popularity under linux before a port is done.
I have now uploaded the CMake aid files that were missing in the original release.

As im sure you know, ALOT of commercials, visual effects, 3d animation / motion graphics are made using a Mac. The same jackass responsible for FCPX imploding is now head of Quicktime, so your tool is GREATLY needed.

I think Adobe will be moving in this direction with the acquisition of Iridas. Iridas had a great app called Framecycler but was REALY expensive, and geared for film and highend users. I dont see adobe main streaming it, they are more interested in Iridas color correction tech thats in SpeedGrade.

The features sound nice. I'm currently using djv viewer (http://djv.sourceforge.net/) and even though it's great, it will probably never be updated, so I wouldn't mind trying something new especially when it's this feature packed.
Any possibilities of an RPM?

It will probably be disted as a self installer using InstallJammer. However first a zip file will be in order. I still have too much work to do.

Ok, thanks for clarifying.
Also, is it just me or this thread is not visible in the main cgnews forum? I can only reach it through my email...

I can see the thread just fine. A new piece of news. I've uploaded a tar.gz file with all the libraries and a compiled mrViewer for x64.

Very nice. But I tried the .exe and it there was just a message which told me that the application is not compatible with my system (win7 x64). Is it supposed to work on win7 x64?

oops noticed the "linux" in the filename. Was hoping though because of the ".exe" file.
