Hello, in my effort to get a DVD movie player for OS/2 I came
across you web site and
was hearten to think that we (os/2 users) would have such a program.
Not so as I did
not see any reference to OS/2, so I am sending this email letting you
1. know about
us, and 2. letting you know that we might be able to port your program
1. If you know nothing about os/2 you should know that os/2 is an
thats been in use since 1991. It is a very stable, fast, OS, with
a 32bit memory,
and can be run on any of the newer cpu as well as older 386\486 .
2. We do lack some software, as fewer companies write for OS/2, not
is any lack of good software,
3. there are at this time many programers, and devleopers working on
projects one of which is called Odin, which is an attept to port
windose api, dll's
and such to OS/2 . Odin has an exacutable that when run on
certain windows programs
renders an os/2 equivalent.
Let me say I am nither a developer or programer. But last night I
windows version of LiVid and ran it thru the Odin (pe) this gave me a
that might be able to run under OS/2. After clicking on or typing into
the command line
a small program object appeared on my desktop. Actually on the
outline and the
header bar appeared, but the window was not stable, as it would
disappear and reappear
and of course no controls showed.
Would anyone from your group work with me, or an os/2 developer
and find out
what is needed to get this working.
please reply to this email address..
best of luck
ps.. sorry I am referring to the videoLan stand alone player for DVD..
Also Odins' home page is
thank you again
