The OSP Project has adopted the open-source Xuggle video engine to read and write video clips using Java. The Xuggle engine is composed of two main components; a set of Java jar files, and a set of native shared libraries (.dll files on Windows, .so files on Linux, or .dylib files on Mac). Although the Xuggle engine is installed automatically when the Tracker video analysis and modeling tool is installed, other OSP programs, such as Easy Java Simulations, do not automatically install Xuggle.  The Xuggle installers available here install the necessary files for Xuggle version 3.4.

Note: Tracker users do not need to use the Xuggle installers because Tracker automatically installs the Xuggle video engine.  

The OSP Xuggle installers are available on Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.6 of Java (JRE).
