Just now i checked with IPP v6.1 update 6 (30 Jul 2010),
simple_player.exe -vdx test.mpg
By using above mentioned command everything wasworking fine. Even it was working on other IPP 6.1 releases.
No such makefile in the sample code.
You can check buildem64.sh file, in the following line:
for source in core/* codec/* io/* pipeline/* application/*
change it to:
for source in core/* codec/* io/* pipeline/* application/simple_player
It will only build simpleplayer application. But I think this may not help reduce the building time, as most of time in the sample code are used to build the UMC libraries, which simple player application uses.
