There is a simple WebM player with support of VP8/VP9 video and Vorbis/Opus audio implemnted, see cmd/webm-player. To get videos to play you can use youtube-dl tool that is very convenient. It supports all the formats that are in WebM container, the player woudl automatically find video andaudio streams in a single file or in both (only video + only audio), see usage examples below.
Install deps (demo app)

$ brew install libvpx # >= 1.6 $ brew install libogg libvorbis opus portaudio # (or use your package manager) $ go get github.com/xlab/libvpx-go/cmd/webm-player $ webm-player -h A simple WebM player with support of VP8/VP9 video and Vorbis/Opus audio. Version: v1.0rc1 Usage: webm-player <file1.webm> [file2.webm]
For Linux (e.g. Debian Sid):
$ apt-get install libvpx-dev libogg-dev libvorbis-dev libopus-dev portaudio19-dev $ go get github.com/xlab/libvpx-go/cmd/webm-player
There is a list of libraries used to build this app:
- go-gl/glfw — Go bindings for multi-platform library for OpenGL, OpenGL ES and Vulkan development, used here to init the GL context, window and handle the input events;
- golang-ui/nuklear — Go bindings for nuklear.h — a small ANSI C GUI library, used here to build the GUI layout, display the video frame as image, handle events sent by GLFW;
- ebml-go/ebml — a pure Go implementation of an EBML decoder (by Jorge Acereda Macia);
- ebml-go/webm — a pure Go implementation of a parser, reader and seeker for WebM container, uses EBML to decode the WebM metadata (by Jorge Acereda Macia);
- libvpx — Go bindings for libvpx-1.6.0, the WebM Project VP8/VP9 codec implementation;
- vorbis — Go bindings for OggVorbis implementation by the Xiph.Org Foundation;
- opus — Go bindings for Opus implementation by the Xiph.Org Foundation;
- portaudio — Go bindings for PortAudio, a free, cross-platform, open-source, audio I/O library.
Please keep in mind that this actually is a VP8/VP9 decoding demo, yet though it does audio decoding well too. Video frames are converted to RGBA using a software decoder (a function), moving that to GPU would give it a boost for 720p+ resolutions, but this is left as an excercise for you, pull requests are welcome. Also audio synchronisation is poor, I invested a couple of hours but I'm lazy to get it done right. Also no pause button, sorry.

Does it support rick roll?
Yes, it does.
