As most of you probably noted, there was no update since long to this project. Due to the fact, that Warpvision was mostly a GUI to MPlayer, we looked for alternatives. We found SMplayer to be a good candidate to port, as it's QT based. We used the last QT 3 version of SMplayer and ported it over to OS/2; eCS. You can get the smplayer at netlabs ftp.

WarpVision? GUI is powerful video/audio player for the OS/2 operating system. It also supports eComStation 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 and higher
