Its Qt GUI has been discontinued a long time ago (too bad). And the GPL 
nature of VLC might scare some companies. Otherwise it's indeed the best 
for that.

Too bad we didn't push the playback feature of DrDivX so much and didn't 
end up with a live playback (due to SDL failing to be integrated in a 
GUI). The other plan we have for the future is to use Qt's OpenGL 
component to display the video. Otherwise every picture displayed has to 
be converted to RGB32 :( and has weak hardware acceleration.

Anyway, good luck with this project.
