"LinDVD, a Linux software DVD player developed by InterVideo, provides users with a fully licensed, legal DVD player for use on their Linux platforms."

"The software targets makers of embedded Linux devices such as home entertainment equipment. Presently, InterVideo is negotiating with Linux vendors like Red Hat, SuSe, Caldera Systems, and Corel to bundle the software. While the program isn't an open source, the company plans to publish the program's application programming interfaces (APIs) to promote customization."

"Currently, LinDVD software is offered only to manufacturers for program evaluation and integration. A retail version will debut this quarter."
