About This File
MNGer is media player for MNG videos/animations.
It associates MNG files with the player upon setup, and is a very quick, nice easy way to play MNG videos, and also plays supporting audio files (MP3, M4A, OGG, WAV, AIF) if available
Its simple to setup, configure and simple to use, and works just like any basic Media Player.
After setup either launch the application, or just double click on a MNG file to play.
Launch application and select MNG
Drag and drop MNG file
Open a MNG in Windows Explorer
Open from the command line
'-fullscreen' plays the MNG full screen and exits when MNG is complete
'-fixaspect' attempts to detect video orientation and fix the aspect ratio to 4:3 or 3:4
'-hidemouse' hides the mouse pointer
e.g. mnger.exe c:\mame\snap\1942.mng -fullscreen -fixaspect
For anyone interested MNG is an open source / open license image animation format developed by the same people that developed the PNG image format. It was meant to replace the CompuServe GIF image format that at the time had some people worried about its licensing and is limited to 8 bit color. Time has gone by, MNG never became mainstream along with APNG and GIF is still well alive.
