AALIB is fully open-source software and is multi-platform. Many
multimedia software now supports AALIB as its presentation layer (my
favorite is aaxine).
Runs on all *nix (AFAIK) and DOS.
I'm frequently running aaxine on a terminal emulator (one day I'll try
to hook a VT100 to my Linux box).
It's a bit perverse but you can actually watch VCD/DVD movies on a VT100!!!
Takes a bit of getting used too though, and you'd have to watch it
from a distance...
