MNG Player is a simple player application for the new MNG (Multiple-image Network Graphics) animation format.

The MNG format takes the popular PNG image format, and uses it as the basis for an animation format. Roughly speaking, MNG is to PNG as Animated GIFs are to ordinary GIFs.

The MNG compression scheme is particularly well-suited for synthetic image sequences, particularly screen-captures. This makes it ideally suited as a replacement for the much less efficient Animation and Graphics codec which are currently used by QuickTime. The compression achieved by MNG for screen-capture sequences is typically a factor of 5 to 10 times better than the Animation codec, with no loss in quality.

Most of the spec is supported, with the following exceptions:
There are issues with colour-matching using sRGB chunks.
Alpha support on JNG images is not complete.

Requirements:
CarbonLib 1.1 or later.
