Hi, my friend offered me a freelance job to make an application that can display a video file to a TV while at the same time also displaying a number on top of it. The number is from a queue that can be incremented by pressing a button. So it's like an interactive queuing application. I've got some question about this:
1. Maybe for displaying the queue number, I can use SDL or maybe go pure DX. But what about the one to play the video from the Video-Out to the TV? Is there any LGPL / free API for this? Can't afford a comercial one as of now.
2. What would the approx. time be if I can only work on this project on saturday & sunday?
3. My friend also ask me for the price. How much should I charge for this? I haven't got any clue about this because usually the price have been set for me if I do a freelance (beside my dayjob).
Thanks in advance.
