Mini Audio Applet

Submitted:  Feb 5 2006


Many times I receive an email with an audio attachment, or open a CD containing pictures, audio files...

I like to listen to music with amaroK and I don't want to empty my playlist just to preview an audio file, so now I have those possibilities:

- "Open with" Kaboodle or other simple player (Kmail doesn't let me choose so may be not possible, and I don't like to open a music player just to preview a song).

- Mouse right click - "Action" - "Add to Amarok Playlist" (many "clicks" and I don't want to pollute my playlist, so I don't like this way).

- Mouse right click - "Properties" - "Preview" (too much complicated).

- Mouse right click - "Open in a New Tab" (this is not intuitive and I don't want to open a new tab just to preview a song).

So, I propose this idea for KDE4:

- If I do double click in an audio file in Konqueror (local, remote, http...), in a Kmail audio attachment or in any app there will appear a small applet in the panel called "Playing Audio Files".

- It will show audio file tags (if it has) as "Band" and "Song Title", a pause button, time bar and close option.

- It includes too a button to add the current song to amaroK playlist (or other predetermined player) and the option to empty or not the playlist.

In this way I don't need to open another app or pollute my playlist and it could be usable and intuitive.

The picture is based on the excellent proposal of Eriol for KDE4:
and the "Extender Mockup" of Caaz:

It could be an uniform style for KDE4.

 There needs to be

an audio applet for changing sound devices if there is more than one installed. I have a one for speakers and one for headphones. I know I could get a splitter and just use the one but I am locked in a cage and can't go to the shops.

 mouse over

why not just have the song start playing via a mouse-over? i remember i had KDE doing this once before, but i don't get previews anymore with sound files. that way you don't have to open it out of the email application.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
