Play Control

   1.2.1  

Plasmoid Script

Score 71%
Play Control

Version Control:  Link
Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  537
Submitted:  Aug 14 2011
Updated:  Feb 9 2014

Description:

This is a tiny plasmoid that can control media players using the mpris DBus API (including some workarounds for broken media players). With this you can assign global hotkeys for media player actions (toggle play/pause, next song, previous song, stop, ...) and the shortcuts will control whichever media player is currently running. If there are several media players running at the same time you can choose the one you want to control from a list.

For VLC users:
You might have to enable the D-Bus interface before you can use this plasmoid. You can do so under Tools -> Preferences (Show settings: All) -> Interface -> Control interfaces -> D-Bus control interface




Changelog:

1.2.1
NEW: Web socket server supports SSL/TLS (wss://) so it can be used on https web pages.
NEW: Web socket server logfile
Fix icons sometimes not going away after a player exists (and resolved possible ref loop)

1.2.0
NEW: Web socket server to which web apps can connect. Currently only supported by http://greattuneplayer.jit.su/ (also written by me). A browser plugin that adds this feature to more sites might follow later.

1.1.0
NEW: Configure a non-dbus player controlled via shell commands.

1.0.5
handle dbus errors more gracefully
layout improvements

1.0.4
Support for version 2 of the mpris API.
Automatically change selection to the last used player. This means if no player is playing and a player starts playing (e.g. you clicked play in the said player) the selection changes to this player.

1.0.3
Seeking support
Fixed strange crash when refreshing player list

1.0.2
Better workaround for play/pause in VLC
Nice context menu

I'ts not meant to be used in the panel. If you want to use it like that you have to adapt the code yourself. ;)

Is MPD player supported? If no, can you add support for it?

If this MPD player supports the mpris D-Bus API then it's supported. What does `qdbus org.mpris.*` say on your system? I won't add any other methods than D-Bus, because that's all I use.

It returns empty, so mpd don't have DBUS support. I have found another plasmoid for control mpd: http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?action=content&content=140412

How does it not work? What is the error message? With which media player do you use it?

 Support for vertical panels/

 
 by bastafidli on: May 1 2012

Awesome widget and I especially like it now when the buttons are small enough to be displayed directly in the panel. Thank you so much! Would it be possible to support also vertical panels so that the buttons can be stacked vertically above each other?

Yes, it would be be _possible_. But I won't implement this because I don't use it in the panel at all. If you want this feature you have to implement it yourself. :)

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
