 Easy playlist access

 
 by RGBkde on: Aug 10 2009
 
Score 50%

Suggestion: add a menu that shows all the playlist in a given location so you click on one of them, the previous playlist is replaced by the new one and the music starts. Something like this idea in kde's brainstorm forum:
http://forum.kde.org/brainstorm.php?mode=idea&i=62605
What do you think?

Thanks for link. :-)
Interesting idea, but I'm not sure if it really fits into Mini Player philosophy, this could be done as separated applet. By the way, starting from KDE 4.4 play lists will be most probably available through data engines (done as part of Media Center work).

True, sometimes I think that they do too much. :-D
But it is better than doing not enough.

 Video not working...Dolphin?

 
 by PsycoDwarf on: Oct 9 2009

With your plasmoid I get only audio and no video. However, Dolphin's mini player for video preview works properly:

http://www.imagebam.com/image/9fbf5951328362/

Could you please take a look at the code of Dolphin's widget?

svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/tags/KDE/4.3.2/kdebase/apps/dolphin/src/panels/information/

The files you should look for are phononwidget.cpp and phononwidget.h. Thanks in advance!

The problem exists with video on desktop or in dialog?

In case of desktop it was recently confirmed that it will never work there (on Graphics View) with Phonon and it works for GStreamer only because of ugly and slow hack...

In case of problems with dialog I need more information, mostly KDE version, Phonon backend and distribution.

 Flac support

Can you add support for flac format?

Supported formats depends on Phonon backend, if it supports it (for example can be played in Dragon Player) then they should be usable also here (but not necessary shown in file open dialog).

 Now playing funny behavior

 
 by thevladsoft on: Jun 20 2010
 
Score 50%

Hi, I know the proyect is stopped right now, but I wanted to report a weird behavior on kubuntu lucid:

If i have now-playing on the desktop and amarok runing, adding this plasmoid will do what it must, and I can play music with it while controling amarok with now-playing. (both in the same time, kde has progressed a lot, I remember when that was not possible without some fighting)

But if I close amarok, now-playing will pass to control the mini-player playlist, and never control amarok again until I restart kde, even if I close the mini-player plasmoid and start amarok (in that case now-playing won't control either)

I think it must be a dbus thing, but I'm only starting to get familiarized with kde4 (really waited for it to be stable), so cant solve it myself. Not big problem for me because love this plasmoid, it allows me to quickly start play some music in an old machine, and only use amarok for some heavy music playing.

Yes, the reason for this behavior is D-Bus service.
For now it can be only disabled changing source code of file MiniPlayerApplet.cpp by removing or commenting out these lines:
QDBusConnection dbus = QDBusConnection::sessionBus();
dbus.registerService("org.mpris.PlasmaMiniPlayerApplet");
dbus.registerObject("/PlasmaMiniPlayerApplet", this);

It's currently suspended until there will be working solution, Phonon was never reliable when using it with Graphics View (which is the only sensible way to do it in Plasma) and new Qt multimedia widgets weren't integrated into Qt 4.7 but lives in Mobility package and I couldn't find any information how and if it is possible to use it with CMake (I've tried this standalone Graphics View application using Qt build system and it works very good, probably using GStreamer internally).
I'll try again with Phonon when I'll get 4.6 packages (I've broken rpm database and soon I will do clean install) but most probably it will fail again or will require many work and will give not satisfying results...
Also I'll try again with that new multimedia kit from Mobility package... It was very sad that they removed it from main Qt package before final release. :-/

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.
