Description:

Updates?
========
No updates for four months... Multiple reasons... very tight office timings, family responsibilities and the fact that the project needs a major update in one component (which is a priority + depends on future Qt version + needs a lot of time which I have not presently). In the meantime I have started work on media transcoder during little time I have now; I'll integrate it tightly with SparkleMedia later when it has matured. It will offer a wizard-based interface, transcode using gstreamer and for now only rip audio cd to FLAC, MP3 or Ogg/Vorbis. I should be able to make a release before the end of May. After this feature set is stable, I'll resume work on SparkleMedia.

SparkleMedia
============
Media player-manager application for KDE4 using GStreamer instead of KDE-Phonon.
Presently the application is good only for a simple playlist based media player.
Please check project homepage for details.

Important Known Bugs
====================
* Do NOT mute volume from the applications system tray.




Changelog:

Version 0.3
===========
(*) Redesign of SparkleClassic plugin; it is now the default.
(*) Added preamp to equaliser.
(*) Added command-line processing.
(*) Now volume-mute function is independent of volume.
(-) A number of bugfixes and other optimisations/changes.

Version 0.2
===========
(*) Added support to change audio output device.
(*) Added support to change video output device.
(*) Sparkle plugin: Various fixes.
(*) SparkleClassic plugin: Enabled access to equalizer; various fixes.
(*) Added new sparklemedia application icon along with other icons.
(*) Now random mode can only be "on" or "off".
(*) Completely remove dependency on Phonon.

Version 0.1
===========
(*) First release with support for playback of local media files, visualisations, 10-band equaliser, choice of two user-interface plugins and basic playlist functionality.

Hi
I have compiled it on my PC (mandriva 2009.1) but I can not play any file. I have only an icon in tray, and nothing more, no any window, and playlist. I can not start palying from buttons from this tray icon. When I run this app, console shows:Quote:

It should work properly from second run onwards or in worst case you may have to logout-login to kde... the issue it seems is that kde is not detecting newly installed plugins, so I'll have to look for a way to make kde do that.

If yes, where did you installed it? If not, try selecting a plugin from system tray icon.

You need at least
gstreamer-0_10
gstreamer-0_10-plugins-base
gstreamer-0_10-plugins-good
gstreamer-0_10-plugins-bad

... you must be missing last one (It it matters, it is needed because I'm using playbin2).

...and btw presently svn version is same as 0.2, I still have not committed any new code!

great, now it works :) I had no gstreamer-bad package. Could you put this pacckage in to dependence in cmake?

Now some ideas, colud you add option "open file" "open directory" etc? and some more visualisations :)

Though this dependence is not for building, cmake module has no support for this.

Right click on playlist and select "Add Media..."; you can select file as well as folder.
Visualisation are directly provided by gstreamer. Make sure you have libvisual and libvisual-plugins installed for greater choice.

 Ideas

This is a great application. But some things must go better:

> Collection Management;

> Equalizer Presets;

> Packages for Ubuntu, Fedora and others distributions (RPM, DEB e etc.);

Again, this is a great application. And sorry for my bad english.

 What's wrong with Phonon?

 
 by KAMiKAZOW on: Nov 22 2009

I don't understand why GStreamer instead of Phonon. Phonon is just a wrapper for GStreamer, Xine, or whatever.

Nothing wrong with Phonon, it is extremely easy to use, but it only (*for now*) supports playback of tracks; and this is what I achieve/plan to achieve with GStreamer: Playback + Visualisations + Equalisers + Plans for more effects + Plans for transcoding

It has not been translated yet; in fact it can't even be translated as of now. I will add support in the next release, but even then support will be needed to translate it in ones preferred language.

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
