Stream Player is a simple player for Internet streams. For playback it uses Phonon.
The Plasmoid remembers the volume for each stream. To change the volume for a stream, use the mousewheel over play/pause button.

Xine backend:
- has sometimes problems whith some streams
- shows the best stream information

To reduce buffering problem you can modify the "~/.config/kde.org/Phonon-Xine.xine.conf" file.
ADD the following lines or set a low buffer number if the lines already exist. The lowest buffer size in my case is 4.

# numeric, default: 230

GStreamer backend:
- backend komunication to the plasmoid is not good
- plays allmost all streams
- no stream information

VLC backend
- best stream suport
- shows some stream information

How to install:

Extract the archive, change to the extracted folder and type

mkdir build && cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` ..
make install (as root)



-Fixed problem saving stream list to a config file

-Changed saving stream list to a config file
-Fixed crashing plasma-desktop

-Fixed a bug in streaminfo layout

-Added a streaminfo
-Fixed some bugs

-Fixed compiling problem.

-Added middle mouse button click on play/pause button for mute.
-Added a list of streams to the right button menu.
-Added the possibility to choose a stream with the wheel. Use wheel over the stream name.

-Added customizable layout. Now it is possible to optimize the layout for the panel.
-Added a default stream.

-Fixed problem with stopping stream.

 Great Plasmoid

 by aray on: Sep 14 2010
Score 50%

Many thanks to the developer for this plasmoid. Actually I was just searching for this kind of plasmoid.

This is working good at my system. Was able to add stream, increase/decrease volume by scrolling. Stations are playing well.

Just a few minor suggestions for you to kindly consider :
a) On my system (KDE 4.5.1/Kubuntu 10.10 beta), the widget when added on kde panel looks like positioned a little at the lower half of the panel; thus making the icons (play, forward, backward), lower half cut down. Only if I make the panel bigger then it fits.

I am not sure whether this is designed for panel or not. If not, then I think, we can have it in panel easily with a little bit of space adjustment.

b) The volume increase/decrease is working only if I scroll over the play button. Can we make it work with a little more radius? That means if scrolled somewhere around the play button then also it can work.

c) Like the volume scrolling, can we also expect similar feature for stations? That means scrolling over the stations should roll the station names.

d) You may think of adding some pre-defined stations to the script so that one can start right-away upon installing.

The above were just my suggestions. This is already an excellent plasmoid and I am sure will be liked by many. No need to load a full player for playing streaming music.

I am glad to read, that the plasmoid is useful for you.

This is the first release of the plasmoid. There maybe many bugs, and many features are not jet implemented.

a)The plasmoid is designed for the Desktop. I will implement a panel optimization in one of the next versions. For the panel there will be only two buttons (play and forward). The station name will be shown in a pop-up while changing the station ore on mouse over the plasmoid.

b)In the panel version the volume changing will work all over the plasmoid.

c)Do you mean change the Station (forward, backward), ore roll the name of the station if it is to long to display it at once? If you mean to roll the Name, i can imagine to write an automatically roll.

d)If you have interesting streams, suggest some.

I hope, i will have time to improve the plasmoid.

Thanks 1Slarti1 for your response.

Yes being the first release, this plasmoid is already working great for me.

About c) I actually meant changing the station - forward backword but the second option that you have written is also very useful.

In fact I was about to suggest that if we can show the song name, artist / stream details as a scroller that will be great.

If we have to decide one from the above options, I would then go for showing the stream details as a scroller because in any case we can forward/backward station by pop-up (when you implement that feature later).

About d) I generally like some local stations, which I have already added.

Thanks again for such a great plasmoid.

 Stopping the streaming music.

 by aray on: Sep 14 2010

Once I start a stream, I am finding it difficult to stop the stream.

The Play button may be made into a play/stop toggle button, so that clicking on the stop button allows the user to stop the music.

Normally the Play button should toggle into a Pause button, if the stream starts playing. If the Play button doesn't toggle, then phonon doesn't send the playing signal. What phonon backend are you using? I'm using the Xine backend.

I am also using Phonon Xine backend.

When I am clicking the play for the first time, it starts playing - this is correct. But then if I press the play button again then it restarts the current stations.

I have not tested this on desktop. I am running the plasmoid on Panel as mentioned earlier. Is this may be the cause of the problem?

I run the command

cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` ..

and it says the following:

CMake Error at /usr/local/share/cmake-2.8/Modules/FindKDE4.cmake:98 (MESSAGE):
ERROR: cmake/modules/FindKDE4Internal.cmake not found in
Call Stack (most recent call first):

What should I do solve this problem?

If you install the kdelibs5-dev package, then it should work.

sudo apt-get install kdelibs5-dev

Thank you, it worked! The Plasmoid compiled without a problem!
But when I added it to panel and tried to customize it caused a plasma segmentation fault, I rebooted, removed the plasmoid, and added it again, and it didn't cause the plasma fall anymore.
So then I added 19 streams in it that woked in SimpleStream Plasmoid, that I used to use in KDE 4.4, and it is not maintained now, it doesn't play them and it doesn't turn the channel!

There is a feature request for you
It Will be cool if I could choose the streams not only with the buttons, but when I press the right mouse button on the plasmoid I could see the list of stations and choose the stream I want to hear.
So I suggest to make a station list in right-mouse menu to faster and easier navigate.
What do you think about it?
The same thing was in SimpleStream Plasmoid, so you can use it's source code

Thanks for adding the requested features.

Will it be possible to add the record feature also to this great plasmoid?

I think that will be very useful.

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.
