No problem.

Sometimes that happens to me too. It's a bug i'm aware of but i haven't been able to correct it yet.
For that and other reasons i'm experimenting VLC instead of MPlayer, since the VLC library is more mature and stable.

 Problems with setuptools

I'm having troubles with setuptools.

I get this:

<----- Install dependencies ----->
setuptools (required) - Missing!


But I do have setuptools installed: http://chakra-project.org/packages/pkg-ls.php?package=setuptools-0.6c11-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz&subdir=platform-testing/x86_64

Hello,

The dependency checking of setuptools (like some others) was inaccurate.
I've fixed that in the newest revision (svn).

But do you have any problems running the setup.py script?

Thanks for taking time to help. :)

I forgot! It was Chakra's fault. Python 2.7 was upgraded, but setuptools hadn't yet been compiled against it. I'm deeply sorry. It's now fixed. Thanks a lot for your help.

I checked and downloading this video seems to work ok, allthough the progress bar doesnt show.

I found this bug: https://trac.videolan.org/vlc/ticket/3982

so I thought its a vlc issue, however I tried with mplayer but still no luck =(

Hello,

Thank you for your appreciation.
Try changing your user agent in VLC, it worked for me.

How-to:
In preferences set the detailed view and go to:
input and codecs->access modules->HTTP(S)
And in the 'user agent' box put this:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.1.1) Gecko/20090718 IceCat/3.5.3


Also you said the progress bar didn't show? the CLI progress bar?

Hey,
thats a neat trick! Thnx!

I can now playback the file, although vimeo seems to stream at really low speeds here and I get lots of freezes.

But I guess this is not a WatchVideo issue, so thnx again!

 Progress Bar

I forgot to mention in my previous comment, I was earlier talking about the progress bar in the gui, after you run watchvideo and enter a link to download from vimeo.
The file starts to download but the progress bar stays at 0% and speed also at 0kbps but I can see from my network monitor that the file is downloading as should.

And it only happens with Vimeo? That's strange.
Well in the new version (not yet released) i have no problems.
I plan to release the new version soon.

Where did you try to play the video? directly in VLC? or through WatchVideo?
If you tried in VLC and the sound didn't work, that's some issue with VLC.

i try directly in vlc
In watchvideo i cant find hwo to do that.
I search a video and when i click on it it proposes to download it. If i click play, nothing happens in the player window.

May be i did nt understand very well how the program works.
I click on search browser but nothing happens too. I see a message not supported messages in the status bar. I tried with firefox and with a video page open.

i will try to investigate the program functionality a little better, if you could help a little i'd appreciate it

Thanks

About your sound problem, if you're using VLC directly it's a problem related to VLC, so i can't do anything about it. :(

When you use the search you can either play (by double-clicking the item), download or copy the link to the page. These last two are accessible by selecting and right clicking the item(s).

The icons from the toolbar (add videos, search browser, clipboard, play download, clear completed) don't have any effect on search items.
You can try this: copy a link to the clipboard and then press Play or Download button.

What Firefox version do you have?
Firefox 4.x doesn't work. :( I don't know if i should keep improving that feature, because it becomes slow and thus a bit useless if you have tons of tabs and/or windows.

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.
