 Minimal mode?

Any chance of implementing a minimal mode (hide status/toolbars, etc.) in Dragon Player? That would really make it complete!

Yes, that would be cool. It should also auto-hide windows-decorations!

I don't plan on it. Amarok used to let you hide the menu bar and such, but people would do it accidental and then not know how to get it back.

Just use fullscreen mode if you want to fully watch the movie, otherwise honestly the toolbar and such isn't taking up too many pixels.

Well, I disagree. Sometimes I'm streaming a football match or a tv show while browsing or working. Using minimal mode in combination with keeping the window above all others really rocks in those situations, keeping as much of my other program visible as possible.

I understand your concerns about there being no UI in minimal mode, but what about showing the toolbar at mouseover, in the same way as happens now in fullscreen mode? That way it won't confuse anybody, right? :)

you can have an option to toggle fullcompact view in the context menu, like in kaffeine. Nobody will be confused

Then use Kaffeine? Personally when I want a minimal player I just launch mplayer from konsole. Use the right tool for the job.

Any additional feature that is added to Dragon Player has to either require no additional default buttons or options (like I'm thinking of showing some metadata when playing an audio file) or is one that is required to have access to a movie (external subtitle file support).

OH, but after using Dragon- i don't want to use Kaffeine!!! but i watch vidcasts, movies etc. via playlist--- Dragon would be perfect, even if there was a separate playlist application for it-- if there was no way fit it into the interface. I respect the work gone into the user experience, and sticking to goals, but I can't justify 2 separate apps for one purpose. I understand if Dragon as a project is stone here, but HUGELY disappointed, and honestly a little hopeful Kaffeine will take a few interface cues from Dragon.

I understand if you don't want to implement a minimal mode for personal reasons, but your argument about using mplayer just doesn't hold. Mplayer will not use KDE's default sound configuration (I have for instance two sound-cards), nor will it work with KIO-slaves. Basically many of the advantages KDE provides are lost.
Kaffeine may become a possible replacement, but as of now there is no KDE4 version and Kaffeine is still much bigger than Dragon.

First, thanks for your work on Dragon Player, we appreciate it. The player's simple interface is what bring us to it (and Codeine) in the first place.

About the suggested option to hide some interface elements, this is my take.

1) Toolbar and Status Bar = YES
2) #1 and Windows Decorations = NO NO

Removing decorations will bring confusion and probably will break some interface style guides along the way.

About the toolbar and status bar, first people the player is already very compact. We can gain some space, but we are not talking about Windows Media regular/compact difference here.

I suggest an option to implement the bar hiding that will not need any additional interface (visible) option.

1) Add a key binding to toggle the bars. Something like CTRL + T
2) Only when the toolbars are hidden, show a message in the title bar with a brief instruction on how to turn them on.

Windows Title Example:

Dragon Player (CTRL + T for Toolbar)

what's so bad about removing the window decoration...?
All "we" want is to have a video playing in some corner without losing screen estate.
There should be no difficulties whatsoever. In the worst case a click in the window could either open a menu with the option to leave minimal mode, or even more extrem leave the minimal mode right away.

 slider

 
 by jdbausch on: Feb 14 2008
 
Score 50%

under codeine, if you click somewhere on the slider track the slider moves there.

under dragon, it skips a bit forward or backward.

is there some way to configure the slider track to work as it did in codeine? it is one of the main features I use in a media player.


thanks

This might be implemented in Dragon Player released with KDE 4.1. I was kind of waiting to see what people liked, I wasn't sure.

obviously a player must be able to play its media correctly.

other than that I have only 2 features that drive me to a player:

1 - the slider behavior I mentioned (jump to click location, not jump ahead/back)

2 - open new videos in new windows (allowing multiple videos playing at the same time)

so cast my vote for that behavior!

thanks

...and if i were to use Dragon, i'd prefer the way that the slider functions currently, as in most instances,(casual video watching), i find i'll want to rewind/fast forward "a bit"; rather than to a specific second. oftentimes i'll miss something in the video, and clicking a slider to scrub to the appropriate moment can be quite cumbersome. am i wrong, or is the function still there with click and drag?

True, most players in Linux perform that way. It not necessarily so on other platforms.

the arrow keys on the keyboard should jump you forward and back. it is actually much easier to use them for that purpose. (no mouse aiming)

and since there is a simple and effective way to skip, I think the slider should be used for click to location. Dragging the slider is much more of a pain, and there is no other way to aim for a specific point in the timeline, it just makes more sense to me for click to location.


I imagine that this is counter to the design of dragon (keeping it very simple) but perhaps an option for the slider?

If I'm not wrong you can jump to a specific location using the middle mouse button.

 video should not resize.....

Sorry, but i hvn't tried the latest version.
It would be better, if video won't resize when we touch the sliders (Track or volume). It's annoying.

and one bug (may be already resolved in new version)- player crashes if you keep pressing full screen key "F" for couple of seconds.

 Overlay vs. textured video

Is there a way to force Dragon Player to use overlay instead of textured video? I get terrible tearing in all video applications in textured mode. My laptop has an Intel 945GM card and it's apparently impossible to make vsync work properly...

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
