This plasmoid is a controller and a visualizer of informations about the songs for amarok 2.0.
It is quite, let's say, advanced compared with the "Now Playing" plasmoid. I have Kirocker as a model, so it works well even on a thin panel.
Currently it shows basilar info about the song, the cover image, the rating and other minor things, but I plan to add some other Things in the future.
Anyway if you have some feature request, please tell me!

Hope you enjoy it!

    -i don't know if i've understood what you mean; you can collapse the extenders as you collapse the notifications.

    -as for choosing what to add, many asked me about this, but i didn't do that yet because of the complexity, and i didn't want to provide 1000 checkboxes in the configuration dialog. but i have an idea: since i'm now developing a desktop and a panel with the support for grouping applets
    (http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Grouping+Desktop?content=116926), when they'll be ready i could make for each component of playwolf an applet so you could put inside a group what you want how you want. it would be possible to configure the popup too.

     Display stars

    It would be very nice, if the star rating would be displayed at the widget. Maybe under the cover or above the title.

    But i love it already. Great work!

    i like your work. Works great here.. and it makes it easier to jump to the next track .. exactly what i was looking for. :)

    And i have a suggestion too. Would be nice if the horizontal and vertical size of the plasmoid could be configured separately. The plasmoid would look better on my desktop if it has a more rectangle like form. If it is possible to make the plasmoid wider a positive efect would be, that in most cases the text don't has to be scrolled.

    Thx again.. great work.

    i'm not sure what you mean... i mean, if you have it in an horizontal panel i don't think it makes sense to resize its height. The same thing for a vertical panel. If you use it in the desktop instead you can resize it freely as you resize any other plasmoid.

    hi, i mean.. the free desktop mode and no on my system i cannot change horizontal and vertical separately. i can only change both at the same time and it keeps the aspect ratio. :/

    you're right, for some reason i said it to keep the aspect ratio. anyway you can change it if you press ctrl while you resize it.

     radio strams

    Hello Giulio,

    first I want to thank you for this very nice plasmoid. It is great.

    But, there seems to be a small issue with changing the displayed information about title, artist and album if you hear internet radio streams, which are sending the id3 tags for each title, they are playing.
    The playwolf is only showing the information of the first title of the stream and is not following the title changing.

    Maybe you can fix that easily. Thank you!

    it seems to be an amarok bug that causes this. i've reported it in the kde bug tracker: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=222451

    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.
