Hi, I've compiled the new version 0.7 with Kubuntu Jaunty RC KDE4-Dev and it seems to work now :) No crashes until now and no overlay of songs anymore, thx. Also made a .deb package.

This was probably caused by stupid problem with position slider (finally identified and fixed).

 No video problem

 
 by Takahani on: Apr 23 2009

Hi, thanks for your work, and I'm really interested in it since I'm trying to write a video player applet in amarok, which is basically the same problem, embedded a VideoWidget inside an applet

On two different computers :
Kubuntu 64 bit 8.10 qt4.4.3 nvidia 3D ok
Kubuntu 32 bit 9.04 qt4.5 intel 3D ok,
I can't get a video playing neither with xine or gstreamer backend :/
Sound ok, but black video ...

I've got the same pb on my playground applet in amarok which use the trunk version of plasma::VideoWidget

I always get a black screen ..


On both computer something might be wrong with the phonon/xine/gstreamer/qt/plasma configuration, but i don't where to go ...

Do you have any clue about this problem of not working video ?
Thanks for your work !
Simon

Sorry, I've no idea why this happens. :-/
But this could be probably problem with Phonon or it's backend (or maybe something between Phonon and Plasma).
Maybe author of that widget (Marco Martin) or someone on Plasma IRC channel has some ideas...

 Online stream playback?

 
 by patkoscsaba on: May 8 2009
 
Score 50%

Are there any plans to implement playback of online radio? I would like to use this to listen some online radio. Right now it can't open http://some-radio-server/playlist.m3u nor the direct stream link.

This would be a great addon to this plasmoid and would make it more usefull.

Thanks.

It's finally ready for testing. ;-)
Small tip, importing of remote play lists not always works fully reliable so if this would fail you can open streams using Open URL action.

This is FANTASTIC! It works perfectly with the radio station I listen to and it uses very little CPU too.

I love it now, on my laptop it integrates seemlessly into the desktop and it is not a resource hug ... well at least after the first 5 minutes.

I am curious if it remembers what I was listening to when I restart KDE (or the computer). I will not restart just for this, so I'll see tomorrow.

Great job, you have e new fan.

Now all play lists should be always remembered but you can always export it to PLS or M3U.

 Some small bugs...

 
 by patkoscsaba on: May 12 2009
 
Score 50%

- when it is resized, the icons doesn't keep centered, especially when it is made smaller. It seems like you have a minimum space from the top of the plasmoid.
- for the same reason, it is unusable on a thin Panel
- volume control doesn't pop up near the volume button. Regardless where my plasmoids placed, volume control pops up somewhere in the middle of the screen.
- if you put the plasmoid on the desktop, than accidentally drag it over the Panel (as I did) it enters the Panel. This in fact is not bad, but, if you than drag it back to the desktop, you end up with a broken plasmoid. I had 2 lines of icons on it and none were working.

These are of course some little glitches, maybe they are also easy to fix...

Thanks for report.

1. Applet is meant to change size only horizontally but I can try to rework it in future (especially controls resizing).

2. Wrong placement of volume slider happens only when showing it for first time and is most probably caused by wrong calculation of widget size (they reports proper size only after they are shown for first time, but dialog is positioned before showing, to make it do not jump shortly after showing), I'll try to workaround it for new version.

3. I'll focus on better panel support for next versions.
Accidental moving applets to panels is general Plasma problem.

In fact I get similar crashes with the media player plasmoid in KDE 4.3, and I at least got a backtrace, see the report: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=193004

I hope this can help to fix the problem here, too.

Yes, the playlist issue really doesn't seem to have anything to do with it.

In my test account plasma since some time (perhaps independant of an update) crashes when I try to add the plasmoid to the desktop. I'll file a bug report, but until now I didn't get a good backtrace from the bug manager, although I have the mini player, plasma and kdebase debug packages installed, dunno what I am missing.

I forgot: I can call the plasmoid via plasmoidviewer, but adding to desktop or panel doesn't work in KDE 4.2, while in 4.3 there is no problem (except the known crash).
Maybe i should install Kubuntu or the like in order to find out, whether it is an OpenSuse problem.

If you want you can try it using for example virtual machine by Qemu or VirtualBox.

I nearly forgot to say: In KDE 4.3beta2 it works now (without video, but that doesn't bother me) without crashes. :-)

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.
