Yes, now it works. :) Thanks for the fast response.

Another thing ist, that rpmlint reports this:
Quote:

plasmoid-miniplayer.x86_64: W: incorrect-fsf-address /usr/share/doc/packages/plasmoid-miniplayer/COPYING
The Free Software Foundation address in this file seems to be outdated or
misspelled. Ask upstream to update the address, or if this is a license file,
possibly the entire file with a new copy available from the FSF.


I do not know if it is correct, so this is only a hint.

Is it possible to stream content from the internet, like movie files on a HTTP server? For example this one: http://tagesschau.vo.llnwd.net/d3/video/2011/1201/TV-20111201-2110-1301.webm.ogv

Yes, but this depends on Phonon backend.
It works for me with GStreamer, however I can get only video in fullscreen and with "Smurf effect" (too much blue). ;-)
I'll check if the video situation can be improved before starting full port to QtMultimediaKit.

Apparently it also works on desktop. :-)
So maybe it's time to a bit redo some parts to better conform current Phonon situation (but still it will be ported away, for new features).

It's a bit hidden (like other advanced features). ;-)
I'm planning to add menu shown when pressed for longer time (both open and add to playlist buttons).
There is also plan to add configuration to select visible controls (that one caused compilation error).

Now URL opener is available for add button in playlist dialog, using long press (I tried to use the same method for open button in applet but using standard things it looks ugly and doesn't work correctly..).

Also controls visibility (for each one separately, instead of all visible or not) is now finally configurable.

Is it normal to have video output only in fullscreen mode? When playing a video file I am only seeing the control elements, but no video like on your screenshots. When I toggle fullscreen on there I can see the video.

System:
Qt: 4.7.4
KDE: 4.7.3

I'm experimenting right now with more automatic approach, since we can't display video on more than one surface at once, and I personally like option to show it in dialog (most useful when embedded in panel) so I'll remove configuration option to choose between them (it was added only because Phonon used to fail on QGraphicsView) and determine using other factors, height should be enough (if controls are visible and is not tall enough then video will be displayed in dialog).

I tried version 2.0 on openSUSE 12.1 (KDE 4.7.2, Qt 4.7.4, GStreamer backend). When I watch a video the sound is ok, but the video part is only shown in few images that seems only to change when I set the mouse pointer over the plasmoid. In the end the plasma desktop is frozen and does not reply anymore.

But when I switch to fullscreen and then back, it works.

That's a known bug, and technically speaking, nothing freezes, only widget is not properly updated. ;-)

I'm going to get KDE (and Phonon too) from git in next days and check what is fixed there (including stuff related to optical discs).

Thanks. :-)

I've added workaround, try code from master of git repository (link in description).
It's not perfect but seems to not cause bigger CPU usage (well, even smaller) with enough smooth video (update each 50 milliseconds).
That's weird that methods used before do not want to work anymore, maybe I'll ask on IRC or at least check sources of Plasma VideoWidget (not usable for this applet because of much more complicated usage - 3 separate output modes).

1. Would not play mp3. Wav plays fine.
2. Stop button did not work.
3. Volume control did not work.
4. Dragging positions too far right froze plasma. Check threading.

1. In this case compare with Dragon Player / other Phonon based player, all must play the same files.
2. In which conditions? Seek slider was enabled, you could play something else etc?
3. Changing has no effect or shown incorrect value?
4. You mean seek slider?

1. Dragon also does not play mp3. BTW, unless one wants to front for mplayer, vlc is still the most reliable, will usually work without much fuss.
2. Volume control did not do anythings, did not bring up a slider, nada.
3. The position slider moves, that is, until I moved it too far :-)

Which backend are you using?
The only tested and fully working is GStreamer (other at least can't display video on QGraphicsView, at least versions that I have installed).

If it would crash the I would at least know where to search if bactrace would be good. ;-)

This is weird, I've tested it a bit using Project Neon to check if that inverted colors bug is really fixed i that version of backend (it is) and haven't noticed nothing wrong (but that was just checking video for few seconds)...
I'll later test it more extensively using that version, using Kubuntu package 4.4.7really4.5.0 (this is package version here :-D) it works fine.

Also, was 4.5.1 already released or this is git snapshot?

Tested (however using Qt 4.8) and I can confirm only issues with seek slider (using MP3 files), it appears that Phonon (Phonon::MediaObject() object) returns invalid track duration (always 0).

Can you confirm that in playlist view there is no information for track length (title and artist are extracted correctly, of course if set ;-))?

Author unknown on mp3s since I did not tag any of them.
No author on wavs
No track length on either.

The gstreamer/phonon is from Debian, possibly experimental since from there is kde4.7

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
