These issues are not related.
Which version of Phonon and Phonon GStreamer (or other backend) are you using (some versions have some bugs...)?

Try to use version from git, it now tries to get duration from cache (it really should get all meta data from there, as there are nearly no chances that Phonon will return them synchronously anyway...), this should solve DBus issue.

Is duration still wrong (it wasn't supposed to add more meta data but fix available ones)?
Which issues you have with 2.1 (crashes, freezes or what)? It does work for me now, using GStreamer backend.
Apparently Kubuntu doesn't have backend for MPlayer so I can't test it (and I'm afraid that it is even less mature than VLC one, which crashes when unloading...).
I'll probably move to caching all meta data anyway (I only need good way to avoid caching no longer needed data - figure out how to check if track is still used by other playlist in most efficient way).
Can you check if it works for you with GStreamer backend?

Yes, I know that it is missing (in current git version it obtains it from player directly, so it should be more valid). ;-)
I was asking if duration is still wrong after recent changes.

Thanks for backtraces, but due to lack of debug symbols I have no idea whats wrong, except that both looks as the same issue...
Can you try to install it with debug data (direct compilation of source from package should create version with debug symbols)?

Sorry for so big delay, but I was busy with some "real life" stuff...
I've restored my MSN account (it got deactivated and was removed after not using for more than one year). ;-)

And this backtrace is different, this time it looks like generic backend or Phonon crash, without of trace of applet...

Can you check this with GStreamer backend?
And does it display correct data for normal, tagged MP3 files (those appears to be streams)?
That strange duration value looks like result of overflow or something like that (value from GetMetadata is quite big for your streams). Also according to the same output artists key is empty for that stream (so it is replaced by placeholder string). I'm not sure if in that case it should try to split title value on "-" character as it will lead to errors in some cases.
There is need to compile only applet in debug mode (to know to which file and line points that only line mentioning it in backtrace), other components are not needed in this case.

And those two files show correctly in playlist (except that both lack artist value)?

To build with debug data try to add below code to CMakeLists.txt file in main source directory:

SET(CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE RelWithDebInfo CACHE STRING "Choose the type of build, options are: None Debug Release RelWithDebInfo MinSizeRel." FORCE)

Then run install script and try to reproduce crash.

no. only location tag is correctly. rest of tags show incorrectly (tags from radio stream plays before play mp3/flac archives)

big icon http://wstaw.org/m/2012/01/17/plasma-desktopP21894.png

add these line in cmakelist.txt and build with install.sh script (and install)

drop plasmoid into plasma-desktop, open filelist window and... kill plasma-desktop. without "kbug" and plasmoid (show in nothing) trace

open new plasma-desktop... in black wallpaper XD http://wstaw.org/m/2012/01/17/plasma-desktops15829.png

open mp3 and freeze plasmoid and desktop ( back desktop in 30sec, but plasmoid don't respond).

open .pls playlist and same result. now crash plasma-desktop, but with trace http://paste.kde.org/187604 http://wstaw.org/m/2012/01/17/plasma-desktopp19720.png

This is really weird, as it seems that system used to prevent this could be a cause for this happening. :-/
Try removing belowe code from applet/Playser.cpp (around line 474):

if (isVideoAvailable() && translatedState == PlayingState)
{
m_stopSleepCookie = Solid::PowerManagement::beginSuppressingSleep("Plasma MiniPlayerApplet: playing video");

if (!m_notificationRestrictions)
{
m_notificationRestrictions = new KNotificationRestrictions(KNotificationRestrictions::NonCriticalServices, this);
}
}
else if (m_notificationRestrictions)
{
Solid::PowerManagement::stopSuppressingSleep(m_stopSleepCookie);

m_notificationRestrictions->deleteLater();
m_notificationRestrictions = NULL;
}


And then recompile and restart plasma-desktop process (kill it and run using KRunner or log again into session, no need for full system restart).

I've added option to disable notifications and screen saver inhibition (the only possible offenders), you can try now without need to apply patch.

 cpu usage

I tried it just now, it works fine, but i've two problems
1) scaling produces pixelated videos
2) cpu usage is very high, if i scale the window to 1024 to 768, it jumps to 50%, making miniplayer unusable for me.

is that expected? i'm using gstreamer backend.

Yep, sadly currently Phonon isn't good at drawing video on QGraphicsView (used by Plasma), currently there is (probably) no acceleration at all and yes, sometimes pixels are clearly visible (especially in full screen mode)...
This is one of the reasons (main was that Phonon used to often fail completely on QGV in the past) why there is alternative option to use video in dialog, but due to some changes in Plasma "native" video widget fails to render in dialog since few major KDE releases, so it is currently also QGV based. :-D

The plan is to move to Phonon QML components when those will be finally ready or experiment with QtGstreamer library. The latter would give additional advantages over Phonon (like more options and bigger control), though would require some additional work. QtMultimedia(Kit) is very big disappointment here, since it has very poor API (comparing to Phonon) and it was even slower on my hardware (there exists a branch on github with experimental port using it, version from QtMobility package, you can try it - though it may require manual moving of some headers since they were broken in Kubuntu package - it looks like nobody tested it after packaging).

It's not a good idea to manually overwrite packages (especially since Phonon 4.6 introduced some various internal changes - including build system ones), in my case I've decided to wait for next Kubuntu release, since they will have new version packaged (4:4.7.0really4.6.0-0ubuntu1).

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
