Description:

KPlayer is a KDE multimedia player.

With KPlayer you can easily play a wide variety of video and audio files and
streams using a rich and friendly interface compliant with KDE standards.

Features include
- video, audio and subtitle playback from file, URL, DVD, VCD,
audio CD, TV, DVB, etc., as well as KDE I/O Slaves;
- volume, contrast, brightness, hue and saturation controls;
- zooming, full screen and fixed aspect options;
- status and progress display and seeking;
- multimedia library to organize your media files and streams;
- configuration dialog and file specific options;
- KPart for integration with Konqueror, KMLDonkey, etc.

The new 0.7 version brings KPlayer into the KDE 4 age. It has been ported to KDE 4 APIs, including Solid. There are currently no plans to use Phonon, since MPlayer is the only backend KPlayer uses. Some polishing has been done, primarily to make KPlayer window resizing smoother. And as usual there have been many bug fixes and translation updates.

Debian packages are available thanks to Christian Marillat.
Set up the repository unless you already have it in your sources.list:

echo 'deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org unstable main' >> /etc/apt/sources.list

Update the package list and install MPlayer, KPlayer, libdvdcss and codecs if applicable.

apt-get update
apt-get install mplayer kplayer kplayer-doc libdvdcss w32codecs

 DVD

I think it's a great player, except a simple DVD button would be a nice addition. That is the only thing keeping me from using it as my default player.

Put a URL like dvd://1 in the File Open URL dialog. KPlayer will then play your DVD and also put the URL on the playlist. After that you can just select it from the list, be it the drop down list or the editor list, and KPlayer will play DVD again.

I will try to add better DVD support in 0.6, but I will do my best to avoid cluttering the GUI with extra buttons.

hi!

got one problem: when playing a movie, it is started in an seperate mplayer-window. thats not supposed to be so, isn't it? i would like it to be in the kplayer moviewindow :)

or did i just miss a configuration option?

by the way i'm running kde 3.2.3 gcc 3.3.3 an qt 3.2.3 (i think so)

i'll give it a try with gcc 3.4 :)


by the way, a cool feature would be a systray-integration. i like that a lot like in kaffeine, but i like mplayer more than xine :)

That sounds like you have gui = yes in you mplayer config file.

I don't know which distribution you use, but normally the mplayer config reside in /etc/mplayer. Just remove or comment out the line from it and you should be fine.

Of course video should be shown inside KPlayer. Chrber is right that you may have a "gui=yes" somewhere either in /etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf or in ~/.mplayer/config, so if you find it just comment it out.

Another possibility is that your MPlayer is using an odd video output like "-vo gl" or somesuch. By default KPlayer tells MPlayer to use "-vo xv", but if the XVideo extension is not loaded, that will fail and MPlayer will fall back on other outputs. Look in the message log to see what actually happens.

More information in the KPlayer Installation Micro-HOWTO:

http://sourceforge.net/docman/display_doc.php?docid=23142&group_id=71710

and the Basic Configuration Micro-HOWTO:

http://sourceforge.net/docman/display_doc.php?docid=23154&group_id=71710

I will think about the system tray thingy for 0.6. :-)

This can happen if you are using GL or GL2 as your output by default. If you use GL or GL2 then it uses your graphic driver OpenGL overlay.

THis happens with the ATI Radeon drivers from ATI. It will always play in a separate window. Try xv.

 kmplayer vs kplayer

 
 by soulrebel on: Jul 13 2004
 
Score 50%

well i think your player is great, but kmplayer is also good, dunno which is better, probably yours but kmplayer has support for xine too, than again there is kxine and kaffeine...
my question why dont all of you sit together and make the-best-kde-media-player-ever??? ;)
join the efforts and standardize to one mediaplyer that all the distros can (and will) ship! i know that diversity is a big bonus of the open source world but i think something like the standard kde-media-player could (and should) be one application, including all the benefits of the kde-players mentioned above. would be more comprehensive, not only for newbies...
anyways kplayer is probably my favorite and has good chances of becoming th-best-player! just make the others join you ;)

 KPlayer is the Best!

Hey Bro Developer,

I love Kplayer but it lacks:

1. System tray (like kaffeine, noatun, juk)
2. external playlist (the drop down list is weird)
3. Simplified Configuration/Settings, (I can't understand most of the options in the settings, those are too cryptic)

Above all KIO Slave support is just awesome. Thanks for such a nice player.

Eagerly waiting for next release with systray support and simplified settings. :)

Could you please list specific settings that are difficult to understand?

If they were not useful, they wouldn't be there. I am in the process of adding tooltips and whats-this hints for every setting. Do you think this will help?

I will think about the systray thingy though. May have a 0.5.2 release in a month or two.

 Simplified Settings:

 
 by maarizwan on: Jul 26 2004
 
Score 50%

1. Yes, tooltips would be great!!! And
2. Most of all Settings lack ICONS :(.
3. File Association is not present in the Settings, I want to play all Audio and Video files with Kplayer!

Very Annoying
4. The message window: the error dialog just popups up. nobody like popups without 'Close' button and 'don't show this message again []' checkbox.

or better please show error message in a simplified manner in the 'Status' bar with Bold Red Color
like:
File not Found
instead of
displaying the whole Mplayer's message.

Thank you! I wish KPlayer becomes the Default Player in KDE.

> 1. Yes, tooltips would be great!!!

They are now in the CVS. Check it out to see if they are any less confusing...

> 2. Most of all Settings lack ICONS :(.

That's because noone made them. I am not a graphic artist. So your best bet here is to contact the author of your favorite icon theme(s), let them know how much you like KPlayer :-) and very politely (but firmly :-) suggest to them the idea of making icons for KPlayer actions (like brightness, contrast, shuffle, open URL, whatever) as well as pages in the settings dialog.

> 3. File Association is not present in the Settings, I want to play all Audio and Video files with Kplayer!

Good idea. Could you please submit it here: http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=add&group_id=71710&atid=532185 so it does not get forgotten? Thanks!

You can submit this as well, but I will need to think about the best way to do this, as right now there is no good way to put a check box in the message log. Maybe make it an option in the right click menu? By the way, I am pretty sure message log does have a Close button. ;-)

Right now you can only do that by (very carefully) editing the kplayerui.rc file. Don't forget to keep a backup.

I may add the toolbar config feature in the next version, 0.6, but that won't be ready until next year, sometime in spring probably.

Can you tell me what is wrong with the contrast button?

nothing special don't be afraid the contrast button is nice but i think that toolbar is a little "saturated" and i just want to keep useful buttons like play, pause and stop. personnally i don't use brightness, contrast and saturation each time i saw a movie... that's all!

 config file option

I realy like kplayer, and the deb packages as well!
I'd like a kplayer command line option to select mplayer config file!
And the reaseon: when I watch a movie with subtitle, I add to mplayer the vop=expand=-1:-66:-1:0 option to have a black place for the subtitles.
But when the movie is in my language, than I hate that black area:)
So before kplayer I had two mplayer icon on my desktop, with the two options.

Fine thanks, and sorry for my bad enlish!

Hi,

You don't need any command line option. KPlayer is a KDE program, which means all functionality is available through the user interface!

The feature you are looking for is called File Properties.

First of all, remove any -vop options from mplayer.conf.

Open KPlayer and load the file you want to play with subtitles. Then go to the File menu and choose Properties. Choose Advanced on the left and put the -vop=expand option into the Additional Command Line Arguments field.

By the way, in recent versions of MPlayer the -vop option is now called -vf.

Please let me know if you get any more problems.

Jes, I know this option of ui, and I use it for other things.
It would be a nice thing, when I musn't do that algorithm every time,when I use this player(frontend).
Yes,I know it's only a frontend, and in case I want to use command line, I would do better,if I use gmplyaer/mplayer simply. But at my computer gmplayer is full with bugs, and I like when all of programs have the look from kde!
Also that I would like to use in the desktop icons details: Exec:/usr/share../kplayer --conf=~/mplayer1.conf
Of coures it's not the most important thing:)

Thanks for the quick answer!

It's also a good way, if the user specify a subtitle, then the black area apaers! Or there is a button for it, but I think it's more complicated!

If it will be once in kplayer, I would be very pleased!
Thanks, I realy like kplayer, and in the 0.5.2 there is also hungarian language, I like it.
Well job!

I made this in the kplayerprocess.cpp, @ line 571, and it puts a black rectangel, when a subtitle loaded!

It can be also a chekbox at kplayersettingssubtitle, and much more:)))

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
