[Digikam-users] Digikam & video playback on OS X: solution

Hello everybody,

I was going to post a question regarding how to get video playback with Digikam going on OS X. I have been playing with it for a couple months and this was one of the loose ends I needed to tie up.

However, during writing of this post I stumbled on the answer by myself:
just install the „gstreamer1-gst-libav“ and „gstreamer1-gst-plugins-good“ Macports packages in addition to what the macports-install script in Digikam’s Git repository already installs. :-)

I hope it’ll help somebody! Maybe it can even be added as a dependency to Digikam’s Portfile.

Now I have one excuse less to get Digikam to replace iPhoto with my roughly 45’000 photos and 8000 video clips … ;-)

btw: is it possible to take advantage of the Macbook’s Retina resolution displays with Digikam?  If so, how? Digikam does not scale thumbnails or pictures to full Retina resolution here.
