Type: Video Application
Depend: KDE 3.1.x

More Info:

 Video player plugin for Konqueror using MPlayer,
Xine or GStreamer. Like MPlayer, the Xine and
GStreamer backend are out-of-process players. So
it will not crash konqueror when Xine or GStreamer
Also a simple tool for video playing and
recording. Supports many playlist formats,
including PLS, M3U, ASX, SMIL and podcast
RSS/Atom, plays all links directly from the
internet. Other specialties are DVD, VCD and VDR

 Changes since version 0.9.2
- Fix realvideo on tagesschau.de, support control
lists as well
- Toolbar can now be changed using KDE's default
KEditToolbar dialog
- Support 'ref' media tags and 'meta' head tags
for Smil
- TV source channel switching using Xv player now
lowers volume for a short time
- Fix passing playlist files at the commandline,
were directly fed to backends
- Fix ASX in case entries point to other playlist
files, these weren't resolved
- With plugin, undo infowindow or controlpanel
only view if video output  is detected (basically
undo (mis)detection which controls to show)
- Fix set Edit mode window to plain text, it
interpretered HTML tags

Compared to the 0.9.1 series, the differences are
RealPix image format support, updated gstreamer
backend from 0.8 to the latest stable 0.10
version, a recorder that uses the Xine's mrl
extension which, unlike the others, shows video
while recording, a central timing registration
that allows more accurate SMIL animations which
enables animation to pause (including running
gif/realpix animations and/or videos), and a
simple playlist editor that edits the raw XML at
any point in the tree.

0.9.x versions are the begin of playlist support,
but trying very hard not to duplicate the ones
found in the audio players and kaffeine. Current
idea is using a subset of SMIL as a document
format. This means no list of playable entries,
but more like a presentation.
I'm open for ideas for a good editor :-).
