Tell me about it. Phonon has been a constant source of trouble
to KDE Games for about six years … It just does not work well on
short sounds in real time. Most sound-intensive KDE games are
using OpenAL now, via KgSound in libkdegames.

See above … :-) … but Phonon works in Linux, in a way, though I never tried it
on Apple OS X. The OpenAL sounds in KDE Games work OK. Try KGoldrunner.

Yeah, well. First it was Xine backend being recommended, then it was
GStreamer and now it's VLC … Those Phonon guys cannot seem to make
up their minds … :-)
BTW the standalone VLC package works well for me at playing movies
and .ogg files on the MacBook Pro.
