           Summary: Visualization plugins should be accessible directly from
                    the application
           Product: noatun
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Debian testing
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kde-multimedia at kde.org
        ReportedBy: beat_fasel at yahoo.com

Version:           2.2.1 (using KDE KDE 3.1.1)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages
OS:          Linux

In order to active visualization plugins, one has to do this in the preferences of Noatun. Even though xmms does the same, I feel that's this is a usability problem. 
In my opinion, visualization plugins should be directly accesible from the main application, e.g. via the context menu (Windows Mediaplayer allows this for example). In my opinion, the preferences menu is something for long-lasting changes and not something one does change often, like a visualization effect.
Configuration of visualization plugins (e.g. plugin specific parameters) very well belong into the preferences, however, the activation of the visualization plugins might better fit into a more directly accessible menu.

Thanks for your attention!
Noatun is a nice program!
