Embedding KPart media player, GUI modification?

Hi Karsten

Thank you for your answer, but how does the Engine connect to a GUI widget,
i.e. the area for the video playback? I mean, I still want to display the
video, I just don't want the default buttons of KMPlayer.

I'm sorry if this is obvious but I'm pretty new to KDE.

Kind regards, Ola

you might use KMediaPlayer/Engine instead of KMediaPlayer::Player. That way,
you get a Player instance without a GUI, so you can provide your own.
