           Summary: KCompactDisc should default to Phonon backend
           Product: kdemultimedia
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: SuSE RPMs
        OS/Version: unspecified
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kde-multimedia at kde.org
        ReportedBy: robby at periapsis.org

Version:            (using KDE 4.2.0)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs

The way that KCompactDiscPrivate::moveInterface() is written right now, if the
audio system is set to "phonon" you get phonon. If not, you get the wmlib
backend by default, unless it wasn't built.

It would be nice if the phonon backend was used if no other was available and
if the audio system was set to "dummy" as it is in the KCompactDisc

I spent an hour called KCompactDisc::setDevice before I figured out that I
needed to be calling setDevice("/dev/cdrom", 50, true, "phonon") with the
phonon being the important thing. Defaulting to any available backend would be
smarter, in my opinion...

Just some feedback from a developer very frustrated with the KCompactDisc class
right now...
