           Summary: Bangarang as the new default library-based player.
           Product: kdemultimedia
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Unlisted Binaries
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kde-multimedia at kde.org
        ReportedBy: alejandronova at gmail.com

Version:           unspecified
OS:                Linux

Now we have 2 programs to play media in KDE Multimedia. Juk, a library-based
media player, and Dragon Player, a file-based media player. As you know, Juk
lacks maintenance, and Dragon Player is essentially in maintenance mode. While
all this happen, a new NEPOMUK-based player, Bangarang, is slowly gaining
traction and, with KDE 4.6, is expected not only to have an imminent release,
2.0, but to reach its fullest potential because of NEPOMUK bug-fixing (thinking
about bug 246678, among others).

With NEPOMUK being in a truly usable state, Bangarang should shine and make a
library-based player like Juk irrelevant. Moreover, Bangarang (as seen here:
) will support the new Web Metadata Extractor Framework expected for future KDE
SC releases, and can feed semantic information to NEPOMUK. Something Juk can
only dream of.

My wish is: support Bangarang as a first class citizen, overwrite its version
number and include it in the KDE Software Compilation, as the default
library-based player and with the potential to become a competent file-based
player also. The benefits to KDE as a whole (validation of the NEPOMUK
framework, extensive pumping of metadata through all the NEPOMUK database,
sinergies with the NEPOMUK team about speed and optimization) are immense.

Reproducible: Didn't try
