I get 4 or 5 emails a month from users slagging me off for not adding a toolbar and not putting anything useful in the menuitems with regard to Filelight. It is most frustrating, and is all down to them not installing Filelight before they try to use it. I emphasise as much as I can that you simply must make install the application or you will not get an interface. This is common to any KDE application that uses the KXMLGUI system. Now naturally the application should alert the user that the interface files were not found, I only wish I could. KDElibs unfortunately is at fault here, and it needs to be corrected.

Fortunately amaroK doesn't work at all if you don't install it so we don't have to put up with this kind of complaint/bad first impression.

Anyway, I apologise for losing my temper. With regard to the unresponsive startup, you have a point, I'll make the cursor the busy cursor, I'm not sure how this slipped my mind. The delay is due to xine initialising. This has to be done at some point, so I do it after the window appears to make startup seem faster.

It is true about the kicker and fullscreen issue. I'm not sure why this happens, perhaps I need to set the window to be always on top also? Would seem daft, KWin should handle that.

I do like the idea of a left click in fullscreen mode showing the control window.

Definitely an option to configure and load subs, both divx and dvd ;)

What do you mean?

I like the idea of making it possible to dock the video window, but am not sure of it yet. I considered that route before but in the end have always preferred 2 window video players.

Again I apologise for my previous comment, it is clear from your post that you took the time to write a response and that you were being constructive and often very kind. It's just this particular issue has come to drive me crazy.. Thanks,

Max

I'm afraid you have been an idiot. You didn't make install, if you don't make install with KDE applications the UI files don't get installed and you don't have an interface! Of course there are play/pause buttons you wally! Didn't you even look at the screenshot.

Fool.

When watching an avi movie the slider doesnt seem to work.

Report

MxCl

I imagine this is a specific avi movie as I have tested it with avi movies, and also I am fairly sure it is because xine is telling codeine that the file has no seeking support. I only disable the slider when seeking is not possible (according to xine).

Actually it doesnt allow me to step through any avi or mpg movie using the slide bar so if I stop a movie I cant fast forward back to the place I stopped it. I have to start at the beginning again. Goodluck with your project and keep up the good work.

Thanks :-) I appreciate the offer. I hope you still like Codeine once it reaches version 1.0.0.

As Xine can play streaming media files, is there any chance that codeine could as well?

Thanks....

Yeah it does already, just drag the URL to Codeine, or specify it on the command line. Shoutcast playlists work already too, just click them or drag the link. I'll make this clearer before 1.0.0 - presumably you want a menu item for adding a URL.

Yes I suppose so. I didn't actually try it on the command line, but it would certainly be easier to have an 'Open Url' menu option.

Also, I think it'd be nice if you could bookmark urls as well.

Thanks for replying so quickly...

Actually, I replied too soon. Since 10/23 its in Gentoo portage http://packages.gentoo.org/search/?sstring=codeine
So not really necesary to link to bug report anymore. You could instead direct people to do an `emerge codeine`

I get this error:

videoWindow.cpp: In member function `virtual bool
Codeine::VideoWindow::x11Event(XEvent*)':
videoWindow.cpp:223: error: type specifier omitted for parameter `e'

any hint ? I was thinking about two different qt versions (I've got 3.3.3), what about you?

Please download the new tarball. This should be hopefully now fixed. Also the K-Menu entry now installs properly, and madpenguin8 whipped up some documentation too (we loves him!). Write back if it still doesn't work, thanks!

Try adding #include to the top of that file. Does that help? Sorry for the build problems..

Whoops. kde-apps.org ate the tags, the line is:

#include <qevent.h>

Nup didn't work for me either. I added "#include <qevent.h>" to src/videoWindow.cpp, is that right?
