kaffeine from CVS eats 100% CPU time on exit with XOrg. Could you fix this annoying problem ?

Try to remove the "XInitThreads();" call in main.cpp and recompile.

It's great, but two requests:

Can you add the old "M" button that hid all the toolbars.

Can you add an option to make Kaffeine start up with a blank playlist when opening a file, like Winamp/XMMS and WMP.

I see there's still the crash when changing to 5.1 surround sound in the xine engine parameters, this really needs fixing, it's the reason i havn't been using kaffeine 5.0rcx....

I'm still hunting this bug. It's very difficult to track them down. Normally it only happens in stopped state - and not with the alsa driver - and very rarely with current xine-lib CVS version - and... Really weird.
xine-lib 1rc7 should be released this week. Try an update.

I've just used this version and it works fine. But when I tried to open media from url, the url dialog box poped up and freezed the Kaffeine when I typed some characters in it.

Is this a bug?
I use Yoper linux 2.1.0 with KDE 3.3.0 and get precompiled Kaffeine by yoper's apt-get.

One suggestion would be nice if i could load subtitle files (srt) through kaffeine :).

But besides that i do like your new interface, I now use kaffeine for DVD/svcd/vcd/mp3 basically all my media playing which is what i've been wannting for along time now.

Keep up the great work...

I've often preferred kaffeine from other video and also audio players for the equalizer: neither xine and mplayer have it (well, gmplayer has it, but it's really ugly), and neither amarok.
Why don't you put it back again?

Finally got this new version tested.

For those who liked the old interface better, like me, it's possible to configure the toolbars for your liking. However looks like the toolbar positions are not saved when exiting the program. I turned off all but control toolbar and moved control toolbar to the bottom, when I exit program and reopen, all toolbars are turned on again and moved back to the top :(

Additional info: Toolbar configuration is saved to ~/.kde/share/config/kaffeinerc as it should, for example:

[Main Window Toolbar controlsToolBar]
IconText=IconOnly
Index=0
Offset=55
Position=Bottom

[Main Window Toolbar mainToolBar]
Hidden=true
Index=1

(among others)

It looks like that config it just not read or respected next time when loading application.

i experienced the same problem. configuring the toolbars in kaffeine does not work and hacking the config file doesn't work either. but i don't like most of these toolbars!
would be nice to be able to configure them just like i want to. :)

ps: i also don't like the new logo movie. it is too inanimate ;)

I was so happy when I discovered kaffeine sometime last year. Finally I had a media player for linux that I liked. It worked with KDE, played movies as well as xine, and had a simple as well as effective interface. I hate being this critical, but this new interface is terrible. Its confusing and messy. I guess I'll be sticking with kaffeine-4.3b untill something else comes along. Thanks for your work though, I hope in future versions the interface can be customizable.

I also hope that in the new release the UI will be customiseable so that I can configure it like it was before this change. I also don't criticise so often, I actually think kaffeine is great, but I'm not happy with the new UI. I hope it will be possible to reverse this change!

The new interface and funcionalities are much better and modern. You've done a fantastic work. So keep with it! In a while we all will have not only nice but also mature app :-)

I don't like this new kaffeine at all.
The previous interface was much better, more user friendly and intuitive. I also loved the toolbar with the controls at the bottom.
There is nothing good about the new interface and what is worse is that it crashes continuously. Furthermore, it creates a wizard.bla file and xine-config file in my home, instead of reading the xine config file in the .xine dir.

Why wasting time in a new interface (which looks worse and less usable) instead of improving the stability?
Sometimes some applications and interfaces are just GOOD and no change is needed.

I just reinstalled ver. 0.4.3b

Ok, here it goes - first, the look'n'feel of the app is totally different, and although I am not a conformist who dislikes anything new, this is not at all good, I loved the toolbar on the bottom, it made Kaffeine, well, Kaffeine, now it makes it bad copy of KPlayer. Second, the fullscreen menu is disastrous - where is that old easy-to-use yet exhaustive (dvd) navigation right-click menu? How can I get to the title menu of the DVD? Also, simple left-click menu is also missing, and that's bad, bad, bad! I spent couple of hours dloading&upgrading xine-lib and compiling kaffeine, and what do I get ;) ? Also, some icons are not installed, or more likely are installed somewhere my system cannot find them, including the icon of the very app...On the bright side, the GO! menu is great, tabs are good idea, and I like the new welcome screen, as well as the nice wizard. Conclusion - I would put back the old gui, with the addition of tabs on the top the main screen, and definitely make a comeback for the old fullscreen menu/s...

I really liked kaffeine but this new look it's awful! I hate kopete because it has this "full of toolbars" look and now kaffeine has the same. You don't have to follow the kde guidelines always. The previous look was just what you expected from a video player while this one is like a text editor!

I too really liked the previous UI. I haven't tried the new one yet though, maybe it is configurable enough to get it look the way I like it.. will test later today. I have to agree, not all programs need to look like each other :)

Instead of a tabs, why don't you use the side bar like Konqueror and Amarok do?

Thanks for you work, this is a great application!

Update your xine-lib version. Kaffeine needs at least 1.0rc4 to compile.
