Description:

(the screenshots are from version 0.0.5)
Please note this is a development version of PlaybaK, you may see a lot of bugs and there are missing a lot of basic features like repeat or aspect ratio.
The idea of creating PlaybaK was based upon a mockup created by menace1982 that you can see here: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/A+Media+Player+for+KDE4?content=94472
PlaybaK is (or will be) a combination of the best functions of several multimedia players and is capable of playing music and videos (soon CDs, DVDs and photos). It is able to distinguish different types of videos (music videos, TV shows, movies, personal videos,...) but it still has some bugs. PlaybaK allows you to read the song's lyrics (soon it will fetch the lyrics and timed lyrics if available) and also allows you to know more about the singers with a brief search made by PlaybaK itself.

Certain basic functions are not available yet. As an example, for now, there are no visualizations due to Phonon's limitations.
A further development of PlaybaK will depend on everyone's opinion on it. Therefore, it would be appreciated if you commented below, reporting opinions, problems, suggestions...

We hope you will enjoy KDE Media Player.

How to add timed lyrics
1. Search the lyrics
2. Open the music on KDE Media Player
3. Right click the music in the playlist and click "Edit lyrics..."
4. Paste the lyrics you found.
Hard way:
5. Do the same for each line: move the cursor to the line, set its time
Easier way:
5. Click "Save", play the music and press record button located in the middle top box (you should see the lyrics on it, if you don't, double click the song).
6. Click the bottom of the box when someone says the next line.
7. Click save button once you're done
8. Disable record mode pressing the button again
9. Double click the music in the playlist and enjoy
(later it will be possible to download timed lyrics)

Coming features on next version (0.0.8)
- Subtitles support
- Costumization
- Album cover fetch
- Better Nepomuk integration (if possible)
- Better collection (including artist/album/track editors)
- Brazilian Portuguese language

Source code was released
I'm new in KDE and QT programming, my program has some weird, useless or bad code. I used a KDevelop template to start programming KDE Media Player. I would like if someone could make DEB and RPM packages.
May 8, 2010
KDE Media Player 0.0.6 released
- Collection - up to now it can look for files and organize them by itself, you can't manage the files yet and it might not show some found musics it found.
- Improved multimedia information - KDE Media Player saves the picture of the artist so it won't donload it all the time and it can also be shown in other places like system tray's icon tooltip
- Czech and Portuguese(European) languages available (French comming soon) - media information page will look for information in your language (Czech or Portuguese)
- Some bug fixes (lyrics editor now works)
- All options in setting's general page now work

- Compact mode (it isn't that compact yet)
- Video area isn't black anymore while playing songs: It let's you rate your songs and suggests you other songs to listen to
- Nepomuk integration (unfortunately my desktop got broken and I can't make Nepomuk work on my laptop so Nepomuk integration can have some bugs and isn't complete yet)

Do you mind trying to do the same but with the collection working?

I turned off the collection. After that the files were added to the playlist. But the application crashes when switching to the next track.

So you mean kmp loads automatically an avi file?
Did you check collection settings?

And when the kmp started:
QFile::seek: IODevice is not open
Connecting to deprecated signal QDBusConnectionInterface::serviceOwnerChanged(QString,QString,QString)
QProcessPrivate::createPipe: Cannot create pipe 0x8b4ff08: Too many open files

Immediately after installing the application opens the movie *. avi. After that, nothing else opens. The collection does not add (there is one item Unknown Artist and nothing else).
When you try to open the file in the console cat is:
kmp (29612): Failed to lock file "/ var / tmp / kdecache-depp / kpc / kde-icon-cache.lock", last result = 2
kmp (29,612) KIO:: SlavePrivate:: SlavePrivate: Connection server not listening, could not connect

http://qt.nokia.com/doc/4.6/qtreeview.html#details

Quote:It is simple to construct a tree view displaying data from a model. In the following example, the contents of a directory are supplied by a QDirModel and displayed as a tree:

QFileSystemModel *model = new QFileSystemModel;
model->setRootPath(QDir::currentPath());
QTreeView *tree = new QTreeView(splitter);
tree->setModel(model);

Thank you but that example just shows files and folders in the QTreeView and that's not what I wanted. I already tried some QT examples, I saw this one too and another one but it was too confusing and maybe what I need...

Ok, so...what do you want to do exactly with the QTreeView?

Report

I want a QTreeView for collection part in KDE Media Player.
This is an example:
|+Music
||-+Artist 1
|| |-Song 1
|| |-Song 2
||
||-+Artist 2
| |-Song 1
|
|+Movies
| |-+Movie 1
| |-+Movie 2

So, what about using a QTreeWidget instead of a QTreeView? Maybe it's more flexible...

Yeah, it works, thanks. I thought QTreeView was better so I didn't try QTreeWidget.

Yes! I like it! It looks really nice.
Will you change the source code?
I'm doing a PKGBUILD for Arch Linux, and if you change the source code, i needn't create a patch to make it build and run.

Thanks :)

Yes, don't worry, next version will have that problem solved.
If you want you can upload the package and tell me so I can add a link on this page.

Hello,

maybe you can join forces with the Bangarang media player (http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php/Bangarang?content=113305), both projects seems very similar to me.

I don't know... It depends on how that joint is made.
btw, I don't mean I don't like Bangarang, it is a good player. It's just I don't think they are similar and there are somethings on KDE Media Player that I don't want to change.
