I love Loopy, the best video player for kde.
It's minimal, elegant and functional.

Unfortunately I have four problems:
1 - in full-screen mode buttons and volume works but I can't click the time scrollbar.
2- in full-screen mode, below the video, there is a line of purple pixels
3- video auto resize works but when I open a sound file the window compress too (I suggest a minimum size)

My version of kde is 4.5.1 and loopy
0.5.3

Sorry for my English. Bye

Hello, I am packaging loopy 0.5.3 for Gentoo Linux, found several problems:
1) Encoding of many files is broken, seems you have non UTF locale. All
translations are now broken in po/ and desktop/, please fix:
$ enca `find -type f|sort -u|grep -v .png$`|grep -v '7bit ASCII characters'
./CHANGELOG: Unrecognized encoding
./desktop/loopy.desktop: Universal transformation format 8 bits; UTF-8
Doubly-encoded to UTF-8 from maccyr
./desktop/loopy_enqueue.desktop: Unrecognized encoding
./desktop/loopy_play_dvd.desktop: Universal transformation format 8 bits;

2) Please use name-version instead of name_version (loopy-0.5.4.tar.gz and
same loopy-0.5.4 for dir in archive), it is tradition in *nix world and will

Hi.
Nice application. Made a rpm package for OpenSuSE 11.2 x86_64. You can download it from www.linux-specialist.com/download/loopy-0.5.3-1.x86_64.rpm
Have a nice day.

Thanks for loopy, nice slim and beautiful..

loopy works nicely with:
1. phonon-mplayer
2. phonon-xine
3. phonon-gstreamer

but with phonon-VLC-git, it has to be pause, seeked left-or-right, and play, to let the video play in loopy.

Also, could you please see the subtitles work with loopy...

phonon-vlc shows subtitles in loopy, but in other phonon backends like mplayer, xine, or gstreamer, no subtitles.

Could you please look into "subtitles" with all the backends..

----------

loopy to be perfect only need these (as i see) with all the backends! perhaps phonon shoud standardize these:

1. seek should work flawlessly (with mouse dragging or mouse clicking on the seekbar; and keyboard cursors like left-arrow, right arrow, pgup-pgdwn)

2. subtitles (will all the backends, where the backend support the subtitles, like mplayer, vlc)

thank you for creating a nice, slim video player. thanks!

Hello,

i think you are missing the phonon devel package.

Something like libphonon-dev.

Hello,
as oxygen developper I'd like to help fix the known bugs/warnings you report in your descriptions. Could you give more details ? (either here or by email at hugo at oxygen dash icons dot org)

In the meanwhile I'll build the app and will try to run.

Hey,

heads up with your first c++/qt/kde project, even if you feel not getting enough response with regards to "user-base".

I can just encourage you to keep on going learning a programming language, such as C++, and help making KDE/Linux and everything else just more useful and cool than it already is.

If you add subtitles support, it will be my default player for KDE. That is only feature that is missing this almost perfect app.
