fix the service menu for kde 5

I'd like to use this service menu, too, but it doesn't work.

I did everything as you said (added dbus) and even tried the following:
qdbus org.mpris.vlc /TrackList org.freedesktop.MediaPlayer.AddTrack "/home/mark/Tkiat.mp3" 0

But this results in an error:
Cannot find 'org.freedesktop.MediaPlayer.AddTrack' in object /TrackList at org.mpris.vlc

How can I fix this issue?!

Thank you in advance!

Regards,
Chipy

ok now we can test ,

1) launch vlc

2) do this replace /PATH/FILE with your file video

qdbus org.mpris.vlc /TrackList org.freedesktop.MediaPlayer.AddTrack "/PATH/FILE" 0

3) i have seen dbus error ; which distro have you ?

i am not sure but it seems an issue with your vlc installation

1) i have just tested on vlc 1-1-12 and it works
if the folders has a lots of files that are not multimedia files it can take a lots.

2)just try with a folder with a lots of music and less stuff that is not music.

3) click on playlist because it willl not play files untill you click on play. it will just add files into your playlist...

4)have your read this on description ?

If I do the same with out a full path, but only for exemple 'films'
it adds only to playlist first movie, the next three arent shows up.

i think some packages of kde 4.3.5 is broken.. or maybe i should reboot... but i am feeling scared about it...
