Some month ago i was at home by a friend who had several musicvideos on the screen.
I wondered how he manages all this musicvideos and had the idea that it would be nice to have videointegration into Amarok especially for musicvideos also because I like listening to music and watching the videos.
My idea is:
You have a song (MP3 or any other format wich is not in a format for videos) in your collection (the song has taggs and Labels an so on) and maybe you found the musicvideo for this song on the Internet and downloaded it to your Harddisk.
Wouldn't it be nice just to say: "hey Amarok, I got the musicvideo for this song, here it is."
Just add the video as "additional Media" to the song, so that next time you play this song you can listen to the MP3 and watch the Video you had downloaded and added.
I know that the MP3 now isn't synchronised with the video, but my idea was to have something like the virtualisation-modul of Amarok just with the musicvideo of the song respectively a easy way to manage music with videos. (A function that switches between the sound of the MP3 and the one that comes with the video might also conceivable to get the sound synchronised)
Maybe Youtube integration and other stuff is also possible.
I know it is a little bit crazy but I would be happy to see something like this in the futur.
Another way to get musicvideos into Amarok isn't that difficult I think:
Amarok can play the sound of OGM's (Xine backend?), add taggs and labels to the OGM like to an MP3 (In my case it was a film).
But the Video isnt shown.
Wouldn't it be possible to show the video like in the mockup and get musicvideointegration for Amarok this way?
I hope someone understood what i ment (in spite of my english).
Maybe there is someone who'd like to add this function to Amarok (as modul oder plugin or whatever it's called by Amarok)
The feature is going to be implemented in Amarok2!!!
