./multimedia/phonon-backend-vlc, Multimedia API for KDE and QT - VLC backend

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.9.0nb1, Package name: phonon-backend-vlc-0.9.0nb1, Maintainer: markd

Phonon is the Multimedia API for KDE and QT.

In Phonon there are three main concepts: MediaObjects, Paths and Outputs.
The MediaObjects control the playback/capture and provide the media data.
MediaObjects can be connected to Outputs using Path objects which also
allow the insertion of Effect objects between MediaObject and Output.

Required to run:
[multimedia/vlc] [multimedia/phonon]

Required to build:
[pkgtools/x11-links] [x11/fixesproto4] [pkgtools/cwrappers] [x11/xorgproto]

Update phonon-{,qt5-}backend-vlc to 0.9.0


* VLC 2.0 support was removed, VLC 2.1 is at least required to use the
* CMake requirement aligned with libphonon (2.6.2 => 2.8.9)
* Muting is now implemented asynchronously

Bug Fixes

* Restore build support with Qt <= 5.2 in the Qt 5 build.
* Fixed building videowidget for OSX.
* Fixed schemeless URLs

VLC 2.2 API Pickup

* New device listing API used for listing devices without PulseAudio
* New internal signals for muting, corking, and volume changes (these
  directly relate to new AudioOutputInterface49 API in libphonon providing
  these new libvlc features with appropriate frontend control in libphonon)
* This partially improves PulseAudio integration as at least volume and
  mute control is now working correctly again via libvlc natively.

PulseAudio Limitations

* PulseAudio support is still not fully backed via libvlc and cannot be
  correctly intercepted by libphonon. As a result the following features
  continue to not work correctly:
  * runtime-device-rerouting: changing the device order in the Phonon
    configuration at runtime cannot force libvlc to use the correct
    device, if a device was manually set before it will not automatically
    migrate to a new device
  * runtime-device-selection: selecting a device at runtime is not possible
    (see above), as a result applications wanting to do this will get no
    result and a warning will be shown. This also means that the
    configuration module's Test button does not actually play a sound for
    anything but the primary device.
  * stream-category: setting a stream category (pulesaudio role) is not
    possible, all streams are always category Video

Update phonon-backend-vlc to 0.8.2

* Restore build support with Qt <= 5.2 in the Qt 5 build.

* VLC 2.2 compatibility - VLC 2.2 changed the time when PulseAudio streams
  are constructed, rendering the Phonon PulseSupport non-functional as it
  injects stream-dependent properties through the environment which needs
  to happen close to stream creation to avoid timing issues. The changed
  stream creation time makes it impossible to provide high-level PulseAudio
  control while also allowing Phonon applications to construct multiple
  AudioOutputs in a very short time frame. To allow core functionality from
  working under these circumstances Phonon PulseSupport integration is
  disabled when built against VLC >= 2.2 leading to the following known
  * Changing the volume through the PulseAudio stream itself is not
    propagated to Phonon AudioOutputs, meaning the application can not
    reflect volume changes done through other applications (e.g. a volume
  * Changing the muteness through the PulseAudio stream is not propagated
  * The PulseAudio media.role property (as well as derived properties) is
    always set to 'video' making all Phonon application use the video
    category for output device selection (e.g. as seen in the Phonon KCM).
* Revised the logic used to come up with an icon name for libvlc. If the
  application has QApplication::windowIcon set with an QIcon constructed
  through QIcon::fromTheme(string) the actual icon name will be used.
  Otherwise the lower-case version of QCoreApplication::applicationName is
* Setting the libvlc app id is now only dependent on
  QCoreApplication::applicationName being set (previously it was also
  dependent on QCoreApplication::applicationVersion). This change was made
  to accomodate the fact that most applications neglect to set a version.
