When I right click in dolphin track plays fine but when I open track in 'Media Lists' the sound is distorted. Tried several times same result.

Also how do I add to playlist?

Discovered how to add to playlist, click on the arrow next to track in media list. However when I play track the sound is distorted too.

Little more success re garbage on pausing and playing second track. Noticed Amorok did the same. I fiddled with pulseaudio with no joy until I picked zine backend instead of gstreamer in system settings. Playing ok now with pulseaudio. However it is pretty complicated with little help from forums etc and I don't have much confidence.

Glad things are working out a bit better for you. The best way to get support when things aren't working as expected is to file a bug report. That way we can gather enough information to diagnose the problem.

Since 1.0.1 builds and works straight out of the box, I banged together a FreeBSD port - if I haven't done anything horribly wrong it should show up in the ports tree soonish, and as a package whenever the build cluster gets around to it.

Hello,

I Just wanted to say that this is a really great application. I love that it's both nice to look at and very uncluttered. Immediately it's become my default.

I would offer to help with it, but I have absolutely no knowledge of programming, so I guess I'll just cheer you on from the sidelines. I guess I can write clear how-tos and help files in English if that's any use.

Thanks for all your hard work!

That would definitely be welcome. Feel free to contact me if you'd like to help. My email address is in About dialog in the app. And, thanks so much for your support and encouragement. :-)

Custom smart playlists and advanced filtering options (by genre first, then artist, then album, etc.) would be greatly welcome.

Currently any ratings under 4 stars can't be taken advantage of.

Sure! Working hard to get a 2.0 alpha ready in the next few weeks.

Oh, I don't remember where i got the wallpaper .
Hope this helps!

Then please count with me for translating Bangarang to spanish!

Also, one feature I really miss from W$ is the awesome DFX plugin for Winamp which enhances played music to an incredible level, it's pretty cool.
The only thing near to that here in GNU/Linux is the "Party" equalizer preset in Amarok 2.2 and up. You have to try what I say to note it: anything played via any player you want sounds... err... well, just ok. Play the same song with Amarok's Party enabled equalizer and it will rock! - still nowhere near what DFX for Winamp is, but still better than nothing.

So all this yadda-yadda is to let you know about this and may be you can add something similar to Bangarang which will no doubt add an extra value to your media player.

Hey! I like the usability of that player and maybe it replace for me current amarok 2 versions witch I dont like in look & feel. I tought that the player maybe should be able to use the nepomuk strigi file indexer directly to become information about music collection. Maybe you can include an option to use it directly as source if that is possible.
Thanks for your great app and the time you spend to it.

Thanks much for the encouragement! :-)

Bangarang uses whatever media data is stored in nepomuk. If you set up strigi to index your data in System Settings, Bangarang will use whatever it put in nepomuk. An option in Bangarang to launch strigi is a possibility though. :-)

There are occasions when the user doesn't have strigi enabled, or prefers not to have strigi index their media files (or because some versions of strigi doesn't index all the metadata used by Bangarang) where they will use Bangarang do the indexing. But, except for data that cannot be extracted by strigi, it isn't required to use Bangarang to do it.

Hope this helps and thanks,
Andrew

I've reported a bug for this already, but I'm wondering if anybody else is experiencing the bug where "No results" is shown when filtering by Genres, even when there are genres entered into the metadata of the audio files in the library.

.. and I would really like it to replace dragon player as the default player for KDE. It is so nice you try to integrate into it the base KDE technologies... What about other integration stuff, like the KDE menus, configurable shortcuts and other stuff?

A shortcuts editor is already in master for the upcoming 2.0 version, not to mention a few other features. The 2.0 feature list is on the developement wiki page at gutorious.

Thanks again!

Good, shortcuts! I was just about to write about that. Tighter integration aside from nepomuk and shortcuts would be very welcome.

I really love Bangarang, but there is still a lot to do and to improve. But for now, it replaced Kaffeine. :)

First of all, Bangarang crashes on playing m4v- files, but kaffeine does too. Maybe its not the fault of bangarang.

The organisation of TV- Shows is really great, but from time to time there are shows without a season. If the season of every single epsiode is "-" there should not be any season- screen.

An extra category for Music videos would be great. Videos, but handled like Audio. So you can insert an artist and they will be sorted by artist. :)

I'll try to provide packages for Fedora! :)

Why not use: yum install bangarang

Strange, last time i tried there was no bangarang. But nice to know, thanks. :)

But it seems to be still v1.0, or?

Yeah, i was swamped lately with work. But i'm currently updating to 1.0.1.

Builds for rawhide, F-13 are done, F-12 running currently. Will be in updates-testing with the next push. Most likely Monday :)

Thanks so much for the encouragement and feedback and also for your offer to package for fedora.

Thanks for the suggestions for dealing with seasonless TV Shows. It would certainly save unnecessary clicks.

I'm still working through the user workflows for Music Videos. I'll definitely keep your suggestion in mind.

I'll look at both of your suggestion for the 2.0 release I'm currently working on.
