KMPlayer for N770/N8x0

Here is v0.9.2 for Chinook/Diablo (Gregale/Bora still on v0.7.4), a video media player front end for osso-media-server, MPlayer and Flash through a Netscape plugin loader implementation.

Features

The playlist and recents file are default stored in the /home/user/.kmplayer/ directory. If you want to change this location then you have to do this with gconftool either in a terminal application or via SSH login.
The commandline should look like:
    gconftool -s -t string /apps/maemo/kmplayer/data_dir /media/mmc1/kmplayer
    
Version v0.8.1 comes with a playlist.xml example, which will be loaded if there is no playlist.xml.

If instead pressing the play button, the save button is clicked, the backend process is replaced with a version that downloads the file. As soon as the playlists plays a multi-media link, the downloader will popup a dialog where the file should be saved.
The downloader will show a banner while saving the file.
After saving, the local file can be found in the Most Recent list.

KMPlayer-0.7.3 featuring browser plugin support.


Support for the <object> HTML tag, click on the 'Persistent Playlists' or on any of its 'Group' tags, choose 'Playlist'|'Edit' from the menu and simply paste the tag from YouTube. Sync editing with the 'recycle' toolbar button and end the edit-mode by eg. clicking on 'Most Recent'.
With version 0.9.0 support for the media:xxx tags is added for Atom feeds. This allows searching Youtube by opening links like http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/videos?vq=maemo (the query is maemo in this example).


SMIL

Although the SMIL support is far from complete, KMPlayer can already play some SMIL files out there on the WEB.
SMIL is mostly used as metadata for REAL based streaming. It's however also a language for making multi-media presentations.

Some nice SMIL files on the WEB that KMPlayer more or less supports are

Playlist editing

If you open a XML file, choose 'Show all' from the 'Playlist' menu, you can browse it.
Also, when selecting the 'Edit' option in the menu, you can actualy edit the raw XML at any point in the tree and merge it back in the tree with the green button and of course save it too.
