Debian-8-KDE Amarok

Postby vinnywright » 2015-07-30 02:17

So I did a search on the forum for Amarok ,,,,,,,,,and did not see anything along the lines of what I am about to post ,,,and some may want to know,,,,,,, :)

I like KDE and Amarok ,,,,,,,but I was dismayed to see and hear that on my base/default install Amarok had no fade out on play/pause and the visualization would not work .

It turns out that it is the Phonon Multimedia Backend VLC or "phonon-backend-vlc" ,,,,,,, for Amarok to have this functionality you need the "phonon-backend-gstreamer" and the "gstreamer1.0-plugins-good" & "gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly"

then in system settings>Multimedia>Audio and Video settings>backend tab , select the Gstreamer plugin and click prefer to move it to the top of the list then click apply.

I know this seams a trivial thing ,,but if you like the fade out and visuals (actually I usually have ProjectM running full screen for visuals ) in Amarok you will need "phonon-backend-gstreamer"

Hi there, just confirmed amarok + KDE does not do fade out by default.
I then installed your recommended plugins and libraries but they have no effect.
It seems amarok is dependent on VLC Phonon backend ONLY

:oops: Forgot to reinstall amarok after all those libraries from bad to ugly are installed.
Now, amarok works with Phonon-Gstreamer backend!
