KDE The KDE Project today announced the immediate availability of KDE 3.5.4, a maintenance release. Significant enhancements include improved support for removable devices. Multiple holidays can now start on the same date in KOrganizer. Lots of fixes have been applied to Konqueror's HTML engine, KHTML. The dialog for sending client-side SSL certificates is now more usable, the StartCom SSL certificate was added and KNetworkConf now supports Fedora Core 5 and handles WEP better.

Kmplayer can be just as "basic" wrt to interface, but is far more feature-full.

Codeine is nice, but doesn't really do much, which is its goal. Sometimes you want more from a player though.

smart install kmplayer

I'll have a look. Personally I'm done with Kaffeine when they started doing more than just video, so that's how I found Codeine. No experience with kmplayer however...

But to be honest: wouldn't it be great if KDE had an video-only player that has an Amarok touch?

Very powerfull, but a nice and friendly ui.

Agreed...Particularly for torrent junkies/heavy downloaders/rippers/etc

Those of us that have TONS of media on our computers besides music would greatly benefit from such an app...

When you've got All of ST:Voyager, TNG, TOS, Futurama, Invader Zim, Aquateen Hunger Force...And tons more...It would be nice to have everything cached, with metadata. Organize it, randomize it, whatever - give me the power and comfort I get with amarok but in a video player that's designed for such things - and you'd have a mighty donation.

Then again, there's not nearly as much demand for such an app as there was (and is) for a decent Linux MP3(Audio) player...so I won't hold my breath...

Hey, we can dream!
