Very good player! It's awesome!
But there is a way to add vdpau support? If it there is, I'll use only loopy player for my KDE! ;)

Thanks for this video player.

Just a note:
- the loopy.desktop has an encoding problem,
- the title bar has also an encoding problem when the title has non-ascii characters.

You probably know it, but it exists also a video player based on phonon libraries, named Dragon Player. It may interest you.

Good luck for the future.

I really love this player! I only miss two features at the moment.

- subtitle support
- minimal window support (only display the movie, no menus or anything else)

Only I can say it: Good job MonsterMagne!! Wonderful to be a first release :-)


I installed it and I tested with some formats and works A LOT better than Dragon player & I'm thinking about remove Dragon player, VLC and SMplayer and leave this alone in my Kubuntu install if it have more features.


As suggestions to improve it (in future releases) that I would like see:
- Can you add (as option) that remember the seek position of the video like Dragon player and SMPlayer?

- Can you add (as option) that remember the window size of the video like Dragon player do? Currently in v0.3 the window size is common for all opened videos and I saw other video players that the first time that a video is opened is opened with the original size but remember the user costumized size for that video (per video, not as global size).

- Can you lower the harcoded value of seeking in the config menu? minium value of 10 seconds annoy me because I want to set the mousewheel seek to 3 or 5 seconds...

- Would be nice if you can add the playlist of the screenshot in the fullscreen mode :-(

- When you click on a video in Dolphin while you are playing another video Loopy removes the entire playlist AND add the new video, is more logical if start the new video but leave the rest of the playlist intact (it could be better as an option in the config menu).

- An optional OSD message when you increase or decrease the volume or you click to seek forward/backward or use the mouse wheel, pause...


- MKV format support.

- Subtitles support (In this momment I haven't a movie with a subtitles file but I haven't found any menu about it in the video player so I think that isn't supported yet).
