Amarok 1.x Scripts by deanpovey 11 comments

there seem to be problems with chars like '&'.

I tried this:
1) Take some .ogg file and move to directory "Test Me"
2) Add file to amarok and convert with script => works great ;-)

Then i tried the following:
1) Take the same .ogg file and move to directory "Test & Me"
2) Add file to amarok and convert with script => error occurs!

Error message in amarok was that ressource could not be found...

... is this a bug which would take a long time to fix, or could you fix it for me?

Another thing that would be great to make this script even better:
- Add a preferences dialog to specify an output folder so that the transcoded files would not be stored in the same folder as the original file (if format does not change it would be a good idea to just copy the file to the folder). This would ease creation of cds (with or withour transcoding! K3b has some similiar featurefor .mp3 files, but it is much easier to search music files in amarok then it is in k3b) - Sep 30 2007

Amarok 1.x Scripts by sputnik82 11 comments

After I did some modifications to the script it now works great.

I had to do some modifications, because I only have a 2x16 lcd and because I wanted to see artist and title I changed the line of the slider and the volume bar with the title's line.

It would be great if some things could be done in a configuration dialog ;-)

Other things that come into my mind when thinking about improvements are:
1) Make the artist/title slide, if it exceeds the lcd lengt
2) Display some text like "nothing playing" if amarok plays nothing

However, you did some great work!

Thanks,
