Projects / Bangarang


Bangarang is a semantically empowered media player. Fully integrated with KDE’s Nepomuk semantic storage, Bangarang has access to indexed media information and automatically shares its own media information, rating, tags, and usage statistics with other Nepomuk powered applications. Anything Phonon multimedia system plays, Bangarang plays. Audio settings and video settings are automatically enabled if the Phonon backend supports it. Plasma desktop widgets with MPRIS support can directly control Bangarang. Bangarang keeps you in control of your media experience. It provides quick access to lists of recently played, highest rated, and frequently played items. The Info View provides helpful information when you need it. Media information can be edited easily. It can fetch artist, song, movie, and TV show information from open data providers like,, and Bangarang lets you use either tags or files and folders to organize your media in any way you wish.
