            Great stuff. Simple interface. Does the right thing most of the time...

            Excellent player, congratulations. Am using it on kde

            3.4.2 with xine-libs 1.1.0 without any problems. You

            get a 10/10 from me, because I consider this to be a

            killer app with killer features, e.g. autopause when

            switching desktops. Maybe support for the mplayer

            lib would be too much to ask for?

            One minor detail now that I think of it. When I switch

            to minimized mode, the window doesn't seem to

            autoresize yet. A workaround for me is to do


            Anyway thanks a lot!

            Kaffeine .5
            I upgraded Kaffeine using the KDE package manager in MEPIS Linux. Disaster struck. The Kaffeine player crashes constantly, when I try to play ogg files from a file.

            The version .1 worked fine, wish I could get it back.
