Kirocker Music Display

Kirocker is a Kicker applet that displays what you listen to in Amarok. With this panel applet, you always know what you are listening to, and can watch its cover and star rating: it is always visible. It allows you to rate your music with one click: you can quickly change the number of stars of your music from anywhere on your desktop. Finally, it let you remotely control Amarok with one click from anywhere on your desktop: play next or previous track, pause, play, and seek to another position in the current track.

    Release Notes: You can create, edit, delete, export, and import themes entirely graphically with surprising ease. A little more freedom is given to theme creators. A lot of bugfixes, performance enhancements, and polishing were done.

      Release Notes: This version adds lyrics display in full-screen mode. Usability, as always, has been the key while designing this feature: lyrics automatically scroll to follow the song. You can manually scroll if it is not very well synced, and the automatic scrolling will continue where you wanted. The second major feature is enhanced theming: themes can contain shadowed texts and customizable frames (27 are provided). This allows more variety in themes, and more importantly, more readability of texts over complex background images. Themes have been updated to take advantage of the new possibilities.

          Release Notes: This release fixes an issue with big playlists where Kirocker Music Display would hang up, act badly, or not respond. It also solves a long-standing tedious crash. Kirocker Music Display should be rock solid now.

            Release Notes: Since 3.0, Kirocker Music Display got an even more useful full screen display. It can be launched as a standalone application (without needing the panel applet) or via an Amarok context-menu script. It displays the current date and hour. Blinking window taskbar entries are shown to indicate activity. The next playing songs are shown. A lot of bugs have been fixed. The support for and radio streams is especially interesting.
