    In what way is vlc better susegebr? Can you go into vlc, modify your configuration and have it effect all kde applications for instance? What kind of speaker sound setup do you have right now? Inquiring minds want to know what better means and I really want to know as you could be very very right here.

    Hello jdmcdaniel3
    1e more codecs for VLC far more then xine

    2e configuration off VLC has more items you can configure then xine

    3e the sound is more crispy and full spectrum compared to xine

    All my vcds and dvds work like a charm on a 7.1 surround system (Creative l +r back l+r center and woofer

    so the notifications are soundwise better then with xine

    and last but not least there is a alsa driver for VLC

    i've been in a couple discussions about the vlc backend and hopefully it's benefits, but the rpm that is available in playground (i'm assuming that your previous post which mentions phonon-backend-xine really means phonon-backend-vlc) requires Qt 4.7beta which most users are not using.

    myself included. simply having the beta VLC installed doesn't give you the backend.

    There is a Phonon-backend-vlc located in the following repository:

    Index of /repositories/KDE:/Unstable:/Playground/openSUSE_11.3_KDE_Distro_Stable

    I did load it and it seems to work, or at least it seems to not stop anything from working. I am able to get Dolby Digital 5.1 Pass Through to work in Kaffeine and vlc, but it is hard to know if they are using the selected backend for instance.

    Yes susegebr I have the same bottom eight devices you show, but the top five devices are from MY sound card, which is not nVidia, like yours is. So, it seems to be working I think. I have found no advantage or disadvantage so far, just more devices listed. But all audio device still work, just as they did when the xine backend was selected.

    I did not install the beta either, but my vlc just says it is version 1.1.4 and not 1.1.4.4.4, but I am not going to try and find those last .4.4 as I am not sure what difference that would make for a working system.
