I just installed the new amarok 2.5 from kde updated apps repository. I have 2 issues with it:
fetch fonts is broken. It seems that after the install, there was no longer a script installed to fetch the fonts. I then tried to install the ultimate lyrics script, and now amarok is trying to fetch the lyrics during playback. But it never finds any, and my mp3 tags are filled in ok. This was no problem in amarok 2.4
video applet is still broken. When I click on a youtube video it goes straight to the next song in my playlist. The video itself never plays, even when I select it again in my playlist.This has been broken at least since amarok 2.2. Am I doing something wrong since I do not understand how a plugin can be broken over 3 new major updates… Do I need to install something?
No, no, no, forget that; it won’t work. The issue is that they dropped qt4-qtscript from the dependencies list and, as a result, scripts are disabled. You’ll have to re-build the RPM with qt4-qtscript installed to have scripts working again.
Hi, just jumping in as I have got the same issue with the Packman build as well

Summary : Media Player for KDE
Amarok is a media player for all kinds of media. This includes MP3, Ogg
Vorbis, audio CDs, podcasts and streams. Play lists can be stored in
.m3u or .pls files.
Distribution: Essentials / openSUSE_12.1
None of the scripts seams to work. Only the the “Radio Germany” gives an error message that QPixmap variable cannot be found. Lyrics, recordstream etc. dont give any message but dont work. was used to see settings entries in 2.4.3 but none of the scripts will show up in “Extras” and “Settings”.
Maybe this is a generic bug then and not necessarily related to the openSUSE builds.
I have the same issue, I rolled back to 2.4.3 (it’s in the openSUSE updates repo) and locked the package so it’s not updated. It’s not a real solution but at least for now I have the scripts back. Maybe it’s fixed in KDE 4.8, I haven’t tried it. Has anybody filed a bug report?
About the video applet I have never tried it.
I haven’t done anything in particular, I believe the script (videotab) is installed alongside AmaroK by default on OpenSuSE. I am running OS 12.1 with the default KDE and AmaroK from the default oss (or rather the update) repo.
I did a check playing youtube videos but that script, which I installed manually with the script manager, did not work for me either, however, the video applet works with local videos.
