[Gnome MPLAYER] - Use of KIO SLAVES to open remote files instead of CIFS

Bug #737201 reported by André Madureira on 2011-03-17
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
mplayer (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-mplayer



I did a bug report about Kubuntu (KDE 4.5.1) inability on CIFS auto mounting of SAMBA shares like Nautilus in GNOME does (for more info see the report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kubuntu-kde4-meta/+bug/730984 )... I was advised by Jonathan Riddell , in this bug report above, that GNOME MPLAYER should support KIO SLAVES functionality that enables remote file access in KDE environments, or let KDE know that the program (in this case GNOME MPLAYER) don't support KIO SLAVES and therefore KDE should auto download the file to the PC to open it...


Support KIO SLAVES... Or at least let KDE know it don't handle KIO SLAVES to let it auto download the remote file to open it in the local PC...

PS: I don't know if the solution above is the better (alternatively we can make KDE auto mount remote paths with CIFS like Nautilus does in GNOME too) one because it's not a GNOME MPLAYER specific problem, it affects also LIBREOFFICE and VLC... So, if any of you think in a different manner, please, let us know... All of us want LINUX become better and this needs our commitment with it's development and, with that, make it easier to the common user of PC's to handle it...

Thanks for your attention,

André M.

I did a bug report in the LIBREOFFICE package (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/730264) and AMAROK (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/amarok/+bug/738262) and VLC (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/vlc/+bug/737192) because all of them don't support KIO SLAVES or (in the case of AMAROK) don't handle it as well as it should (AMAROK is a program done to work on KDE and therefore should at least support KIO SLAVES because it is a characteristic of KDE)...

This affects the MPLAYER package and not the GNOME MPLAYER GUI (Graphical User Interface) because it affects the KMplayer as well as SMplayer...

affects: gnome-mplayer (Ubuntu) → mplayer (Ubuntu)
