Description of problem: When trying to listen streaming media on Internet with
Konqueror, we can't choose the player we want to use.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): KDE 3.5
Actual results: No choice between available players

Expected results: be able to choose the player we want to use

Additional info: This is a feature request, not a bug

Fedora 7 test bugs should be filed against "devel", not against test1/2/3. This
isn't obvious, I know. Moving this report so it isn't lost.

This is a bulk message -- I apologize if this was actually meant to be targeted
against a different release. If so, please fix or let me know. Thanks.

Comment 3 Aznar 2007-05-01 15:53:36 UTC
For example, when you're going on , you can't chose the player
you want to use for reading the stream. If I want to play it in Amarok and not
in Mplayer, I can't.

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2007-05-01 16:18:37 UTC
Seems more a "how to set default player for a given mime-type" issue to me.

I don't think firefox (or any other browser afaik) behaves any different. 
Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Comment 5 Aznar 2007-05-02 06:53:06 UTC
Firefox enable us to chose the player we want to use, but it also suggests
default player... Having a default player is great but cannot chose another one
can be sometimes problematic.

Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2007-10-08 12:22:25 UTC
This is not something solvable withing Fedora really (patches welcome tho!),
it's an upstream KDE issue. Having said that, you'd be better served sending
this to instead.

Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2008-02-19 15:00:51 UTC
Closing->CantFix (would have used Upstream, which is where something like this
really belongs, but afaict, that hasn't been done yet).
