I would like to have a background music option built into Stellarium, maybe
using different sources like internet radio or a custom playlist from YouTube.
I like to listen to what i call "cosmic" music when running Stellarium and
looking through my telescope :)
You seem to have CSS turned off.

Strellarium is an astronomy application, not an MP3 player.

I'm kind of getting tired of your comments, please help the forums by saying
something on-topic, it makes them better.
POSSIBLE SOLUTION: download the video on keepvid, get an mp3 player, and play
it while running stellarium
OTHER SOLUTION: create a dynamic plugin, or get the souce and use qsound:
P.S. It would be great if it would work :3. Working on finding a way to embed
live data and podcasts into stellarium.
Actually Stellarium can already do this. I have the sound module compiled in
my version and can run music in the background. The problem is that the sound
driver has not been fully implemented and the avilable driver only works with
some sound systems. There are some sample audio scripts in the script folder.
Stellarium is not an mp3 player but it should have one built in, because in my
opinion a feature like this would only add to the whole user experience. If
you design the GUI right, maybe just into a popup layer in the lower left
corner where the other menus are, with some basic controls, you can keep focus
on astronomy and the whole purpose of stellarium, without turning it into a
jukebox. I will find some time to play with this and i hope i get back soon
with my results.
thanks for the heads up, i will look into it
I just wrote a script that plays Chopin's Polonaise (MP3 version) in the
background quite successfully on my version of Stellarium 0.11.2. As I said
before Stellarium already has the facility to play MP3, OGG and WAV files.
In any case Windows media player will play a background sound file (playlist)
while you run Stellarium without any bother so if you must have "sound" while
observing this method will save messing with Stellarium's core source.
I don't know.. I find the whole idea of Stellarium playing .mp3 files
ridiculous. However. However. a much better result can be achieved by using
iTunes or something comparable. Something that lets you switch from playlist
to playlist quickly and smoothly.
I've got tons of spacemusic from Jonn Serrie, for example, and just jam on
that through iTunes.
