...just collecting ideas and bug reports here
(roughly ordered by priority - which doesn't necessarily have any influence
on the order in which they get fixed/implemented)


- Info area below display is empty while playing a DVD even though there
  is at least a little info to report about a DVD.

- When playback is stopped, the seek indicator stays in the same place.
  This is unsightly. It should be reset to the start of the seek bar.

- Hard-wiring of F10/Menu for menu popup can't be removed yet. It's
  currently possible for the input focus to be placed such that gxine has to
  handle these keys itself. References:
    * bugzilla.gnome.org bug 80432 (hard-wiring of F10 etc.)
    * sourceforge bug 1218956 (use of F10 within gxine)

ideas / feature requests

- hierarchical playlists (for playlist files in the playlist)

- message event support for DVD error messages

- make main window skinnable
  - doable to some extent via gxine-specific gtkrc & XML

- iconified mode for audio only playback?
  Probably not needed - the video widget can be hidden automatically.

- add command to wait for stream end and other events to script engine

- Don't "rewind" the movie when "stop" is pressed - blank the window only.
  - Eject button (replacing current stop button)?

- Which 'live' streams are pauseable?
  - Definitely not the stream from vdr - it handles pausing itself.
  - For pauseable streams: it's possibly useful that you can pause it then
    continue minutes later (maybe after eating lots of memory) from where you
    stopped - but you should be made very aware that it's no longer "live",
    but more like "delayed live", so maybe there could also be a display
    like: "LIVE -2:45". (Fast-forward would also be possible for a delayed

- clear log
  It'd have to clear only the shown text, I think. (Timestamps in libxine?)

- double-click => full-screen mode
  Need to check interaction with DVD menus (click claiming)

- auto-show and auto-hide toolbar
  Based on pointer position; needs a timeout and pointer shape change.

unsorted stuff

* Mediamarks aren't very useful for DVDs (dvd:/). I get the impression
  that mediamarks are primarily intended for bookmarking the addresses of
  online broadcast stations, true?

* Support nvtv TV-out (as xine-ui 0.9.13 does).
  (I don't have the hardware for this. Anybody? [DS])

* When the stream in non-seekable, or when no stream is loaded
  - hide or disable the slider bar
