versatile media player for KDE
  20 reviews

Kaffeine is a media player for KDE based on VLC, which gives it a wide variety of supported media types and lets Kaffeine access CDs, DVDs, and network streams easily. Kaffeine also has an excellent support of digital TV (DVB).

Kaffeine can keep track of multiple playlists simultaneously, and supports autoloading of subtitle files for use while playing video.

This worked very well about one year ago with my WinTV-quadHD tuner, then it would only record one channel at a time for about a month or so, then no channels. Now, it won't even produce any channel scan results. The hardware works fine in Windows using the Hauppauge software, WinTV v8.5.

URL is old (newer one is https://apps.kde.org/kaffeine/) , When I selected 'LOAD" in 'Software Manager' it loads the application MythTV. Not sure why.

A must have for TV (dvb-t) recording and viewing. Install is a breeze just as it should be.

It's great but, sometimes it cannot handle all files - than i have to use VLC. But interface is much better than VLC.

1. Herstellerseite/IN checken nach linux unterstützung Beispiel Hauppauge WinTV-MiniStick (USB 2.0, DVB-T) Modell 55009 - wird unterstützt. Getestet in Ubuntu 11.04. http://www.hauppauge.de/site/support/support_linux.html 2. Firmware herunterladen Die Firmware muss heruntergeladen und nach /lib/firmware kopiert werden 3.Some distributions like Ubuntu have packaged some of these firmwares into a package like "linux-firmware-nonfree". Try sudo apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree 4. Player installieren: Koffeine enjoy!

Just worked out of the box for TV DVB-T. Synced regional channels - like on a normal TV, and that's it. Just perfect!

Player does not play a lot of formats. This is unacceptable. I suppose it should be removed from mint repo
